Barry Bonds Surpasses Hank Aaron

Thanks be that Barry Bonds didn’t go through a drought like last week. If he had, he might not have hit his 756th home run untill next week when San Francisco would have been here, in Atlanta, home of Hank Aaron, and previous holder of the Career Home Run record. That would have depressed me. Especially because Hank Aaron beat the previous record here, at Fulton County Stadium. The stadium is gone, but the wall section where his ball went over exists, still.

Do I care that Barry Bonds probably did steroids? Yes. Do I think it matters? No. The culture in baseball has allowed it to happen, so it boils down to an institutional fault. What this means is that the next time the record is broken, it will be much more exciting.
