We knew Babe Ruth. We loved Babe Ruth. You, sir, are no Babe Ruth.

From Drudge:

Bonds Passes Babe With Home Run No. 715

Well, congratulations are in order, of course. It is an enormous accomplishment.


When it comes time to make a movie about Bonds' life- and that time will come- who will play Bonds? Some big muscly dark skinned action hero type, possibly this guy.

When they made a movie about The Babe's life, whom did they ask to play him? That's right. Possibly the most underrated actor of our generation, Mr. John Goodman.

Looks pretty good, doesn't he? Let's compare.

Yep. Pretty close. Good old fat shlubb of a King Ralph John Goodman played Mister Cigar Chomping Hot Dog Eating Alchaholic Womanizer Babe Ruth.

If they had put Ruth on Atkin's and stuck him with a personal trainer, how many homers would he have hit?

I think there's only one thing left to say.

End sport-related rant. Political snarkiness resumes.
