And the hits just keep on coming.
Let me just say, the unseemly ESPN coverage, what with the instant call-ins from different sportswriters and media jackoffs telling us how horrible it is, how tainted it is, how fans are disappointed…. What a joke. I will never link to Lupica again, regardless of what he writes about.
The fans have let us know what they think. They cheered. They would have cheered more if the sports media hadn’t spent the last four years telling them they shouldn’t.
By the way, here’s what dignity and class sound like:
“I would like to offer my congratulations to Barry Bonds on becoming baseball’s career home run leader. It is a great accomplishment which required skill, longevity and determination.
Throughout the past century, the home run has held a special place in baseball, and I have been privileged to hold this record for 33 of those years. I move over now and offer my best wishes to Barry and his family on this historic achievement.
My hope today, as it was on that April evening in 1974, is that the achievement of this record will inspire others to chase their own dreams.”
