I never thought I’d say this, especially with Barry Bonds and the home run record looming only three swings away, but right now I’d rather be Bud Selig than any of the other commissioners of the major sports. I’m not including hockey as a major sport, and I'm not apologizing for that.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who was so eager to suspend and fine everyone under the sun a few weeks ago for misconduct has decided to take the wait and see approach with the second most popular player in his league, Michael Vick and the dog fighting scandal. And NBA Commissioner David Stern may just be facing the biggest sports scandals in recent history.

All three sports could be doing a lot better in terms of their public image, but when you line them up next to each other, Barry, his huge head, surly attitude, and huge ego don’t look as bad right now. So enjoy this moment Bud and take advantage of it. Slip into San Francisco and watch him break the record, in fact rent a kayak and watch it from McCovey Cove. Or don’t go at all, because I’m sure a lot less people are concerned about what you're going to do now than they were a week and a half ago.
