Barry Bonds doesn’t care much about his national reputation, especially with the media, but there’s no denying he’s always been grateful to his city. Last week, Mayor Newsom awarded Bonds the (a?) key to the city, and Bonds gave a really nice speech at Justin Herman Plaza, acknowledging everyone from Omar Vizquel to the hopefully-inspired children of San Francisco. It was just a really humanizing, heartwarming–dare we say sweet?–moment from him.
Also, worst fireworks show ever. And an awful lot of confetti.
