There was a time I proudly displayed a Barry Bond's poster on my dorm room wall in college. Barry was Baseball. He was the most complete baseball player in the league. He could run, play defense, hit for average and of course, hit for power. A true threat.
I am ashamed I bought into the Bonds hype. He is a fraud and a cheater. Not to mention a bad guy. I tore up that poster a long time ago, but I still can't take my eyes off the TV when he has bat in his hands.
On Sunday, he hit homer number 746 against the Rockies and I find myself buying into the Bonds hype again. I don't feel "right" in doing so, but it is the ultimate reality TV as he continues his chase of Hank Aaron and his hallowed record of 755 home runs. The topic is all over sports talk radio. Callers and hosts editorializing about the Giants slugger. Many say they won't be watching the day he hits 755 or 756. I'm calling your bluff.
You will be watching. So will I. But that doesn't mean I have to like what I see.
Until next time, keep living the dream.
