This morning I was eating my breakfast of champions when I read the following headline from SF Examiner: "Barry Bonds Seeks Instructor Role With Giants."
Naturally, I rubbed my eyes to make sure I was reading that right, and then I proceeded to choke on my bagel.
Sure enough my eyes didn't deceive me; Barry Bonds is actually looking for a job in the MLB. The same Barry Bonds that practically cheated his way to the record books and found himself in a legal pickle years after his career was over.
It seemed ridiculous at the time that one of the most controversial athletes in the history of mankind would have the nerve to ask for employment, but then it made sense to me. Maybe Bonds does have a few positions open for him on San Fransisco's bench, and perhaps he can pass some of his talents along to some up and coming players in the organization.
Hey Giants' front office, if you're reading this, I have five positions that will fit Bonds like his size 25 hat right here!
