THE BABE AND THE BONDS

TODAY’S WORRY

I’m not a big baseball fan.  At least not any more.  Like so many other professional teams, it’s hard to find an allegience when the plalyers are with a team for one year and gone the next.  I think the last time I really cared was when the Mets were playing in the 1969 World Series.  But there is a baseball topic that is bothering me.  Should Barry Bonds receive all the honors for his impending breaking of Babe Ruth’s homerun record?  It seems pretty clear that he has taken performance enhancement drugs.  Doesn’t that taint his accomplishment?  Doesn’t that make him a really poor role model?  Baseball is a game of statistics, I think when Bonds’ name goes in the record books, it should at least have an asterisk.
