Oh Yeah Barry Bonds??? ESPN Responds To Boycott Rumors With More Coverage

Friday, July 20, 2007

I don't know if they released this because of the recent "boycotting" of ESPN by Barry Bonds talk, but either way it seems pretty convenient. So you want to avoid ESPN Barry? Well try to avoid this.....

ESPN will provide live cut-ins and short turn-around highlights of Barry Bonds’ at bats when he goes for home runs 754, 755 and 756 during all Major League Baseball programming (Sunday Night Baseball, Monday Night Baseball, Wednesday Night Baseball and Baseball Tonight) as he attempts to break the all-time home run record. ESPN will also offer live or taped cut-ins in non-MLB programming (unless the at bat or home run occurs during any other national rightsholder telecast).
So basically Barry....if you don't want your 755th and 756th homers on ESPN, you have to do it Saturday on FOX.

P.S.- There will also be a documentary on Hank Aaron which will feature an older documentary by Tom Brokaw from October 1973. So it'll be a documentary of a documentary....nice. What am I saying....I'll still watch it. (Tuesday, July 24 at 7 p.m.)

P.P.S.- Don't look now Barry, but Pedro Gomez is hiding in a laundry hamper in your house. If you try and call the police they are just going to tell you that the call "came from inside the house!!!!".

I have a hard time believing any of this Bonds vs. ESPN vendetta stuff. He was mired in something like an 0 for 20 slump and he's a few days away from his 43rd birthday. I'm sure Bonds doesn't LIKE ESPN, but I also think any kind of "screw you" to the network is the last thing on his mind at this point.

Sorry to hijack your Bonds watch, but I'm running a contest for all fans of bad announcing out there. Chris Wheeler is a legendary horrible announcer for the Phils and has a love of HUGE(like Safeco) ballparks. Guess how many times he will mention it during the next 3 games and win a Chris Wheeler T-Shirt in your size!

Pedro Gomez and all the Boo-Yah Network ass clowns can't have it both ways. They are married to Bonds and are every bit the insecere a**holes Barry is.

Its quite easy. Every time Bonds appears he should be walked. He'll never get the record that way. Make it a public comment if you're a pitcher and you support the kind of things Bonds has been accused of then give him an easy pitch and lets move on but if all the pitchers in MLB decided to not want to be associated with what some consider a tainted record its easy to stop it happening Walk the Man!
