I'm not good at sports (like my old mix tape said: I'm a Meltzer Not a Fighter). And I barely follow them. But I love this story about 21 year old college student Matt Murphy, who caught Barry Bonds's record breaking home run ball. Sharing it with his friend even though it's worth half a million? I so love this kid.
From Yahoo Sports:
Murphy, who went to the game during a layover from a flight to Australia, grew up near Shea Stadium and was wearing a Mets jersey when he made the charmed grab.
He told the New York Daily News he planned to keep 51 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the ball and would give the rest to his friend, Amir Kamal, 21, of New York, who was also at the game.
