Another Reason to Hate Barry Bonds

Barry BondsIt’s terrible that we have to tarnish this exquisite website with content involving the villainous ballplayer turned bodybuilder Barry Bonds, but it’s important to spread bad vibes and negative karma regarding the Giants’ lab rat.

As if Barry Bonds weren’t despicable enough, his lawyer is doing a wonderful job of furthering his negative public image.

Attorney Michael Rains, speaking in regard to the Feds’ possible indictment of Bonds, proclaimed in the New York Daily News,

“I’ll outmaneuver them at every turn. “I’ve kicked their ass in private, I’ll continue to kick their ass in public.”

My, how professional. Just the kind of guy you’d want representing you in a court of law. He sounds a lot like the other rock-heads Bonds shares needles with at the gym.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Last Friday, Rains said this to the San Jose Mercury News:

“This investigation is based on the political considerations of this (presidential) administration. The Balco case is a legacy of (President) Bush, and it is a catastrophic failure – legally and from a public-relations standpoint.”

Again, pure genius. Now Barry Bonds is on the agenda of the Commander-in-Chief — because he doesn’t have enough issues to deal with. Who knew?

Why Rains has chosen to shoot his mouth off now, at the height of Bonds’ chase of 755, is anyone’s guess.
