Barry Bonds to be sentenced today

Barry Bonds finds out the penalty for minor hemming and hawing today, as he will be sentenced in U.S. Federal court for his April conviction.

Most likely: probation in the form of house arrest. I’m assuming his house is pretty nice, though.  But that’s what other athletes in the BALCO case have gotten for single-count convictions. The feds want him to do hard time, but it just ain’t gonna happen.

But no matter what happens, this should serve as a lesson to all of you: don’t ramble for a minute before answering a question. Ever.
