From The Tenth Inning, we have Barry Bonds telling reporters that he didn’t care about being booed as he was close to breaking Hank Aaron’s career home-run record:
You gotta have a lot of talent to have 50,000 people shout that you suck.
He does have a point there. They booed him, but they came to see it anyway.
[Paraphrased, because I didn’t write it down soon enough to remember it exactly.]
