Klosterman on Bonds and His Freakish Head

Chuck Klosterman has an entertaining piece about Barry Bonds over on ESPN today, in which he writes of Bonds' impending vault over Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list: "His statistical destruction of Ruth is metaphoric, but not in a good way. It's an indictment of modernity, even for people who don't give a damn about the past or the present."

He also calls Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire "jovial manimals," and says that "Americans tend to be conspiracy theorists, but we're not particularly skeptical."
