Game called on account of bees.

Ouch!!! !+)

Yahoo! Sports wrote:TUCSON, Ariz. - A swarm of bees invaded the field on Thursday and forced a game between the Colorado Rockies (news) and Arizona Diamondbacks (news) to be called after five innings.



The bees literally chased Rockies pitcher Darren Oliver from the mound. He kept trying to go back on the mound, but the bees would go after him again. Finally, he left for good and let another pitcher complete the inning.

"I love this game," Oliver said, "but I like myself a little bit more."

Oliver said the bees apparently were attracted to the coconut oil in his hair gel.

"It was kind of funny at first, but after awhile I started getting a little nervous and scared out there," he said.

The Diamondbacks took the field in the sixth, but by then the bees had spread out all over the field, and play was not resumed. Arizona beat the Rockies 3-1 in five innings.

Joe Garagiola Sr., attending the game with his son, Diamondbacks general manager Joe Garagiola Jr., said he had never seen anything like it.

"And I go back to 1942," the elder Garagiola said.

I have never heard of anything like that.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

That's the oddest game cancellation I've ever heard of.

I think the bigger question is what kind of hair does Darren Oliver have that he needs to use coconut hair gel? Does he have Rick James hair or something?
