Yes, the family and I were there at Yankee Stadium in the hot humid air and saw Alex Rodriguez hit his 500th home run. I snapped these photos as he it out of the park. It made sitting on the Deegan Expressway forever worth it. The only downer on the day was the thought that ARod can walk away at the end of the season which would be a real shame. Anyway, here are my photos - enjoy them.
BTW, speaking of another "milestone" home run, I could care less about Barry Bonds. He took illegal steroids, he cheated, end of story. And, please don't give me that garbage that taking steroids wasn't illegal in baseball. That's just convenient. It is illegal to take steroids without a prescription in this country so he broke Federal Laws. Comparing that to throwing a spitball or putting a super pinky in your bat is the most ridiculous comparisons I've ever heard. It is not illegal in this country to throw a spitball. Bonds broke our country's laws and cheated - it is a tainted record.
