The Fate of #756

Bonds Ball

Everyone has been in a big brouhaha over the fate of Barry Bonds’ 756th home run. Well after going to auction, it turns out that designer Marc Ecko bought the ball and opened a site to publicly decide the fate. Should it be shot into outer space forever? Send it to Cooperstown? Or send it to Cooperstown after branding the ball with a large asterisk on it. Wonder which won? I vote for an outer space voyage.

I feel that anything like this is stupid. Paying hundreds of thousands for a ball that just happen to be hit that day. “It is history” some will say. That is until someone hits 757 and then the ol’ 756 will become long forgotten. How about focusing on something that really matters like oil problems, the state of education, or me.

The results.
