Baroid's Boss Emerges from the "Shadows"

San Francisco Giants owner Peter Magowan told reporters on Tuesday that the organization will “celebrate appropriately”, should Baroid the Steroid pass Babe Ruth on the all time home run list. We’re not quite sure what that means, but we’re guessing that free syringes will be mixed in there somehow.

Magowan and team president Larry Baer have taken the low road during Baroid’s excellent adventure last week, after allegations of rampant steroid use were published in Sports Illustrated. They emerged on Tuesday to get the cash cow rolling once again.

"It's certainly not going to go unnoticed or uncommemorated," Baer said. "He's our player and it would be a tremendous accomplishment. We don't have a hold on what we're going to do. It won't be silence."

Translation: This is a fantastic money making opportunity for the San Francisco Giants and the guy that signs my paychecks. It would be foolish of us not to squeeze as much as we can out of the homers* who fork over the green year after year, even though we've yet to win a World Championship in the 5 decades that we've been in San Francisco.

* Editor’s Note: The term “homer” is used to describe the Giants fans who are unwilling to recognize a cheat when they see one, not the drug induced round trippers that have been sailing into McCovey Cove the past five years.

Money rules the professional game, like any other industry. The Giants will do whatever they can to SPIN Bonds and his "achievements" and put more money in their pockets. By not supporting Bonds, it would look like they accepted and allowed his "choice" to use steroids.

We all know they DID accept and allowed his use of steroids. This "situation" is going to morf into a big, bad monster that the Giants, Major League Baseball, and their commissioner will not be able to escape.

I have posted my views about this and other sports topics on my site TexSport Publications (http://texsportpub.blogspot.com).

Please feel free to drop by and post your comments. We welcome all views and opinions, no matter how ridiculous they are.
