Today’s View From the Bull Pen
St Patty's Day
To celebrate the return of Patrick Roy, I thought I'd post my three favorite and most requested Roy cartoons from my days at the Rocky Mountain News. I'm excited he's back and I know you guys are too. So here's to St Patty. I'll raise a pint o' Guinness to that!
Have a great a safe memorial day weekend!

I don’t think anyone is happy or satisfied with last weeks outcome in the Barry Bonds case, most of all, the prosecution. They came away with an obstruction verdict but not much else in the other 3 perjury charges. That said I think it’s time wasting huge amounts of money and resources to pursue to try and prove if Bonds took Steroids or not. I think we pretty much know the answer anyway. The only way that Baseball can move forward and heal itself from the tainted era of Steroids is to accept it, and move on. The damage has been done. Let the Bonds case come to a close. It’s time.
You all are the absolute best readers in the whole world. Thanks to each and everyone of you for viewing the great video by Chris Hampson and Annalisa Andrews. I know they appreciated your comments as did I. They are both huge talents with bright futures ahead of them.
I should have some local content on here this week with the NBA playoffs and the Rockies playing lights out. So hold tight and toon in for more.
And so the story goes…Barry Bonds always wanted a World Series. And I always wanted to draw a cartoon about it. So in this season of newbies in the Series, the Rangers vs. the Giants, I think it’s appropriate for this slightly irreverent cartoon.
What do you think about the Series. Part of me is pulling for the Rangers and part of me is rooting for the Giants because of my old pal Phil Frank, who drew hundreds of cartoons featuring his bears characters rooting for the Giants in his comic strip Farley that he did for the San Francisco Chronicle. So I think I’ll go that direction. C’mon Giants! Win one for Alphonse and Farley!
Repulsive My one word that sums up Mark McGwire and the entire era of steroids in baseball. I felt like this needed a stark strong statement kind of cartoon. But, frankly, I really tired of drawing them. Can't baseball just have a come-out-of-the-closet day and get it over with already. Hmmm. Sounds like a cartoon idea. I'm really interested to hear your feedback on this topic. So jump right in. Oh but before you do...Thanks to everyone who took time to answer my recent poll. I know it was long but it helps me to see ways to improve the site. " title="Mark the Liar McGwire" />

Question: Are you as tired of the constant focus on steroids in baseball as I am? If I don’t draw another cartoon about it all, I’m more than fine. Admittedly I am conflicted. It makes for good cartoon material. On the other hand I relate to the guy in the chair in this cartoon. Do you feel the same way? Let me know by offering your comments.
I attended Andrew Hudson’s Reinvent Event yesterday. It was kind of a Networking program. I’ll be telling you more about it soon here on the blog. Stay tooned.
Dumb, Dumber, Dumbest
It never ceases to amaze me how dumb athletes can be. It’s actually more arrogance than any thing else. What part of “no performance enhancing drugs don’t they understand”? Obviously, all of it. For more click below…
Barry Bonds has been a frequent topic for me through the years. This cartoon inspired by a famous photo featuring Babe Ruth is one of my favorite images. I think it about summed up the Bonds fiasco with no words, just letting the picture do all the talking. Maybe even a thousand words worth.
