Bonds Denies Using Gamma Radiation

Has there ever been a less believable excuse than Barry Bonds’ claim that he took some substances but that he had no idea that they were steroids? I suppose he never wondered how is homerun hitting prowess went through the roof after the age when most players skills and strength are declining or why his body and head size and shape changed dramatically in his later career.

Don’t get me wrong. Barry should not be the only one singled out. This is systemic. But Bonds suggestion that he didn’t know he was taking a powerful collection of roids is like David Banner suggesting that he assumed the gamma radiation was just a multivitamin.

Concentration is important!
