Bonds Vote is Slightly Amusing for Baseball Fans

Last month Barry Bonds broke Hank Aaron's record of 755 home runs. After paying $752,467 for the record-breaking ball, fashion designer Mark Ecko is holding an online vote to determine the ball's fate. The options are:

(1) Send the ball to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

(2) Brand it with an asterisk and then send it to Cooperstown.

(3) Launch it into space to "banish it."

At the moment there are 3,225,550 votes (I voted for number 2).

Says Bonds of Ecko, "He's stupid. He's an idiot. He spent $750,000 on the ball and that's what he's doing with it? What he's doing is stupid."

But Ecko is apparently a humorist in addition to his fashion work. He offered to make Bonds a shirt which reads, "Marc Ecko paid $752,467 for my ball, and all I got was this 'stupid' T-shirt."

People who follow baseball probably care about this more than me. But I appreciate the humor.
