    At first I didnt want him to break the record. Being raised within the "Dodger Family" I sure didnt want to see this achieved my a Giant. However, considering how Barry is reviled in the media I am glad that he set a new mark.

    The lack of recognition and respect given to Bonds by the commisioner's office just serves as another strike against the game. And they wonder why black youth in the inner-city have lost interest in baseball.

    Think about it. Bonds and Ken Griffey Jr. were raised in the game. Besides them, how many African-american players are even close to ending their careers with over 500 home runs.
