    Boo or Cheer Bonds???

    Should Barry Bonds happen to break Hank Aarons home run record at GABP and you happen to be in the stands, what will your reaction be???

    I boo Bonds loudly every time he comes to the plate, regardless of what the result.

    Do you really need a poll for this? Who in his or her right mind who rightly considers him or herself a Cincinnati Reds fan would do anything other than boo lustily every time Barry Bonds comes up to bat?

    I chose the sit on my hands and yawn. Mainly because I think I'd be more dissapointed than mad enough to boo him for it.

    That's a good explanation, Humn.

    I'd act like a Cubs fan in another teams park.

    If I'm the one who catches the ball, I'd be cheering very loudly.

    I have been all Bonds-ed out. Tired of the guy. I see absolutely no reason in my wasting any time or energy in booing the guy when I can be cheering for the Reds instead.

    Out of respect to the game and its great records I would cheer for any individual who broke a record whether they were a Red or not. Had I been at Riverfront when Aaron tied Ruths record in April of 1974 I would have stood and politely cheered out of respect to the great accomplishment I just witnessed. But with Bonds its a different story, his actions have tarnished the game and I cant begin to cheer for anything a guy like that does.

    I know this is bad to say but... I would boo him, but I would like to at least witness him passing Hank. Just for historic part of it.

    Throw a syringe at him should have been an option.

    Where was the "throwing rocks" option?

    Imagine how surreal it would be if not a person in the stands made a peep.

    This to me has nothing to do with him being on the opposing team. If any other player did it, that was innocent of being a complete jerk and taking steroids, I would cheer....even if it were Sir Albert the Great Prince Poo Holes.
