He did it!
He did it: On Tuesday night, at home in San Francisco, Barry Bonds hit his 756th home run. Bonds has the title of home run king all to himself, ending Aaron's 33-year reign. For one spectacular moment, Barry Bonds and everybody cheering him could forget about the controversy surrounding his chase and appreciate the phenomenal feat.
Conspicuous in his absence was Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Bud Selig. Noteably absent, too, was Hammerin' Hank himself thought Aaron did send along a video congratulations played on AT&T Park's video screen immediately following the achievement. I'm sure Barry's family is enormously relieved that the deed is done and this circus in their lives can end. Of course, with a grand jury indictment expected next month, a whole new and far more grisley circus appears imminent.
