75. As a Resident of San Francisco
It sickened me to see all those Giant fans stand up and cheer for a guy who basically cheated his way to the top. What is wrong with these fans? They don't seem to care how someone wins, just so long as they can feel like they are winners too? I saw a great sign, that said "Babe Ruth did it with Beer and Hot dogs, what did you do it with Barry?". All those players who have used steroids and broken records have tainted baseball forever.

Even though now there will be harsh rules against steroids, Bonds should have been brougth before the commisioner and asked to step down before he has tainted the record. There must be a asterik placed next to Mark McGuire, Bonds and others names who broke records while under the influence.

San Francisco fans should be ashamed but many of them are not. Many have turned a blind eye towards what has happened. I have left the Giants support now and root for the Los Angeles Angels. Not only
do I not respect the team, but many of the fans as well. I will still love this city, but more than just the FOG hangs over it now.
