:-b The funny part is that he actually didn't know Aaron hit 600 homers. It isn't like he accidentally deleted Aaron's name and forgot to put it back in
Only Barry Bonds, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays and Sammy Sosa have hit over 600 home runs in their career. That’s all – four players. And now we are about to see a fifth, Ken Griffey, Jr needs but one more home run to join one of the most exclusive and prestigious clubs in all of sport.

Blatant Sarcasm? He counts Bonds...
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

best laugh of the day!! I'll never forget the name "Jeff Freedman" just in case he shows up writing somewhere else.

It’s be cool to tell someone you were able to see him hit No. 600, because, well, it just doesn’t happen all that often.


Did he even proofread :-?
