Look Mom! No 'Roids!

As much as I hate Barry Bonds for tainting the integrity of baseball and for disrespecting the Justice system, it was pretty cool to see him hit his 710th homerun last night.

It wasn't a "splash hit" and did somewhat flail over the fence. But, I thought it really impressive to see the guy drive a pitch to the opposite field with two jello knees and a splintered elbow. Even without the benefit of steroids anymore, he's still strong as hell.

Having said that, it will be a sad day when he surpasses Ruth in the record books. I only hope that he reaches the mark away from the friendly confines of AT&T Park. Arrogance begets arrogance and he rightly deserves the ire of fans on the road when it happens. A fitting tribute, in my humble opinion, for bringing HGH taint to the legitimate steak-and-cigar produced records.
