Kids, we hate to be there bearer of bad tidings here, but it's pretty clear right now that Barry Bonds is going to break Hank Aaron's home run record, and quite soon. After another homer last night, Bonds is now only 14 behind Aaron. It's happening, everyone. We're just going to have to be ready for it.

We hope we'll handle it better than this guy.

A [Georgia] Avenue couple were frightened when an apparently disgruntled and intoxicated sports fan broke into their home early Wednesday morning. They hid from him until police came after he threatened to kill them, using profanity, according to incident reports. Statesboro (Ga.) police said officers responded to the couple's call for help around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, and found William Benjamin Smith, 21, also of a Greenwood Avenue address, "inside the residence in the kitchen in an apparent intoxicated state."

According to police incident reports, Smith was yelling and said "Barry Bonds doesn't deserve to be the Home Run King."

We certainly hope Bonds' ascension to the throne of Home Run King does not an epidemic of sports fans drunkly wandering through houses they don't live in, mumbling about Bonds ... but it might!
