I think you're severely overestimating the "enjoy watching someone else destroy a baseball" market.
You should watch the homerun...it was a titanic shot, as was his splash-down last night.
Originally posted by wmatisticYeah can't believe they'd do this, but then again I can. Hating Bonds as I do I was thinking of what I would do if I caught it. I mean you'd be dumb to pass up the money, right? But I would hate knowing who got me that money.
Now obviously I don't know how much baseball means to you, but aren't you overdoing it a bit? It isn't like you are selling the weapon that was used to kill (fillinfamousperson) or anything like that.
Ofcourse, you can look at it from another p.o.v. as well. "Hey, F.U. Bonds. I am selling this thing for a lot of money to some moron who is stupid enough to believe that this piece of shit is worth something. And I am going to spend the money well, I am going to donate it to (good cause XYZ) "
As best as I remember: * You need to be retired five full seasons before you're HOF eligilbe. * Rose's last year was as a player/manager in 1985. * Rose was banned in 1989, into his fourth year of retirement.
