Forgiving Barry Becomes The Sultan Of Suicide

From the AP :

“My life is in shambles. It is crazy,” Barry Bonds said Monday in an interview with The Associated Press. “It couldn’t get any crazier. I’m just trying to stay sane.”

Then, clearly joking, he went for shock value:

“Go to the Empire State Building and jump off, commit suicide and people can say, ‘Barry Bonds is finally dead.’ Except for in San Francisco,” he said. “I’ll leave something for them.”

Asked how he blocks out distractions, he says:

“What’s my job description? That’s what I’m doing at that time,” Bonds said. “No, I don’t forget [what is said]. I will never forget. I forgive you but I don’t forget. I forgive everybody.”

Much as I hate to imagine how gruesome it would be if the Sultan were to take a flying leap off the Empire State Building, I can’t be the only person wondering if Pedro Gomez would have the presence of mind not to follow him.
