The Barry Bonds saga has become the sort of serial debacle that forces you to choose a favorite moment. There's race, sex, drugs, fame, money, family and Felipe Alou as everybody's multilingual grandfather. There are opinions and defenses and tears -- more tears than you'd expect, really -- but more than anything, there are priceless slices of life that touch you somewhere deep.

Like the picnic-table news conference last spring when Bonds told the ESPN cameraman to make sure he got his poor son in the picture.
