Bonds, etc.

So the overwhelming feeling I had after staying up to watch Bonds' homer last night was... this is so much cooler than it's been made out to be. I'm usually pretty good at judging things for myself. But I've just been so bummed about this Barry Bonds thing. I've felt for a while the public/media has been sleeping on the steroids issue. Somehow the attention has been focused on one man (or a few, if you count Sosa, Palmeiro, McGwire, Canseco, etc.), when there are literally dozens of fascinating directions we could be going. Like, for instance, how on earth Bud Selig can claim to be surprised about this development. And there weren't many people trying to present another side of the story - at least not those with the prime real-estate in sports broadcasting.

I felt robbed. And more than anything, I don't want to get robbed again. We've got more choice about the content we view than ever before. I have a blog. But I don't like the blog medium. I want my content to be neatly packaged, and I don't want to have go find out it every night. So how do we get that?
