    Bonds Ball Buyer Seeks Advice On Ball's Fate

    The buyer of Bonds' "756" ball has put up a web site asking the public to vote on what he should do with the ball. The choices are clever.

    Personally, I like the idea of blowing it up.

    The "good" vote will split between Brand and Banish.

    Bestow will sneak in for the win.

    RFS62, he already bought it for 3/4th's of a Million Dollars, I believe.

    I voted send it to outer space as I feel the Hall-of-Fame might display it with the Asterisk not being shown (against the wall or something).

    Although being sent to outer space might give Bonds the feeling of immortality as it drifts forever through space. It's mostly organic, so I imagine it would break up sooner or later.

    Brand it, for sure. This guys already rich as he owns like a shoe company or something.

    Branding it would be sweet, but then cooperstown wouldn't display it anyway

    Brand it everywhere, so an asterisk is visible no matter how the ball is displayed.

    Like it or not, it's a part of history now.

    I was looking for "give it to some kids who don't know any better so that they can play baseball with it."

    Inject it with a foreign substance so it balloons to three times its original size.

    Then it would be a softball.
