Barry In The Vast Scheme of Things

By Manifesto Joe

Bonds breaks Aaron's record.

I am reminded of a quote from George Bernard Shaw. "Who is this Baby Ruth, and what does he do, anyway?"

This from the Babe himself: "I’ll promise to go easier on drinking and to get to bed earlier, but not for you, fifty thousand dollars, or two hundred and fifty thousand dollars will I give up women. They’re too much fun."

They made sports heroes more interesting back then. Even Hank Aaron was just too much of a damn role model.
