Barry Bonds Guilty: Can We Just Move on Now?
Barry Bonds found guilty of obstruction, not guilty of perjury
Weeks after the trial began, years after the crimes allegedly took place, and eons after baseball fans in and out of the Bay Area stopped caring, Barry Bonds has been convicted of one charge of obstruction of justice and acquitted on three charges of perjury. Meanwhile, the government just nearly avoided a federal shutdown, we're engaged in two wars, and the Giants just won the FREAKING WORLD SERIES with CODY EFFING ROSS as their big slugger. But, yeah, glad the government just spent years and plenty of funds nailing a big-headed slugger for doing the same thing everyone else in his era was doing in order to smash almost all of the big offensive records in baseball.
Bonds will serve his sentence and move on, eventually get into the HOF (yes, it will happen eventually, he's too good to keep out), and go down as the Ty Cobb of his era—a human being of questionable character who was just too damn good at baseball to ignore.
