What’s that they say about wisdom from the mouths of babes?
This morning National Public Radio interviewed several kids to get their thoughts on Barry “The Asterisk” Bonds, whose assault on The Sacred Record was staved off last night by heroic rookie pitcher John Lannan.
One ten-year old boy put it this way:
“It’s like Aaron painted a masterpiece, and Bonds is kind of painting over it.”
How eloquent, and how sad. But don’t worry, kid. If all goes well, around the time you’re a junior in high school, the A-Rod in Waiting will have taken the Grail away from this ogre. Meanwhile, you can train to replace Bob Costas.
