756*

So that player finally “set the record” the other night. Swell. Now SportsCenter can SHUT UP about it already! These last few weeks of sports programming have been unbearable.

I’d like to extend my congratulations to the all-time home run king: Way to go, Henry “Hammerin’ Hank” Aaron!

  1. Here’s hoping that player fades into oblivion. An op-ed in the NYT today argues that Sadaharu Oh from Japan is the real home run king. He hit 868. Take that, undesirable number one.

  2. I hate to dismiss Sadaharu Oh, but if you’re not playing baseball in America, you’re playing in the minor leagues. If one is good enough, they come to play for MLB. That being said, I’m sorry that I didn’t see 756 live! But alas…I hope A-Rod breaks it in about 8 years anyway.
