Barry Bonds homered for the first time in two weeks, then lost his cool two innings later.

Bonds hit his 723rd career home run with a solo shot to center in the seventh inning of the San Francisco Giants’ wild 5-2 loss to Colorado on Friday night, connecting for his first homer since July 20 against San Diego — a span of 26 at-bats.

Yet just when things appeared bright for the embattled San Francisco slugger, he got into it in the ninth with plate umpire Ron Kulpa over a called second strike.

Kulpa immediately ejected the arguing Bonds, who began yelling at the umpire from close range.

“There were two unprofessional people out there at that moment,” Bonds said. “He was very unprofessional and so was I. What happens on the field stays on the field and that’s all I have to say about it.”

Bonds returned to the dugout, sat down and crossed his arms as fans responded by throwing garbage, including beer bottles, onto the field from all directions. The Rockies quickly retreated into their dugout to avoid being hit while fans chanted “Barry! Barry!”

“I don’t care about that,” Bonds said of the fans’ actions. “We’re trying to win games, that’s all. It happened, it happened. It’s over with. Let’s go get ready for tomorrow.”

Hah, I remember this one Carolina Panthers game where they got blown out so bad and the fans went crazy, the refs had to leave the field with effing umbrella's before getting smashed by a bottle.

Looking for a link on youtube, it was insane.
