From CNN media file:

The only time I've hung out with Palmeiro is at a ball park (smug laugh)

Laugh it up Bonds... laugh it up!  You enjoy that?  Good!

I think we have other issues in this country a lot more serious, I think you guys [media] should direct your efforts to looking into that.

Bonds goes on to criticize the United States Congress and the reporters for not helping the Katrina victims.

I can go as long as God allows me to.  I don't have his phone number... I just pray like everybody else.

He probably has Satan's phone number.

As nice as I am, or try to be, you guys [the media] just make up worse things.

Such a nice guy... Too bad this story can't be in the SF Chronicle every day

Barry Bonds testified to a grand jury that he used a clear substance and a cream given to him by a trainer who was indicted in a steroid-distribution ring, but said he didn't know they were steroids, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday.

Bonds told a U.S. grand jury that he used undetectable steroids known as "the cream" and "the clear," which he received from personal trainer Greg Anderson during the 2003 season. According to Bonds, the trainer told him the substances were the nutritional supplement flaxseed oil and a pain-relieving balm for the player's arthritis.

According to a transcript of Bonds' Dec. 4, 2003, testimony reviewed by the Chronicle, prosecutors confronted the slugger with documents allegedly detailing the steroids he used -- "the cream," "the clear," human growth hormone, Depo-Testosterone, insulin and a drug for female infertility that can be used to mask steroid use.
