This is amazing (at least I thought it was).

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/quickie

Forget Barry Bonds: The week's real star is superfan Larry Ellison.

He caught HR No. 661 last night -- to go with No. 660 he caught on Monday. Not only should he keep the 661 ball (as Barry himself suggested), Ellison might want to start playing the lottery.

But it gets better: After graciously giving No. 660 to Bonds on Monday, he was given six seats behind home plate for Tuesday's game, which he promptly gave away to family, while he returned to his kayak in McCovey Cove. Don't devalue his 660 gesture by calling his 661 fortune "luck."

Karma, friends: It's a boomerang, just like that freaky coffeehouse barista's tip jar proclaims. I'm the first to laugh at "curse" talk, but Ellison's 660 give-back earned some serious karmic payback.

What's the larger lesson here? Do the cool, neighborly thing and you'll be rewarded. Maybe not as immediately and ridiculously as Ellison, but his model is one worth following.

This has the potential to launch the kayak industry into the 22nd Century.

The amazing part of the story that I heard about today is that he was offered tickets for Tuesday night's game behind home plate, but chose instead to go back out in the kayak.

Good decision.

Good for his wallet, sure, but those seats behind home plate are CHERRY. A buddy of mine who is now umpiring in the Minors knew an ump that was working a Cubs-Giants game the first season PacBell was open. We were about 15-20 rows up, simply incredible. Not that that offer probably doesn't still stand.

In the context of baseball, the use of drugs hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, the use of alcohol hurts only the player. In the context of baseball, womanizing hurts whom? Maybe the wife of the player? In the context of baseball, felonies are crimes against society, not against baseball. In the context of baseball, gambling is the only crime against baseball.

Gambling, in the context of baseball, is a capital offense and Rose has richly earned-- hell, he agreed to-- his death sentence. Let him hang.

I believe he got tickets for a later date, as well as some auto'd stuff from Barry Bo.

On the UPN affilate Friday morning, the talking head said, "It seems the same man got both of Barry Bonds's balls... He waited in a kayak in the... *baseballs*. Barry Bonds's baseballs."
