Please listen to Hank

I'm not sure which depresses me more - that Hank Aaron feels the need to remind everyone that Barry Bonds is the home run king (and that Hank himself is just fine with that), or that there's a bunch of idiots like this one who don't care and want to commit violence to the record books anyway in order to satisfy their perverse sense of justice or something. The fact that one of these people is MLB Commissioner Beelzebud Selig, who of course bears no responsibility whatsoever for the whole steroids thing, just makes it that much worse. I don't even know what to say about this stuff any more. Between the hysteria over steroids and the annual ignorance-fest known as the Hall of Fame voting, it seems like the only way I can continue to enjoy the game of baseball is to strictly limit my exposure to what's spoken and written about it. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go bang my head against a wall.

It is really sad what has happened to baseball. I am a huge fan, and after hearing about all this A-Rod stuff, I feel scared for the game. I want to say, f-it, they all were doped up. But I also know, baseball is 70 percent brain and 30 percent brawn, which to me, allows me to continue watching the game, whether or not they doped up or not. At the end of the day, strength is not what tells you that Randy Johnson's 2-1 pitch will by his outside slider,(however, strength does allow you to say, but if it isn't, I know I can get it up and turn on his fastball, if I guess wrong). I love the game so much, that I am willing to look past all the crap that is going on. The only problem is, the media isn't, and that crap bugs the hell out of me!
