In Praise of Assholes

Good point.

Considering the culture we live in, one that embraces flaming assholes for their empty athletic achievements, it's only fitting we have Bonds on the cusp of breaking the most hallowed record in the history of the game -- one that is held by one of its greatest ambassadors and historical figures. Whereas baseball never deserved someone with the quiet dignity and professionalism of Henry Aaron, baseball deserves in spades everything that is Barry Bonds.
