Our buddy Larry Brown of Larry Brown Sports, who doesn't seem to like Barry Bonds as much as we do (and we totally understand why of course), dug up some interesting info today on The Fanhouse. In what I don't think is a huge surprise, it appears that Giants fans rigged the All-Star voting system to get Bonds into the All-Star game.
Of course we did.
This is Silicon Valley. Computer nerds run this town like facist dictators. They can program code that'll make you punch yourself in the face. I've tried to fight them, but then my credit card doesn't work anymore.
Bonds is still super popular in the Bay Area, regardless of what he has done, and people here want him in the All-Star Game at home. With the best computer minds in the world giving him an edge in the voting, I'm surprised Bonds wasn't elected President.
