    I for one am tired of seeing a sullen looking Barry Bonds during this home run chase. I don't think he is enjoying it, even when he plays in San Francisco. Will he ever smile on the ball field again?

    Who the fuck cares?

    I do. With nothing proven, I want to see the guy enjoy his career. He didn't succumb to the dark side like Jason Giambi. Yet somehow, Giambi is looked upon as a hero when he's an admitted cheater.

    You must have seen a different Barry than me the past week or so. I haven't seen him as upbeat in a long time. I thought he really enjoyed being the unofficial host of the ASG, holding court with the other NL players in the clubhouse and throwing his party at Roe.

    It was a fostered smile, in my opinion.

    Who are you to determine if it was a fostered smile or a genuine smile? Do you personally know Mr. Bonds like you do everyone else on Earth?

    Jealousy will get you no where. I do know Barry well enough to put a good judgement on whether I feel he is enjoying this time in his career.

    I'm sure you do. I'm sure you do.

    Everyone just needs to nod and smile at this point.

    Were you there? Did you see the circumstances around it? Someone who WAS there said he seemed upbeat but that's not enough for you?

    Thank you, exactly. There's not a great athlete anywhere on earth over the last 30 years that our man boots doesn't know far better than anyone else here. He's my hero.
