I know Barry Bonds is old news and hardly relevant in sports discussions these days, so I post this only because of its element of humor. Court papers were filed on Monday including the witness list federal prosecutors will use in their case to prove Barry Bonds lied under oath, and a few of them are just too funny to ignore.
First off, the prosecutors will run with what we all saw using the ‘ol eye ball test: Barry Bonds’ melon grew to humongous sizes. Recent pictures of Bonds revealed that Baroid has shrunk like a deflated balloon from the days when he was ruling baseball. He went from a skinny kid who could hit to a superhuman baseball cartoon version of the Incredible Hulk, complete with a gigantic melon. Prosecutors are expected to have Mike Murphy, the Giants clubhouse manager, testify that Baroid’s hat size increased during his time in San Francisco — and not because of his increased ego.
