I can't watch Sportscenter, Baseball tonight or anyother nationwide sports telecast. How many more times can I hear from Willie Mays about something I could care less about. I think I'm going to throw up! :-t

Anything Bonds accomplishes will always have a huge asterisk next to it IMO

Let's move on to something that matters.

It really is frusterating, isnt it? I really dont care about Bonds all that much, or the Yankee/Boston rivalry for that matter. But the fact that those are the ONLY 2 stories ESPN and the rest are covering right now makes me not want to watch at all. Thats the beauty of the internet, I guess.

What's even worse is that we have to watch the games on ESPN. Sorry, but Giants games are generally very boring, why do we have to watch them every single game for just a few at-bats. I don't expect much from ESPN anyway, since they've adopted the hip-hop programming style. I don't like to hear rap music in the background of highlights, and I don't need to hear stupid premeditated jokes from the commentators, I don't even watch sportscenter anymore, can't stand it.
All my posts regard H2H (yahoo), I don't play Roto.

I would rather have seen them break in live for Shane Halter's first RBI of the year :-)

there are lots of moments in sports that get a little over hyped. The masters is now more emotional then my wedding was....


if you get sick of it...just turn the best damn sports show period....they are hardly ever on the same topic for more then a couple of minutes because Rosanne's Ex is hopped up on coke or has some serious ADD.

i also can't stand the amount of coverage bonds gets. I'm an astros fan and during those first three games on espn2 vs the giants i wanted to kill every announcer. YES BERMAN WE F'IN KNOW BONDS IS GOING FOR WILLIE MAYS RECORD. Yes, we know mays was sitting in the f'in dugout. we heard it the first time you said it.

im sick of all this bonds sh*t. no one cares

now that he finally caught mays i wonder if theyre going to show every giants game until he catches ruth

THEN DON'T WATCH IT! Stop complaining. If you can't understand how this is a big moment in sports, then just turn the damn tv off. I'd like to be able to tell my kid's that I saw one of the greatest hitters hit the big one that tied him with his godfather. Is a whole 1 minute really going to ruin your life? And people think Bonds is selfish......

I dont think this thread would be here if it were only a minute that we are talking about. To me, it seems like this story dominates 90% of ESPNs coverage. Im not really a selfish guy, but I want my baseball back.
