This is a free country, and as such, I decided I didn’t want to watch the moment and all the coverage that ensued with Barry Bonds hitting No. 756. I covered the story fairly at work, leading with it for all broadcasts, as that was the right thing to do. But that doesn’t mean I had to watch any of it, nor view the phony congratulatory messages and speeches. I have my reasons. In fact, check out my entire post of abstinence from FanHouse.
Also at FanHouse, I noted that Barry hitting No. 756 was indicative of his entire “me first” attitude. Anyone else wonder why he came out of a close game in the 5th inning that his team wound up losing? Is that not him being selfish? Oh yeah, and the President, the same President Bush who might be pushing the indictment of Bonds, called Bonds to congratulate him.
Meanwhile, I’m just waiting for the feds to come knocking in the next month or so. Now that will be justice served.
