    Not sure what to make of it, now that it's happened and he has the record.

    We wait another 33 years until the next one beats his record perhaps?

    I guess as I'm not really immersed into US sport in the way a native of that country would be, I don't really understand that reaction. To me he just seems like a bloke who hits a ball with a stick (a lot). Having said that, everytime his name comes up on the news, it always comes with the tag line "whose career has been dogged by accusations of drug taking".

    My sleep pattern won't change one bit. On one hand, it takes skill to hit a baseball. Steroids don't help with that. However, they can help you hit a ball farther. My opinion? I don't care all that much. I do like watching baseball on TV on occasion, though.

    The reaction is because the "drug taking" is referring to steroids. He didn't get the record, all the **** he's been pumping into his body to give him an unfair advantage has the record.

    Are steroids legal in baseball?

    While watching Tom Glavine's 300th win (im a huge Mets fan) the announcer said this..

    "Actually, the second batter Glavine has faced when he first started pitching in the majors was Barry Bonds.. and, he hit him!.. .. Then ontop of that, he picked him off first"

    me and my brother were laughing histerically..
