Hank Aaron’s home burglarized

Barry Bonds’ reign of terror continues unabated:

While baseball legend Hank Aaron and his wife were away, burglars forced their way into the couple’s southwest Atlanta home, stealing jewelry and two BMWs, police said Friday.

I still consider Hank Aaron to possess the two BMWs. I know he technically does not anymore, but he still has those BMWs in my opinion.

    Well played, sir.

    Hank will always be the king, and a perfect gentleman to boot.

    Lame

    A family was burglarized , and your making jokes…stay classy Craig!

    • unclemosesgreen - Jul 22, 2013 at 8:42 AM

      You’re the type of idiot who makes other idiots feel better about themselves.

    You’re in good company, Craig: Kimberly Bell and Victor Conte also think those BMW’s still belong to Hammerin’ Hank. However, a federal jury disagrees. And Greg Anderson? He ain’t talking.

    ehhh…. that one was a reach Craig. if it takes more than 10 seconds for you to find the witty line, when writing a story, then the witty line is probably not so witty.

    on the flip side, any truth to the rumor Barry Bonds is the prime suspect? guess he wanted to see what else he could STEAL from Hammerin Hank!

      I think you’re making the same joke here. With less subtlety.

  7. bills399 - Jul 22, 2013 at 9:10 AM

    at least Craig’s columns allow people to voice their opinions, unlike football “analyst” mike Florio. disagree with him in anything the comments or at least my comments mysteriously don’t make it.that being said if u side with a dirt bag like bonds u will be surrounded by very few.

    • pbastille - Jul 22, 2013 at 9:43 AM

      I hear ya on that one. My PFT posts all seem to vaporize, even the innocuous ones.

    • myhawks1976 - Jul 22, 2013 at 10:00 AM

      Agreed one hundred percent. Disagree with Florio once and your comments are good forever. I disagreed with leaving LT off the Chargers Rushmore, and all of a sudden every subsequent post goes poof… Weak.

      I will give Craig all kinds of credit there.

      • yahmule - Jul 22, 2013 at 10:25 AM

        Florio can afford to run people off. He cheerfully panders to an endless supply of mouth-breathing racists who keep his hit numbers nice and fat. There are soooo many better places on the internet to read about football.

      • jimeejohnson - Jul 22, 2013 at 3:46 PM

        Love the unanimity on your comment, yahmule.

    • busterandbarry - Jul 22, 2013 at 6:03 PM

      I understand not rooting for someone because he is on a rival team or he is a threat in some other way to a team or player for which you are rooting. However, it is ludicrous that I read so often of what a “dirt bag” or egomaniac or some other hyperbolic description of Barry Bonds, but never by anybody that actually knows him. Bills399 has as much probability of knowing whether or not Bonds is actually a “dirt bag” as he does of actually hitting 762 home runs, himself.

    I’m a little disturbed by this:

    “Aaron, 79, missed a call from his alarm company Sunday night and asked a neighbor to check his house Monday morning, according to an Atlanta police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    “The neighbor saw a broken window at Aaron’s house and called police.

    “Responding officers arrived to find parts of the house ransacked and two BMWs missing from the garage, the police report states.”

    So the alarm company didn’t call the cops when he missed their call? I would think if the alarm got tripped and the owner didn’t answer that would mean an automatic call to the police.

    • American of African Descent - Jul 22, 2013 at 10:00 AM

      I agree. And I’d think the alarm company — and not Aaron’s insurance company — would pay for the damage.

      • burkeandstock - Jul 22, 2013 at 10:32 AM

        Sounds like whom ever it was didn’t know where they were. Hank must have some incredible baseball memorabilia. Irreplaceable stuff possibly worth millions

    • yahmule - Jul 22, 2013 at 10:27 AM

      Sounds like ADT.

        They are truly an awful company. Most of the big players in the alarm business are, and can afford to not try. Well worth finding an independent.

