    Yea but no one will ever forget about The Babe. He could do so much more i mean he could even pitch. I doubt that someday we will be eating a Barry Bonds candy bar...

    They were saying they didn't want him to break the home run record because hes black. Correct me if im wrong but wasn't Hank Aaron a black man?

    Yes, and they didn't want Hank Aaron to break the record either because he was black. He had death threats. The point is, some part of the great reviling of Bonds is probably racial in nature. It doesn't mean he's right or that he didn't take steroids. It doesn't mean he's a nice guy. It just means race is still an issue in America.

    Quick hijack:

    I was going to be a smart guy and say that the candy bar was really named after Grover Cleveland's daughter, but further investigation revealed that I would probably have been wrong and MNFan's reference is probably accurate.

    Good, persuasive argument by Snopes, and a nice lookback in history. Now, do you suppose we could get away with manufacturing the Mikey Jordan candy bar?

    I dunno, but do you think that this controversy will hurt the bonds market?

    (guess it wasn't just a quick hijack)

    At this point, I would stick to stocks (e.g. Curtiss), and avoid investment in bonds.
