HANK WON'T COME TO SEE BARRY, SO BARRY IS GOING TO WHERE HANK IS REMEMBERED! TWICE!
Yesterday, in Chicago, Barry Bonds whacked two homers while driving in six runs. Bonds now has 753 home runs. Aaron's record is 755. Hank Aaron began and ended his career in Milwaukee. Hank Aaron performed many of his heroics while playing in Atlanta where Aaron is an executive for the Braves.
In what can only be described as irony with a capital "I", Barry Bonds' next three games will be in Milwaukee. Tonight through Sunday. After those games, Bonds and the Giants will play four games against Atlanta, beginning Monday!
Let the games begin!
Yesterday, the Emmy nominations were announced. The Sopranos got a bunch of nominations as did two made-for-TV westerns, which from a personal note is encouraging, because I'm trying to produce a made-for-TV western, but that's another story.
I'm not going to mention all the nominees. Just the actors or shows I would like to see win.
Drama Series: My choice wasn't nominated, so I would nominate and then choose, "Brothers & Sisters".
Comedy Series: "Entourage".
