Given my pyromaniacal tendencies, it's only natural for me to post this for those who haven't read it. Entertaining piece, but not 'hard news'.

please edit it to put "bonds" in the title, so that those of us who are ignoring these threads can ignore properly... ;-D

I really don't care what Bayless has to say about Bonds. He doesn't have my respect.

Bayless is one of the "journalists" and I use that term losely that has made a career of spouting off crap

The man has nothing good to say about anything and I have ceased to read anything the guy writes He has zero credibility and should be tossed to the curb with the rest of the garbage

I guess RugbyD gets his jollies by 'reporting' this kind of stuff. IMO, Bayless is scum. He is racist (very much against Bonds, T.O. and Jordan) and always for the white underdog.

Yeah, you're right. What was I thinking? I mean if someone had actually posted something about Barry Bonds in the past 3 weeks then maybe it would make sense. But that doesn't happen here. nope. not at all. zero discussion. yup.



It's funny how the back pain of the die-hards increases their irritability as more straws get added to the pile.

Guys, the article wasn't really reporting anything. It was just funny... And seriously made some very good points that have been brought up by other people. I don't know Bayless very well being from Toronto. But the things he has said in this article make pretty good sense. And pretty much everything he has said otyhers have said too.

The conference was planned. The Sanders jersey was planned. The crutches are a joke.

Don't get on the guy that posted this. He didn't write the article. He just thought it was funny and thought some people would get a kick out of it since Barry is talked about so much...and you know what? He was right. I got a kick out of it and so have a few others. Just cause you don't like it don't shoot the messenger.
Barry Bonds for US president.
