All Bonds, All the Time

Posted By on Thu, Jun 14, 2007 at 3:07 PM


The Associated Press reports that ESPN and Fox may try to broadcast more Giants’ games as Ol’ Moon Head approaches Hank Aaron’s all-time home run mark. What does this mean for the nation’s Barry apologists, Barry bashers, and Barry for-the-love-of-God-just-please-go-away hordes? Here are a few possibilities:

-- More riveting high-def shots of Barry stepping out of the batter’s box after a whiff, then pursing his lips like he just swallowed a mouthful of The Clear. Or was it The Cream?

-- More riveting high-def shots of Barry dropping his bat, unsheathing his elbow armor, and trotting to first base after drawing a walk, his ass bearing the oddly lumpy shape of someone who's lost the battle with incontinence.

-- More riveting high-def shots of Barry chasing after fly balls, looking like a drunken sorority pledge stumbling toward the crapper before that fifth of Jameson comes back up.

Color us excited. But we’re warning Fox right now: Pre-empt So You Think You Can Dance just to show Barry at the plate and we’re gonna kick Rupert Murdoch’s oddly lumpy ass. -- Martin Kuz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
