12/13/2004: Thought for the Day:
Who are the victims of cheating? Not the fans--they love it! Bigger hits, faster races, new records. Until an athlete gets caught, that is, which is why Bonds was booed at the World Series this year, when he was collecting an award. Unlike most sports cheaters, who tend to be needy approval-seekers, he seemed not to mind. But the cloud over his achievements could well turn into an asterisk beside his name in the record books--and he'll have nobody to blame but himself.
Don't cry for him, though, but for the unheralded, probably underpaid, but clean .280 hitters out there. If there are any.
