McConaughey Offers His Support To Bonds

Troubled baseball icon BARRY BONDS has found an unlikely ally in actor MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY, who has written to his local newspaper to urge sports fans to stop bashing the star. San Francisco Giants hitter Bonds is chasing HANK AARON's home run record after equalling BABE RUTH's record at the weekend (20MAY06), but fans upset by claims he took steroids to boost his performance are refusing to cheer him on. And actor MCConaughey is so upset by the general lack of interest in Bonds' record chase, he wrote a letter to the Austin American-Statesman newspaper in protest. MCConaughey wrote, "(Steroids) or not, this man has more than the ability, but the talent, to be the greatest home run hitter in baseball history, and I think he is."
