Like Hot Dogs and Apple Pie

past timeSo it finally feels like summer. It’s 80 degrees, it’s sunny, everything is green… and this little thing called baseball has found it’s way into my life today. Mind Inversion’s collective alma mater is the questionable establishment of La Crescent High School, home to none other than the Lancers.

So it’s my day off, and the baseball team has somehow made their way to the State Tournament here in St. Cloud. So I figure why not go out and enjoy this beyond beautiful day with a couple friends as I watch my former friends take to the field. So the game goes very well, we win 2-1 in a thriller and move onto the winners bracket of the tournament and to a game later this very same day. And as I write this in between the games, I’m recalling why I love baseball oh so very much. It’s a beautiful sport. Not only due to the weather, but to the game as well. It takes precision, thought, manipulation, passion. I geek out about sports, so excuse me for this worthless post, but I felt like sharing my love of the game with everyone else. And hey Timmy, Go Cubs! (just for good measure)

Urine Sample Links Barry Bonds to Steroids

barry_bonds_breaks_record I know that you guys are used to getting posts on this blog about music. But baseball is a sport that is very close to me, and I have a great admiration for it. I can’t tell you the amount of disgust I have had in the last 5 years hearing about players that are seemingly legends, becoming enemies because of steroids. Barry Bonds claimed in 2003 that he never “knowingly” took steroids. I think this is a bunch of bullshit, everyone knows that Barry literally turned from a twig into the Incredible Hulk. Bonds has a new perjury case set for March 2nd, and I can’t wait to see what happens to this guy. For years I watched players like Ken Griffey Jr. dominate the sport of baseball without ever having to use performance enhancing drugs. It’s ridiculous to me how much of a mockery the sport of baseball has become, it’s our national passtime and ratings are dropping off like crazy.

Considering Marc Ecko already took the ball that broke Hank Aaron’s record and put an asterisk on it via Vote 756, there isn’t much left that can happen to Bonds except for hard time in jail. If this guy gets caught for perjury he is probably going to be going away for awhile. The issue that still reigns is that he denied ever being injected with steroids. If this sample does exist and is positive, for the lack of a better term, Bonds is screwed.

One more picture for all of you who don’t think he did steroids…
