Here's Something You Don't See Everyday

Last night on the bus up in the Bronx, dude decked out in Bonds gear.

Go figure.

good for that guy, I say.

I still like the guy I saw a few years ago unapologetically rocking an OJ Simpson Bills jersey

Best roider in baseball history, hands down.

We lived in the Bay Area from '97-2000. Barry was just misunderstood...

Do you remember the one game in 2002 that Bonds played in OYS during inter-league play? I was there and can testify that he hit a screaming HR into the upper deck in right that was gaining altitude and speed as it crashed into the stands. The ball was like it was shot from a cannon.

One of the epic HR shots I've ever witnessed.

The shame of it is that he would have been a HOFer without the help. 500 stolen bases? You don't get that from 'roids.

If someone wore an Arod jersey on the Chicago Loop, would it not seem as strange, and commented on their local blog?

[2] There has never been any conclusive proof that steroids help baseball players perform better. Bonds the second or third best player in baseball history and the HR king. Period.

For some inexplicable reason, my Dad sent me a Bonds BP jersey one year, either for my birthday or Xmas. Now this is after I'm in my late 30s and have been a die-hard Yankee fan since I was 7 years old. I never figured out whether he was trying to fuck with me or was just being thoughtless. I have nothing against Bonds, and loved to watch him bat, but I just don't wear other teams colors. I wore it a few times, but I never felt right about it. I think it ended up at the Good Will.

[5] You sure there's no old photos of you in a New Jersey Generals t-shirt?

[8] Yo, I liked the Generals. Hershel Walker. I saw a few games. That's when the old man was work for the NJ Sports Authority. Specifically the Meadowlands Racetrack.
