    I might have some goosebumps for a few seconds, as it is still fun to watch the man swing the bat. But after those few seconds I will absolutely "boooooooo"

    One more for Boo.

    However, I cheer everytime he socks a dinger because he's on my fantasy team and I drafted him in the last round (20th) while others were picking up shmoes like Chris Duffy and Reed Johnson.

    prior to his steriod days I always really liked the guy, but at this point there is no way I can root for a cheater. It is a sad day when the most cherished all time record in sports is obtained fraudulently.

    I wouldn't even call it the most cherished all-time record in baseball let alone sports.

    To me, Cal Ripken's ironman record is the most impressive.

    Who is going to steal 130 bases in a season again, or get 511 career wins?

    But I could agree, these babies today need their day of rest every couple games. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    I have to agree with this sentiment. Given only two choices of cheering and booing, I'm sure not cheering.

    I wasn't saying the all time homerun record is the most impressive of all records, but I do think it has a symbolic greatness. Babe Ruth for many years (and probably still now) is considered the greatest player of all time. His charisma rescued the sport from the Black Sox scandle and made it America's past time. Hank Aaron broke the record and it has social significance. It showed that there were African American players who were as great as any players at the game. He overcame death threats and was a source of great pride for a disadvantaged group and gave a concise example for all that in the sports world that integration allowed for all fans to see the greatest players. Now when Bonds break the record, I feel it will have negative social implication: it will show that chemicals and cheating can allow athletes to achieve what has never been achieved before. It certainly will not be a day I celebrate.
