Bonds finally hits 756.

It was inevitable.

San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds finally became the all-time home run king by hitting number 756 tonight against the Washington Nationals. For me, the only thing worse than Bonds breaking the record was the fact that ESPN decided to broadcast every single Giants game over the past couple of weeks.

After Bonds surpassed Hank Aaron on the all-time home run list, Aaron’s video congratulations was played on the center field scoreboard. I only wish there would have been a second televised message. Not from Aaron, but from ESPN saying “Thank you, San Francisco Giants. We now return you to your regularly scheduled irrelevance.”
