29. Mistress testifies: Strike three
From :

"Barry Bonds' former mistress (Kimberly Bell) testified this morning that the Giants star confessed to her in 1999 that he was using steroids."


"Bell testified in a matter-of-fact voice for much of her first hour on the witness stand, describing the course of a relationship that she said began in the parking lot of Candlestick Park in 1994 and ended with a bitter breakup in 2003."


So how does Bonds' defense counter?


Later, (Bell) faced intense cross examination from defense lawyer Cristina Arguedas, who said Bell had tried to profit from the broken relationship by posing nude for Playboy and pitching a book, "In the Shadow of a Giant," about Bonds.

What does posing nude for Playboy have to do with the perjury charge?


So we got testimony from the Drug Agent that Bonds "impeded the investigation." Plus testimony from Bond's best friend and his mistress that he admitted taking steroids. These people aren't making this shit up. There's no motive. Strike three.
