What would you do with the 756* ball?
Burn it? Blow it up? Drown it? Smother it? Impale it? All of the above at the same time? Yes, that means burning and drowning it at the same time.
But the problem is that we don't have the 756* ball. However, we can still decide what happens to it.
Thanks to Marc Ecko, who paid $752,467 for the ball and has been called an "idiot" by Barry Bonds himself, you have a choice. Ecko has opened a site (link provided at the end) where you get to choose what happens to the ball (descriptions taken from the site):
A. Bestow it: Give the ball to Cooperstown. The ball that broke Hank Aaron's career home run record belongs in the Hall of Fame.
B. Brand it: Burn an asterisk into the ball with a branding iron, adding a permanent footnote to the record. Then, send it to Cooperstown.
C. Banish it: Put the ball on a rocket ship and launch it into orbit, a moonshot for the ages. Out of sight, out of mind.
So there are your three choices. Visit www.vote756.com/marcecko/ to have your say. Voting closes 11:59 EST on September 25.
By the way, I voted B. What's your choice?
