Barry Bonds finally hit his 6th homerun of the season, tying Babe Ruth's career mark of 714. Hank Aaron still holds the all-time record of 755, so why celebrate someone tying for second place?
People who say we should be celebrating are simply looking for reasons to celebrate. And, I'm sorry, now that we have evidence that Mark "I'm not here to talk about the past" McGwire and Rafael "I have never used steroids. Period." Palmiero actually took performance enhancers, I can't trust any records since the advent of these drugs.
I hate that professional sports base so much of a person's living on athletic performance. This is what creates the pressure to use performance enhancers.
