    Vote756.com - Give Bonds his justice, whatever that is

    I'm sure some of you have heard of this already. Mark Ecko, owner of the Ecko fashion company, bought the infamous #756 homerun ball of Barry Bonds for a little over $750,000. Now he wants to get rid of it and let the world decide what happens to the ball.

    Your options are:

    A. Send the ball to Cooperstown unscathed.

    B. Send the ball to Cooperstown, but with an asterisk branded on it.

    C. Send the ball into outer space; banishing it from the world forever.

    How will you choose?

    D. I'm trying as hard as I can, but I really can't find it in me to care about Barry Bonds any less than I currently do.

    Brand it and display it for all to see. You never know - character, integrity, and a sense of shame may come back into fashion someday.

    7 votes - None to send the ball to Cooperstown without asterisk. I kind of get the feeling that there's no chance this ball is going to be virgin for much longer. It seems everyone outside of San Fran hates Bonds. The vote might as well have only two options, or other more disrespectable options.

    Then hit himself with the baseball bat for spending a three quarters of a million dollars on a ball of twine with a leather casing...

    I would vote for number 1. Simply because I don't believe ANY pro athlete is honorable, in fact sports by its very nature breeds the opposite. By explicitly defining that lie, I say brand it and make it what it truely represents...doped up pro sports

    and heck no offense to bonds, hes a great doped up athlete. Its just to bad others were smart enough not to wear there drug quite as obviously as bonds does.

    That and I hate baseball....

    How are all pro athletes dishonorable? Saying every athlete dopes?

    He's hated in SF too. He wants to play another season. Let see if the Giants are stupid enough to pay him another 18 mil to play 1/4 of a season.

    You left out the most pertinent option.

    Who cares? It's only baseball.
    The search for inner peace continues...
