Brilliant Plan for What to Do With #756

Hip-hop mogul/fashion designer Marc Ecko bought Barry Bonds' record-breaking home run ball at auction last weekend for more than three-quarters of a million dollars. Now, with what amounts to a shrewd ad buy, he has put its fate in the public's hands by taking votes on his new website to determine whether to A.) Give the ball to the Hall of Fame, B.) Give it to the Hall of Fame after branding it with an asterisk, or C.) blast it into space.

As you can imagine, The Barry is none to pleased:
He's stupid. He's an idiot. He spent $750,000 on the ball and that's what he's doing with it? What he's doing is stupid.
He goes on:
All of those options don't weigh anything. In baseball, that number (756) stands.
Yes, Mr. Bonds, it does stand. And now it's a record that has been robbed of its meaning. And for that, B, or C, sounds pretty good to me (see links below). The Hall of Fame makes a humble and decent case, so perhaps "B" is the way to go.
