What to make of Barry.....

Posted at 12:21 PM on May 30, 2006 by David Zingler (1 Comments)

Barry passed the Babe over the weekend...yawn...and I am still trying to figure out what to make of it. I’d like to pretend it didn’t happen, but like with the George W. Bush presidency, reality’s cold hand keeps slapping me in the face.

I could take the Stuart Scott jock-sniffing approach and gush about it. The ESPN anchor even brought his kids into the mix, calling the moment a cross-generational “I remember where I was” event. Poor Stuart, you get the feeling he has no idea how foolish that sounded.

There’s always the “high horse” option where I could ran and rave about what a travesty the whole thing is and how it’s “disgraced the game”, but that’s a little too self-righteous for me and, let’s face it, this isn’t really that important.

I guess the best thing is to accept it. For the foreseeable future, the all-time homerun list will look like this:

1. Hank Aaron
2. Barry Bonds
3. Babe Ruth

And that’s just the way it is...

how about it hasn't disgraced the game half as much as derrick turnbow? rumored steroid use is nothing like proven steroid use.
