AND ON A 3-2 PITCH!! (Sans a few foul balls).

You know the lady of leisure had to come here to see what you said about it. I'm also glad that you made it, beffitingly so, the only post of the day.

I've played this on the yahoo site at least five times (I was not at home when it happened)

Regardless to the BALCO drama, the 'cream and the clear', there are certain things that you see, and you remember, and you never forget. . .

You remember that fade away jumper that Michael Jordan made in the #23, to win the championship, so to speak, in Utah, which was also his last time in a Bulls Jersey (keep me honest).

You remember 'The Shot' that Robert Horry made to bring the lakers hope, which eventually turned the tide and had them win the championship.

And you remember something like this. It was beautiful. It was beautiful for the fans, it was beautiful for his family (including his dad) and it was a beautiful thing to watch. Even the pitcher (if you notice at that time, for some reason, did not turn around to see the ball sail through the center), said that "Giving it up to Barry Bonds is nothing to be ashamed of".

It really was a great experience. Wish I had seen it live, but the beauty of ESPN and the 'innernet' allowed me to experience it virtually.

It was great.
