Bob Costas fires back at Barry Bonds

 Broadcaster Bob Costas has responded to the offensive comments Barry Bonds made about his height.

Bob Costas fires back at Barry Bonds A day after Barry Bonds called Bob Costas “little midget man who knows (nothing) about baseball,” the HBO broadcaster gave his response:

 “As anyone can plainly see, I’m 5-6½ and a strapping 150, and unlike some people, I came by all of it naturally," Bob Costats snapped back today.

 Barry Bonds made the comments about Costas' height on Wednesday, when he reviewed the interview of the BALCO chemist Patrick Arnold on the "Costas Now" show, where the chemists claimed that Bonds knew about the steroid called "the clear". Calling Bob Costas a "midget" immediately started an Internet frenzy to find out Bob Costas height 5-6½.

 “He’s under tremendous scrutiny and some pressure. It’s no big deal,” Costas said. “This is a consequence of doing your job, and I’ve never tried to do my job in any case with the intention of calling attention to myself. I think if people watch the program, they can judge for themselves.”

 According to NBC, when Barry Bonds was told that Bob Costas claimed he came by his physique naturally, Bonds responded, “How do you know?” before going on to say he didn’t care.

 Barry Bonds, who is about to beat Aaron's record, is under investigation for perjury, related to his testimony on the BALCO case.
