Ten years from now i hope that i can look back at Barry Bonds, and say you know he hated the Media, he probally used steroids, but he did the right thing. What is the right thing? He Retired at 754 Dingers. If your Barry Bonds the only way to make things "right" is to stop and be the man who could have broken the most famous record in sports. Hank Aaron once said " I'm hoping that someday some kid, black or white, hits more home runs then me and when he does, I'll be pulling for him." At the time I'm sure Aaron ment it. I hope he will tell people that he wasn't rooting for Bonds.
Unfortuanly in the world we live in today where any public figure has to "Sugar Coat" anything they say, He cannot say that. I hope though Ten years from now when the Home Run List hopefully looks like this 1.Hank Aaron 755 HR 2. Barry Bonds 754HR, that Hank Aaron can tell people, "Yes he stopped before 755 but, no I was not rooting for Barry Bonds to break my record because he is a cheater"
