My Night in a Nutshell


Ecko Bought Bonds Ball, Putting Its Future to Vote

Fashion designer Marc Ecko said he is the buyer of Barry Bonds’s record-breaking 756th home run ball, and left its future to a public vote that considers possible steroid use by the Major League Baseball player.

I bought this baseball to democratize the debate over what to do with it,” Ecko, who paid $752,467.20 for the ball on Sept. 15 in an Internet auction, said on vote756.com, the Web site he set up to determine the ball’s future.

The ball was estimated by sports memorabilia experts before the auction to be worth $500,000, cutting its value in half because of steroid allegations surrounding Bonds.

The Web site offers three voting options for the ball: to bestow it, giving the ball to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York; to brand it, burning an asterisk into the ball before sending it to Cooperstown; or to banish it, putting the ball on a rocket and launching it into orbit.

Whatever.

The Yankees beat the O’s at Camden Yards, I’m this || close to becoming a Yankee fan.

Redskins over the Eagles by 8 five minutes to go.

My night in a nutshell.
