    Music == ART
    Baseball == SPORT

    Watching baseball may be entertaining to YOU but it consists of athletes competing against one another which effects their own record, salary and their teams win/loss column.

    Haven't any of you played sports before? One person cheating ruins the whole game for everyone else.

    And athletic teams represent the communities they come from on a national and international scale. Olympics anyone?

    I also don't think that Bonds is the only one taking heat about steroids; however he is the most obvious one since everyone is following the home run race. Anyone who has ever tested positive for steroids has been heckled, booed, and ostracized by the baseball stadiums across the country.

    exactly. again, i wont be surprised to find out that a-rod is on steroids or randy johnson. i'll be sad if a-rod were ever tested for it. he's a good figure who represents baseball. he doesnt go out and get hammered, act crazy or get into fights with his teammates (unlike carlos zambrano or lou pinella they make baseball players look bad)

    My point is that people who make their living in the arts are competing no less than people in professional sports. Athletes can only earn even a penny from sports because sports are entertaining to watch. People will pay to attend a game or will watch ads during breaks in the game on TV. Professional athletes are entertainers. Portraying a performance as a competition between cities or universities or nations is just a very effective marketing strategy.

    And I wasn't playing the race card, although I admit the racial contrast in Bonds' support is pretty fascinating. I was only listing differences between him and Lance Armstrong, who seems untouchable. Even though his astounding level of performance in one of the druggiest of sports and the allegations against him should be enough for him to be equally hated. I wonder the same about Roger Clemens, whose career had begun to suck before he began bulking up and pitching like a much younger man. With the occasional 'roid rage too. Hey; he and Lance are both from TX! Hmmm . . . maybe we'll accept anything from a Texan.
