News $55 Million Federal Investigation Successfully Forces Barry Bonds to Watch TV at Home for 30 Days
"A lot of hard work went into this," said lead investigator Jeff Novitzky. "But getting those 30 days of house arrest was completely worth all of the time and resources we used. I just wish the judge would have suspended Bonds' Netflix subscription for those 30 days. Then he would have really suffered."
In addition to having to stay at his 15,000-square feet, 2-acre Beverly Hills estate for 30 days, Bonds also received two years of probation and 250 hours of community service although the entire sentence is delayed for appeal, which won't be heard for at least a year.
"I'm a competitor and I don't like admitting defeat, but they got me good," said Bonds after his sentencing. "For the next year or so, I have the prospect of possibly having to hang out at home at some point for 30 days hanging over me. It's going to spoil every movie I watch until then, because I'll be wondering if I should have waited to watch it until my house arrest."
The 12 fans in the stands witnessed a great baseball moment.

He needed much more attention as a child.
Yeah, it's probably time for him to retire now.
"We were losing by a run. It was a crucial point in the game. I wasn't going to let him get on base easy," said Huff. "Unfortunately, my leg bent over as I was blocking the bag and snapped."
Huff is the second Giants starter to go down for the season to injury due to playing aggressive defense. Catcher Buster Posey fractured his leg and strained ankle ligaments blocking the plate on Wednesday night.
"I felt it was a clean play," said Morrison. "I was jogging down the line after my hit fell in and all of a sudden I see Huff standing there. I stopped and said: 'What are you doing? Move!' And he was like: 'No. I'm blocking the bag.' And I said: 'You can't do that.' And he said: 'I'm doing it.' So I just took a few steps back, ran full speed, lowered my shoulder and took him out."
Giants manager Bruce Bochy also agreed the play wasn't dirty, but said that baseball needs to adopt rules protecting fielders. When told there is already a rule prohibiting fielders from blocking bases, Bochy said: "Oh. I need to remember to tell my guys about that."
