First, I'm not a baseball fan - I am however a sports fan. And this is bigger than just a baseball achievement - it's a sports milestone.
So, I really don't "celebrate" guys that are in the baseball HOF. And...why does it matter? All I keep seeing/reading from the guys in the Bonds corner is the diverting of the topic at hand. We're talking about Barry Bond here - not Ruth or any of these other guys. It appears I made a silly comparison toward Rose and I apologize for that. The fact still remains baseball is very inconsistent with how they handle their problem children.
This should have been a huge deal for the sport - bigger than the Sosa/McGwuire home run race was. And even not being a fan, I was into it hardcore, because it was so exciting (then fastforward to learning these two likely juiced up, corked bats, etc).
Sadly, Barry cheated his way to this accomplishment*, making something very special into something very hollow and tainted.
