Barry Bonds

Matt Murphy is the lucky guy who caught the 756 homerun ball that Barry Bonds hit to surpass Hank Aaron’s record. Now of course like any other owner of historical sports memorabilia he is auctioning it off to get Paaaaaiiiiiiiid!!!

Already Murphy’s ball stands at a price of $260,555. Murphy is hoping to sell it for at least $500,000 but would definitely settle for a record $3million the same price that Mark McGuire’s 70th home run ball went for in 1998.

How is Murphy dealing with the drama of auctioning off his record ball???

“I’ve been playing it off like it’s nothing,” Murphy says. “How? I have no idea. In my mind, I’m doing cartwheels.”

Juanita Bynum’s husband denies abuse!!!! “I walked away that night”

Posted by Media Outrage on September 14, 2007

Thomas Weeks

Bishop Thomas Weeks III held a press conference at his church today to let the world know that he is not an abuser of women. Thomas W. Weeks, 40, also a preacher, said he felt compelled to speak his peace after his famous wife announced to the public recently that she was “the new face of domestic violence.”

Weeks, who faces felony charges for allegedly beating, choking and stomping his wife to the ground at a hotel parking lot on Aug. 21, said there are “two sides to every story.”

“I want to be clear in saying I do not condone in any way, shape or form violence of any kind towards women,” said Weeks in a conference room at Global Destiny Church of Duluth. “My role has always been to operate as a protector and not as an aggressor. I have walked away from many situations between the two of us, just like I walked away that night.”

Weeks said he and Bynum, 48, were trying to reconcile the night before the alleged attack. They separated in June.

“I was with my wife the entire night and felt that our love for each other was going to get us through these hard times,” Weeks said.

On the day of the alleged attack, Weeks said he went to the hotel restaurant because his wife needed help. Weeks said Bynum had banned him from using her likeness at his church in June when they separated. But on Aug. 21, Weeks said, Bynum asked to return to Global Destiny Church to raise money for her mentorship classes.

“She shared her urgency that we meet that night because she needed to solidify the location to make her commercials,” he said.

Bynum has said she was beaten that night and that she had a stormy relationship with Weeks that included pushing and shoving. She filed for divorce on Monday, claiming “cruel treatment” as the grounds.

Weeks said the facts of the criminal case will come out at the appropriate time. He said he still wants to avoid a divorce.

“In the last five years, I have always loved my wife and have been nothing but faithful to her,” he said. “I understand that my silence to date has given me the perception of guilt, but understand that it was because my belief in the sacredness of marriage and hopes of true and full reconciliaiton as to why I kept silent.”

Weeks, 40, was charged with felony aggravated assault, felony terroristic threats and two counts of simple battery in connection with the alleged attack on Bynum the night of Aug. 21. He could face up to 27 years in jail if convicted.

“This is not a case about money,” Kessler said. “He has had his mind on the relationship. Legally, I could advise him he is entitled to alimony, but he would probably be upset at me if I mentioned it.”

“I would like Juanita to know that I respect but regret her decision for divorce . . . I am praying God’s best for her.”
