BARRY BONDS is used to walking. He did it in record-setting fashion during his days as a slugger with the San Francisco Giants. His great ability to slam home runs resulted in Bonds being the frequent recipient of intentional base on balls. Now after a trial years in the making, it appears Bonds may walk again. Major League Baseball's all-time home run king was found guilty of one obstruction of justice charge this week but jurors deadlocked on the three charges at the heart of the government’s perjury case, including two counts of lying about the use of steroids and human growth hormones. The Bonds' probe encompassed some seven years and countless dollars. It yielded very little in return, as even the one conviction may be overturned. To the public eye, Bonds is a poster boy for steroids use. But the government struck out in pitching its case. I think it would be futile to pursue additional charges against baseball's bad boy. He appears bullet proof. That may have come about from years of steroid use.
