I'm so sick of ESPN and Bonds

New, 11 comments

Bonds passed Babe Ruth today by hitting his 715th HR and ESPN's coverage makes me sick. ESPN has been promoting Bonds day after day relentlessly-even with all the steroid issues. I watch Baseball Tonight almost everyday and to listen to John Kruk go on and on about him is disgusting.

Being a Yankee fan I have my issues with Giambi and Sheffield, but Bonds breaking Ruth's record and the hooplah ESPN is participating in is nauseating. Bonds even had the nerve to thank God for this accomplishment. How about he thanks his chemist. On Baseball Tonight, Steve Phillips and the host had the good judgement to put it into perspective and say it was a tainted record, but Harold Reynolds back pedaled after he initially brought up the controversy and Kruk is just a complete horse's ass.
