Relative to Bonds, the grand jury is talking about illegal substances. There are many apologists in the media, like Peter Gammons, who have tried to classify steroids like Andro as nutritional supplements, thus confusing the general public.
It’s all a smoke screen to trivialize the impact of these substances and to further legitimize the HR records of Big Mac and Bonzo.
But we are not talking about eating raw eggs, taking protein supplements, creatine and multi-vitamins. At least I’m not. I’m talking about the stuff that will dramatically increase your muscle mass that you can’t get at your local GNC. The stuff your trainer has to go to Mexico to get. The stuff that, if everyone knew you were taking, would brand you as a cheater. The stuff that makes your testicles shrink up to the size of marbles. The stuff that makes a person prone to heart attacks and ‘roid rage. The stuff, if ingested over a long period of time, that will kill you. The stuff you’d never ever want your kids taking.
I think you know exactly what’s at stake here Mr. Clinton.