      • yahmule - Jul 22, 2013 at 1:10 PM

        ADT is infamous for treating clients and employees alike poorly.

      • mybrunoblog - Jul 22, 2013 at 2:48 PM

        Someone should have told Hank. Drop the pricey alarm company. Keep the signs though. They can be a deterrent. Keep your light on, tv running and cars in driveway when you leave your home. Loud dogs help too. When your home, keep that pistol safely locked up but close by. Be able to access the pistol quickly even in low light conditions.

  9. sandrafluke2012 - Jul 22, 2013 at 10:28 AM

    I bet Hank wished he had a “white-hispanic” guy guarding his neighborhood.

    • koufaxmitzvah - Jul 22, 2013 at 10:51 AM

      I bet you would love to shoot some people just because they look different and you decide they act funny.

      • sandrafluke2012 - Jul 22, 2013 at 11:28 AM

        Oh. George shot him cause of that? Liberals wanted this for the narrative so bad.

      • koufaxmitzvah - Jul 22, 2013 at 11:30 AM

        Oh, Sandra, are you suddenly a Rushbot?

        Rushbots are funny because they think they’re smart enough to speak for Liberals.

      • forsch31 - Jul 22, 2013 at 12:32 PM

        You know, I live on a street with black gangs armed to the teeth. I know what gangbangers look like, and how they act. People like Sandra really need to wake up to what reality is like, before it comes crashing into them and takes them out.

      • jimeejohnson - Jul 22, 2013 at 3:48 PM

        You don’t suddenly become a Rushbot. You have to be born to stupid parents, first. Then, you have to become another useful idiot pawn for the rich and powerful.

    • natslady - Jul 22, 2013 at 12:24 PM

      It’s funny, but George Zimmerman wasn’t my first thought when you posted this. Locally, a couple of burglars killed a hispanic guy who was the handyman, he was defending the owners’ property. One (maybe both) of the burglars were ex-cops, and were just convicted of the murder. That handyman was my first thought, poor soul.

  10. bmoreravens1012013 - Jul 22, 2013 at 10:52 AM

    To bills399: I agree with you on that one my friend.

  11. hojo20 - Jul 22, 2013 at 11:23 AM

    Yes, Aaron owns the BMWs because he holds the title to them.

  12. teambringitstrong - Jul 22, 2013 at 11:50 AM

    Whereas your opinions, comments, theories and motives are ‘heartfelt’ you can’t wipe your kitchen counter with them. Doesn’t matter, Bonds is the HR king.
    And anyone that hates him needs to call him up or go to his home and explain to him why you hate him so much. What? You don’t have his number or his address? Then you don’t know him well enough to have a problem with him.

    • louhudson23 - Jul 22, 2013 at 2:09 PM

      Hate him? Not necessary to hate him. He was a fake,a lab creation, a geek,a freak,.and not worthy of my respect nor my recognition….as HR King….hate need not enter into it…As a Braves fan,I actually used to feel sorry for him when he would choke so completely in the Playoffs for the Pirates(but not when he gator armed the Bream throw,that just sucked…)….I knew he was a better ball player than he was showing and that they would not be there without him…..but….then…he went all McGwire-Canseco and I began to feel about him the way I had always felt watching those other two sides of beef and he was no longer worthy of respect….

      • busterandbarry - Jul 22, 2013 at 6:13 PM

        I suppose you also felt sorry for him when he destroyed the Braves in the playoffs in 2002, when he made a sick mockery of a once proud pitching staff. Yeah, didn’t think so.

    • busterandbarry - Jul 22, 2013 at 6:09 PM

      That’s what I call “effective rebuttal.” Take that, Bills399!

  13. barrywhererufrom - Jul 22, 2013 at 2:45 PM

    Hate to hear someone being a victim of crime. Hopefully the bastards who burgalized his home will be brought to justice. Sadly the Aaron’s are not alone in their situation. Thank goodness they were not home when this occurred.
