    Sometimes, things happen that people don't want to see. What do you think Jackie Robinson was?
    But that's how life is, so when it happens, get over it.

    I wonder how Bonds feels about the decision passed down Wednesday by the federal appeals court. Nervous? Scared? Uncaring?

    I should think the last, seeing how he reacts, or more like how he doesn't, to this whole ordeal. Well, at least to the public.

    Ah, is it the Bonds curse to remain a Giant? Or is it his salvation?

    Yes, he's not young anymore and with those surgeries on the knees, he's not as fast on left field either. At least he was lucky to get re-signed for the $16 mil.

    But, Bonds is the Giants! What are the Giants without its Bonds? We need Bonds to Boo him when he comes to play in L.A. Ah, the great rivalry.

    Bonds is such a great character in the world of baseball. From the skinny young guy who played with the Pirates to the Big Juiced Player we now know him as. What if there wasn't a Bonds? It will all just be plain. He brings an essence to the game with his mere presence!

    Bonds was meant to retire as a Giant! It's his destiny! With another team he would be in the shadows. The Bay area needs him. Yes, the SF fans jeer and cheer him , but overall they love him.

    He brought so much to SF. What more can they ask for?

    I'm thinking you're being sarcastic, but sarcastic optimism is somewhat better than none at all. Since you're a Dodger fan, you wouldn't know how Giants fans treat him, I should think. So let me tell you: for some odd reason, they love him. Never a boo from a loyal SFer, ever, at AT&T Park. That should clear things up.

    The rivalry will always live on, long past when Barry retires.

    He had one outstanding season, and mostly mediocre ones. And hes an average fielder with the reputation of a great fielder because of one play (though admittedly it was a spectacular play)... yeah, I think that deal will be regretted pretty early on.

    Amen to that. I mean, it was, if possible, better in the golden ages of baseball, the 50's or something like that. Now it's more like an unreciprocated hatred for the bums and their fans, as I've heard and witnessed. But I must admit, some of the best moments of this rivalry have come from Bonds.

    Of course they have. Once he retires, we'll either A) find somebody else on the team to boo the loudest or B) boo the whole damn team extremely loud. :)
