Why I Love My Fellow Americans, Part 237

This is simply bee-yuuu-tee-full

NEW YORK (AP) — The ball Barry Bonds hit for his record-breaking 756th home run will be branded with an asterisk and sent to the Baseball Hall of Fame, its owner said Wednesday.
Fashion designer Marc Ecko, who bought the ball in an online auction, set up a Web site for fans to vote on the ball’s fate, and the decision to brand it won out over the other options, sending it to the museum unblemished or launching it into space.

    Ha! That news almost breaks through my indifference to anything having to do with Barry Bonds.

    I’m pretty sure I laughed out loud when I heard this on the radio this morning. Clever!

    A pity they didn’t stick a syringe in the ball before sending it.

    I voted for the asterisk.
    Though the shoot into space option was a bit tempting. 🙂

    Hahahahahaha. That’s awesome. Wonder if the Hall of Fame will actually have the cojones to put it on display with its asterisk exposed.

  7. Exposed asterisks have never stopped Bingley…
