For an audio example of my thoughts on Barry, click here and navigate through from the pros until you see my name.
Last year this time was such a proud time personally in the context of baseball. I couldn’t help but to smile for Barry Bonds broke the career home run record set by the great Hank Aaron. My only regret was not documenting the moment with my children.
I’d texted a couple of writers with “Happy Barry Bonds Day” and rejoiced with others who were very familiar with the Bay. It didn’t bother me Bud Selig had the look of a cheap department store mannequin as Barry rounded the bases. The raucous applause of the Pacific Bell Park (now AT&T Park) faithful had to sting Bud just enough but I’m sure he thought to himself that it would all be over soon.
