Take a gander over towards BarryBonds.com and you’d expect to find a website filled with pictures, statistics, and an ironclad list of accomplishments by one of the greatest players in the current generation.
But you’d be wrong.
It’s nothing more than a simple, single page, dedicated to the current crop of G-men. And people wonder why (for the most part) Giant fans love this guy. Below is Barry’s message….
Congratulations to the 2010 World Series Champion San Francisco Giants!
There is no city that deserves this championship more and I congratulate Bill Neukom, the entire ownership group, Bochy and most of all the guys on the team that fought hard to bring that trophy home to the city of San Francisco. I also want to congratulate Mike Murphy who has spent over 50 years working tirelessly for the organization. Murph has witnessed so much Giants history and I am thrilled that he finally gets his San Francisco Giants World Series Championship.
I grew up watching my dad and godfather as Giants, lived out my dream playing in the same uniform in front of the best fans in the world and I just witnessed the Giants winning the World Series. I am ecstatic for the team, the city and all the fans – you truly deserve it.
