The Truth and John Rocker
So, I still like the idea that we need theories to stop Bonds, and John Rocker is still the Chuck Norris of these ideas. I've paid $35 and up to see some pretty terrible major league baseball games and I would defintely pay at least that much on a regular basis to see Rocker chunk fastballs at Barry's weak ass tendons. See Resolution Number 1
The true irony (at least it's kind of ironic to this website) about all of this is that Barry's home run chase has been virtually irrelvant all season long with the exception of that annoying "Chasing Aaron" feature ESPN scrolls on the bottom of the TV screen, and meanwhile John Rocker has been on the news (like the legit news not Sportscenter) putting the media in its place on a variety of topics including Mel mother F'ing Gibson. Not to mention the Pros vs. Joes event where dudes had to charge the mound and play King of the Hill against the Mouth of the South. That was badass.
Which finally brings me to the point of this post. Though people still ask about the site, we really still only have one big fan - who just happens to work with Mr. Rocker. So we here at BoD now have two missions: 1) Stop Barry Bonds from breaking a great record held by a legitimate, great American and 2) Have John Rocker add something to this blog...especially if it's answering questions. But anybody who has ever watched that stupid "Hot Seat" gimmick they do on Sportscenter knows that people sometimes ask dumb F'ing questions and they never ask what you want to hear answered. So pretend you have John Rocker on the "hot seat" or in an elevator or in your holding cell, etc. and you can only ask one question...what would it be? I think mine would be serious. For example:
"Mr. Rocker, you have been the target of the hitman that is the media. Though you were just one baseball player speaking his mind off the cuff, the onslaught caused major problems and no doubt had some negative impact on your career. So the question, do you think the lessons you learned from the media overkill as it relates to sports carry over into how you view politics? That is, how trusting are you of the media when it comes to things like the First Amendment, the War on Terror, President Bush, and things of that nature?"
Damn. That question kind of sucks. I'm sure anyone reading this can come up with something better...and if you do, leave a comment and maybe we will get some feedback from a guy from Georgia who did what every Southerner would do if given the chance: piss off the entire state of New York.
UPDATE: The website is freaking out and I can't add any pictures. But, if you go to Rocker's website...it turns out Mr. Rocker really doesn't have a problem a with people of other races, especially if they are smoking hot.
