Yes. Has MLB caught him for being on the juice? No. So, until he's proven guilty, treat this accomplishment as legit. For a good portion of Hank Aaron's career, he played a 162 game schedule. Does that mean we put an asterisk next to his home run total because The Babe hit his home runs with a shorter game schedule? No. Every era has its intangibles. When Babe played, the ballparks were smaller, he didn't play against black players and the pitching wasn't exactly the greatest.
I could care less about the sanctity of the game's all-time records and all that other nonsense.

I just think it's abundantly clear that Bonds used steroids. That is all.

Is it a holiday in Canada today? Strange that the Yankees and Blue Jays are playing an afternoon game...

What's faster than a speeding bullet?

The Tiger's collapsing season.

The word from Detroit is that the team is "too nice."

Detroit failing means more chances for the Mariners to get into that wild card top spot.

Too bad the Yankees decided to start playing well and are neck-and-neck with them now.

Yup, most provinces have a holiday on the first Monday of August except Newfoundland, we have it on the first Wednesday.

Each province is different. I think we just needed a holiday in August so we made up one. British Columbia has BC day while in Newfoundland, we have Regatta day, although Regatta day has been around for 189 years.

Here is a list of the provincial holidays in Canada

Ontario
Civic Holiday [first Monday of August]

Quebec
National Day [June 24]

Nova Scotia
Natal Day [first Monday of August, except in Halifax where it varies from year to year, usually August or July]

New Brunswick
New Brunswick Day [first Monday of August]

Manitoba
Civic Holiday [first Monday of August]

British Columbia
British Columbia Day [first Monday of August]

Prince Edward Island
Natal Day [by proclamation, usually on first Monday of August]

Saskatchewan
Family Day [third Monday of February]
Civic Holiday [first Monday of August]

Alberta
Alberta Family Day [third Monday of February]
Heritage Day [first Monday of August]

Newfoundland
Celebrated on nearest Monday:
St. Patrick's Day [March 17]
St. George's Day [April 23]
Discovery Day [June 24]
Memorial Day [July 1]
Orangemen's Day [July 12]
Regatta Day / Civic Holiday [fixed by municipal council orders]

Northwest Territories
National Aboriginal Day [June 21]
Civic Holiday [first Monday of August]

Yukon
Discovery Day [third Monday of August]

These aren't necessarily paid days off, just a day off in work in the middle of summer.
