Why Is This Even A Story

May 29, 2007 |

I just read an article that stated Barry Bonds doesn’t know whether or not he’ll donate anything to the Hall of Fame while in his pursuit of Hank Aaron’s homerun record. And this is a real story?

Let’s back up for a second. Since Bonds has seriously threatened Aaron’s homerun record, there has been nothing but doubt surrounding whether or not MLB and fans would even acknowledge homerun number 756. In fact, Bud Selig has not committed to follow Bonds as he pursues Aaron, and Aaron has flat out stated that he will not be there.

With so much doubt surrounding this man, why does the baseball Hall of Fame even want Bonds to donate anything, anyway? All I’ve heard is how Bonds has destroyed the integrity of the game, and how the homerun record should stay in place regardless of what he does this year.

This is why this whole steroid thing is a big joke. Even now, baseball is looking to make a buck. No, we won’t acknowledge Barry Bonds and his accomplishments, which is certainly understandable, but we will use the bats, balls, cleats, and whatever we can use to make money off of this fiasco. More proof that professional sports is nothing about integrity, it’s about making a profit. It’s a business.
