Pure Class

"Things just aren't the same anymore. Young people don't respect their elders and all they do is roam free with no thoughts about anyone else but themselves."

Everyone can relate to this because everyone has at least once in their lives heard this from someone older than them. Well, as a fairly young guy, in my mid-20's, I kind of see where older people come from. I walk around and see teenagers roaming the streets tossing garbage everywhere and anywhere, writing all over walls, but I guess that is the process of growing up.

Anyways, back to the main topic. As many sports fans know there is a problem in MLB and steroids. Hank Aaron, the former HR king was quoted as saying, "Barry has the record, and I don't think anybody can change that." To kind of summarize the article I read. Mr. Aaron, everyone should call him that, came out and said that the record and title of the HR King belongs to Barry Bonds. No matter what happened with him and the steroids fiasco, the title belongs to Bonds, a man who has hit 762 career home runs.

Just by coming out and saying this makes me feel that it should be time that MLB, the players, the fans, and everyone should take a step forward and away from the steroid issue. We should focus on the game and make sure that our mistakes in the past are not repeated again in the future. It feels Mr. Aaron is trying to start the movement towards a new era of baseball, a time where baseball is the focalpoint where everything is decided on the field where dreams come true.

Mr. Hank Aaron, is what baseball players and for a matter of fact, what everyone should follow with respect to how to speak and be as a human being. He is what some might say made of pure class. He is the man who hit 755 home runs and held the title of HR King for what seemed to be a lifetime.

I hope more people will follow in the footsteps of Mr. Aaron and try to be made of pure class.
