    That would be a nice head to go with a photo of him pointing up right after he hit the thing.

    Said this earlier, but I think we are going with "The New King" in gigantic type with 756 shadowed somewhere behind Barry.

    Barry's World doesn't mean shit in the historic perspective of all this.

    I notice Yahoo! Sports removed its asterisk from their big 756.

    Perhaps someone there got a twinge of journalistic ethics? Or perhaps I'm confusing them with ESPN?

    And Hustle, the headline we went with on 1A for our columnist's take was "Bonds stands alone," with a subhead that said "Unlike Aaron, new home run king solitary, tragic figure." Of course, that combo makes more sense if you know the context of the column.
