Chipper Jones gave the worst pregame speech ever for the All-Star Game (Video)

Chipper Jones is retiring after the season, making this year the farewell tour for what’s probably been a hall-of-fame career. Evidently that meant Chipper, one of four Braves all-stars, was required to give a stirring pregame speech to inspire NL team (because, as you know, the All-Star Game matters!). Gave a speech, he did. Stirring and inspirational, it was not. Here’s video of the speech, and as you’ll learn, it was a miracle the NL still managed to get out to an early 8-0 lead:

    What kind of headline is this? I guess you are well on your way to adding to the inane, shallow, yellow, self centered journalism we have to endure these days. Congratulations on YOUR inspirational opportunism.

    Good Job way to sit behind the computer all day and try to make fun of people that have actually done something with their life. Easy to sit on a chair. Try making it to 8 all star games and the Hall of Fame

    Nobody ever said Chipper was a motivational speaker, just a great ballplayer. Get over yourself.
