The world is just a little safer today because Barry Bonds has been convicted on one count of obstruction of justice. It is now safe to leave your homes.
Bonds can now add "Convicted Felon" to his resume alongside "Seven-Time MVP" and "All-Time Home Run Champion."
The jury could not come to a verdict on the three counts of perjury that Bonds was also tried for. According to legal experts the guilty verdict for obstruction doesn't make sense. Their argument: How can you obstruct justice without lying or deceiving? I will leave that argument to the lawyers and the writers for "Law and Order."
The bigger question is this: Was it all worth it?
