Barry Bonds Excited To Go To Jail Immediately

So says ESPN, reporting that Giants bedrock Barry Bonds wants to serve his 30-day jail term from obstructing justice while knowingly and illegally taking steroids:

SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds says he wants to immediately start serving his sentence after a federal appeals court upheld his obstruction-of-justice conviction.

The former Giants slugger says in a statement on his website that he's disappointed with Friday's ruling. But he told his attorneys he wants to immediately begin serving his sentence of 30 days of house arrest and two years of probation.

Bonds says he still intends to seek further judicial review "of the important legal issues presented by the appeal."

"This has been a long and difficult chapter in my life and I look forward to moving beyond it once I have fulfilled the penalties ordered by the court," Bonds said.

And with that statement, Barry Bonds took his swollen cranium and shrunken testicles, and walked back into AT&T Park. Or so I can only assume.
