Why are we so obsessed with Barry Bonds and his homerun?
We have partial tickets - they were for the next night. But I'm not obsessed with Barry Bonds. I think people like to see special things in their life. That record wasn't broken for 30 years so people feel happy for Barry Bonds. Some people might feel it was tainted because of the steriods.
I guess we need to hear something good that's going on, besides the war, the bridge collapsing, all the other things. We need to hear about happy moments. It was a day to smile about something.

A lot of people are big fans of baseball and he just broke the homerun record so it's really big for baseball fans. I saw it on TV live. I watched four games to see it happen.

Because there's not any other thing going on this summer. I watched the record broken in 1976. I like baseball. I love the A's even though they're not going anywhere. Whether Barry Bonds was on steroids or not, he broke the record after 30 years.
Because the media doesn't have anything else to talk about. Barry Bonds is only getting all the attention because he broke the record. Otherwise no one would care about his steroid use.
