ode to Greg Anderson…

Greg Anderson is the personal trainer for Barry Bonds, arguably the greatest major league baseball player in the history of the game.

Bonds is on trial for lying about using steroids and Greg, his childhood friend and personal trainer refuses to testify against him.

…………………………………………………………………………

Greg Anderson has served (in total) more than a year of prison time for refusing to testify against his childhood friend – Barry Bonds.

Recently, Greg was sent back to Prison because he still refuses to testify against his friend.

This past week, a previous “best friend” of Bonds, a man whose name is not worth remembering, but someone who benefited from Bonds’ friendship — like a leech benefits from attaching itself to a living creature — testified against his friend alleging that he saw the super star player enter a bedroom with a syringe.

And then this “best friend” went on to betray even further by creating doubt in Bonds innocence with stories of the sluggers alleged interest in steroids.

……………………………………………….

Steroids don’t help you hit a baseball.

There is no magic potion out there which we can take to help us achieve what Bonds did in his career.

………………………………………………..

However, my issue isn’t if he did or didn’t…

For me, what’s most disappointing are the number of best friends who are lining up to testify against him.

Next week, a previous girl friend of many years is going to testify.
This same woman was given a house (fully paid) as a gift from Bonds.

Personally, in my lifetime I have had two best friends betray me.

The first was a guy whom I carried on my back up the proverbial mountain only to be (tremendously) let down when I needed his “best friendship” the most; the other “best friend” disappointment was a little more dramatic…
my Chinese brother like best friend in Shanghai stole more than 1+ million dollars in cash plus a multi-million dollar business from me…

Back in the days of “sir and ma’am” best friends didn’t betray each other like they do today.

Greg Anderson’s loyalty to Bonds is very impressive and at the same time inspiring to think about.

Irrespective of whether you like Bonds or not – reflect on what best friendship means to you…

  1. i have to respectfully disagree with you on your comments about the tricky relationship shared between barry bonds and greg anderson. while, yes, they are childhood friends, i don’t think that loyalty nor friendship is entirely the reason that anderson refuses to testify. according to bonds, greg anderson, his personal trainer, told him that he was giving him flax seeds when in fact he was giving him steroids. if anyone truly believes that bonds was an innocent victim, then they are either naive or misguided. these two men knowingly used steroids to enhance bonds’ strength and performance and they then acted together to cover-up the scheme and hide the truth from the public. in my opinion, greg anderson is not a martyr for refusing to testify (and incriminate himself and his friend) about his activities to the grand jury. he, like bonds, are liars and therefore, in this instance, are partners in crime. anderson may be loyal, but he is being loyal to a shitty friend. if bonds was a true friend, he wouldn’t allow anderson to rot in jail. bonds should “man-up” and tell the truth about what happened and therby take anderson off the hook.
