A "Barry Bonds" Oscar?
« on: September 27, 2007, 04:18:23 pm »
The ball that Barry Bonds hit for his 756th home run was purchased by fashion designer Marc Ecko in an on-line auction. (Bonds as many know has been rumored to have used steroids during his career.)

Ecko put the ball's fate up to the fans in an internet poll:

- send it to the Baseball Hall of Fame unblemished.

- launch it into space.

- affix an asterisk to the ball (denoting that Bonds amazing record was tainted).

Let's pretend  the 2005 Oscar for best picture that had somehow become available and up for a similar vote...

They should launch it into space and let an extraterrestrial play with it.

Barry Bonds is a disappointment. He bores me. And so does that stupid ball.


Good question for a poll Bruce! It's nice to see you here!  :D  I'll sticky post this poll for a couple of days.

        Barry Bonds is a disgrace.  He deserves no special recognition, nor should one of his balls.

I have never heard of Barry Bond (his name is Barry, Barry Bond  :laugh:), therefore have no opinion about the ball matter.

Let's pretend  the 2005 Oscar for best picture that had somehow become available and up for a similar vote...

But I know what to do with an 2005 Oscar:

Neither of the above choices. Give it to Ang Lee with an engraving saying this prize has been decided to be given to him by the people who really matter: the moviegoing folks. Not some *#$+## (read insignificant) old men with too much money and too less candor.
