Thank gawd this is in federal court so we will be spared 24/7 coverage on Court TV and CNN

I-Team: Bonds begins to assemble Dream Team (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/2007/11/30/2007-11-30_barry_bonds_begins_to_assemble_legal_dre.html)

As Barry Bonds prepares for his first appearance in court on perjury and obstruction of justice charges in San Francisco, he has begun assembling what could be the most powerful legal Dream Team since the O.J. Simpson trial.

Unfortunately for him, his "dream team" will face federal prosecutors rather than Marsha Clark and her band of nitwits. My guess is this ends in a plea bargain with no jail time.

Well if I can't tune in to see how many different hairstyles Marcia Clark can wear in a month, it's just not worth watching anyway.

The reality is that given the love San Franciscans have for Barry it may be hard to find 12 people to convict. Bonds just may roll the dice banking on that.

My friend Sophia moved there 15 years ago and is a rational person on all subjects except Bonds. She lives in a very hip area known as Bernal Heights and one afternoon she took me to a place called Skip's Tavern. Well I let my views on Barry be known and the entire bar ganged up on me and this is after the book came out.

The feds can move the case out of San Fran if they have trouble seating an impartial jury, but I hear you.

You would think that the people who would call Skip's home would know better

Speaking of Bonds, did you know HBO is trying to make a movie about the whole thing? Sickening.

Again, he committed a felony. Which is a felony, which is a felony.

It didn't have to pertain to anything he did in baseball or the fact he did steroids. Barry Bonds committed a felony, which is a felony. And a felony. SO did Michael Vick... sorry if there are "more important issues in the world" but a felony is a felony.

I doubt it would be difficult to get a change of venue to Sacramento.

Heck, not even that far. I bet if we moved it just across the bay we'd get a favorable ruling. :cool:

Federal court, you have to go to Sacramento for the closest one I think.
