Now we can get on with the rest of the season (except for anyone involved with the Dodgers, the new Stranded Runners King). I've hugged complete strangers (albeit, usually when I'm drunk) with more sincerity than how Bonds embraced his son. Made me sort of miss the king of the hugs... Mark McGwire.
Bonds began to show he's not a machine when tearing up at the mention of his father. But it didn't take away from how the rest of the team reacted - I've seen those guys get more excited for a sacrifice bunt.
All differences aside, I think Bonds will celebrate his record tonight in a fashion very similar to Big Mac.
