A Yahoo Sports Exclusive?

How very odd. All the same, they are taking credit for this, so they get it.

Josh Peter reports:

The FBI has targeted a defense attorney for leaking confidential grand jury information linking Barry Bonds and other world-class athletes to alleged steroid use, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

The defense attorney, Troy Ellerman, has been the subject of an FBI investigation, according to Larry McCormack, a former private investigator who worked on the BALCO federal steroids case and who said he was a co-tenant in an office with Ellerman in Sacramento, Calif., where they worked together on cases, at the time of the alleged leaks. Other sources have said they were interviewed by the FBI.

Yahoo includes a photo of Troy Ellerman. And I hate to generalize, but when your defense attorney looks like Garth Brooks' dumb cousin, you are in trouble.

Same rule applies when your coach looks like Garth Brooks on a Cheese Bender.

I just said that I don't want a defense attorny wearing a cowboy hat. If that works for you, Anonymous, more power to you.

But if he were my defense attorney, and he was leaking my case to journalists, I'm pretty sure I'd be pissed, and probably have a pretty righteous lawsuit to hand him.

But your bravery in speaking up, Anonymous, speaks for itself. Keep fighting the good fight, Anonymous. We are all rooting for you, Anonymous!

Now, now people we can agree to agree that Ellerman "looks" like a douchebag, that of course says nothing of his inner gold.
