Whoops! Freudiant Mispelling. With Barry Bonds' All-Time Homer tying blast last night, I thought to commemorate the milestone with another from the vault.

You may recall Gavin Newsom canceled an appearance celebrating TV host Conan O’Brien’s visit to San Francisco to give an interview to ESPN’s “SportsCenter” about Barry Bonds in preparation for the San Francisco Giants’ slugger breaking Hall of Famer Hank Aaron’s career home run record of 755.

In return, O’Brien joked about receiving flowers from Newsom. “When I tried to thank him, he said, ‘They’re for your wife,’” O’Brien said, referencing Newsom’s dalliance with former campaign manager Alex Tourk’s wife, Ruby Rippey-Tourk, for which the mayor has publicly apologized.

We will be sure to add the interview as soon as it aires. Meantime, best wishes to both Barrys and the rest of the Giants in the upcoming homestand. We’ll see you around McCovey Cove.
