Bonds! Yeah!

    Watched a big portion of Bonds on Bonds, and then ESPN followed that up with clips of historic homers (1st, 100, 200, etc.). Lots of clips from Three Rivers, Candlestick and other older parks.


    When Bonds breaks the record, ESPN Classic should show every game that featured a Bonds home run. That would kick ass.

    Normally I'm pretty good at detecting sarcasm. Why do I fear this might be real?

    It's very real.
  5. Don't think they won't.

    I love baseball more than anybody, and have always admired Bonds as a player even before he was a science experiement.

    But Fucking A. They've saturated Bonds coverage to the point of comedy.

    I'd like to see ESPN classic put up Bonds' baseball card picture for each year.

    Well, I bet USA Today will run a list of every one of his home runs, when and where it was hit and who was pitching.

    They did that a few years ago. I seem to remember Greg Maddux's name showing up a few times, and the Phillies seemed to be frequent victims when Bonds was still with the Pirates.

    They did that sorta thing when Nolan Ryan was closing in on his 5,000th strikeout. And a list of most victimized. Lists up the wazoo. That's real journalism.

    Might not be hard-core journalism, but those lists are interesting to a lot of readers. And that's kind of the point of putting out a paper.

    They don't call it McPaper for nothing.
