Barry Bonds Homerun Pool

Well, the baseball season is in full swing, and we thought we'd make things fun by starting a "When Will Barry Bonds Break Hank Aaron's All-Time Homerun Record" (or as I like to call it, WWBBBHAATHR) contest.

The rules are pretty simple. Leave us a comment on here telling us on what day you think Barry Bonds will BREAK Hank Aaron's all-time homerun record of 755 homeruns. Remember, this is NOT when he will tie the record, but when he will break it. Barry currently has 734 homeruns in the bank, so that means he'll need 22 more to pass ole' Hank. And with that information, I wish all of you good luck.

The winner of the contest will be the person who is CLOSEST to the day, either over or under. The prize? You'll get an autographed softball from your two favorite sports bloggers, Henry and Trevor, of course!

You can see on the right where Trevor and I think Bonds will perform the feat:

Henry: August 15th (away game at Atlanta, the site of Aaron's record breaker)
Trevor: August 2nd (away game at Los Angeles Dodgers)

The deadline to submit your picks is April 8th by the start of the Red Sox/Rangers game on ESPN.

A deadline of August 8 seems like it might be a little late... just a thought. It is my love of competition, not my burning desire to own something you two scribbled on (illegible, of course, thinking you're rock stars), that has me playing your little game by choosing:

September 2nd (away game at Washington, a great day in general, really)

Ok, the Barry hater in me says that he'll tie the record on July 24 against the Braves, but in his next AB he gets drilled in the knee and goes down for the season. Since that's highly unlikely though, I'll go with July 26 at home against ATL to break the record.

I'm going to say Aug. 20th simply because it's our first day of class next semester. And because it'll cut henry off.

September 8, at home, vs. the dodgers, on tv.

Ok, September 17th in Arizona.

Are you looking for sports? Or maybe just the Red Sox? That team that is in the American League East? That same team that is the rival of the New York Yankees? Maybe you are looking for sports on the rox? Or is it Sports on the Rocks? You may be looking for Sports Drinks. Henry and Trevor read the Boston GlobeBoston Globe. They also read ESPN. If you are also looking for Mississippi State University sports, then you are in the right place too. Dirt Dawgs? Diamond Dawgs? Dawgs in general? You can Google the hell out of this site if you want.
