Barry Bonds is one lucky guy, and if he’s still sitting on all that money like I expect he is, then I hope he’s paid Greg Anderson tremendously.

The Associated Press is reporting that a federal appeals court in San Francisco has upheld  Bond’s obstruction of justice conviction.

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Friday that Bonds’ response to a question about whether his trainer, Greg Anderson, had ever given him any self-injectable substances was evasive and misleading.

Bonds gave the answer during testimony before a grand jury in December 2003. The grand jury was investigating performance enhancing drug use and sales among elite athletes.

Bonds is now facing 30-days’ home confinement as well as two years of probation, 250 hours of community service and a $4,000 fine.

His attorneys had argued that Bonds’ rambling and studdering while trying to  answer a question was not a crime.
