Bonds Surpasses Aaron with 756th Home Run

Barry Bonds hit his 756th home run tonight to break the record held by Hank Aaron since 1974. So much has been written about Bonds' HR pursuit and whether he deserved the accolades that comes with a record of this magnitude. Give the man his due. While its hard to accept that he could have been smearing an unidentified "clear substance" on his body without knowing its purpose, he has yet to be found guilty of anything and until he is, the record and the respect that comes with it should be his.
