Bob Costas accurately characterized Bonds' march to the MLB career home run record as 'joyless.' I watched the game on TV where Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record in 1974, and I tried to watch Bonds break the record 33 years later. I fell asleep and missed it. I don't feel like I really missed anything.

I had a chance encounter with Bonds in a busy hotel coffee shop in Phoenix during the 2006 season. Bonds was having breakfast. Everyone knew who he was, but not one person approached him for an autograph, which spoke volumes. Had Aaron been in the coffee shop, I suspect he would have been mobbed.
