It’s about secrets, success and not getting caught
June 29, 2007
Barry Bonds’ has hit 749 home runs and it’s likely that he’ll soon break Hank Aaron’s 755 home run record. This is truly a historic event despite being surrounded by claims that he’s only successful because he cheats. It’s the same complaint heard about another Bond — that’s right, James Bond 007.
Bond pundits say that the baseball player has a trainer who slips him steroids or injects him with human growth hormones and that he should not be celebrated even though he’s never been caught or found guilty. Many of these same whiners complain that James Bond shouldn’t be celebrated because he wins only because Q is loading him with watches emitting magnetic rays and Austin Healey’s with ejector seats.
Then there are those who claim that Barry is virtually a different guy today than years ago. They say he isn’t the same size or that he doesn’t look like he did when he started playing ball. These same types say that James isn’t even the same actor that played him when he first walked onto movie screens; and that his hair has changed colors and so has is accent.
But what’s really going on here? The reality is that the Bonds are hated because they are successful, don’t get caught and use slight of hand to keep their opponents off guard.
And that’s the truth. If you don’t believe me ask Pussy Galore.
