Open Gameday Thread, 5/21

I just watched ESPN for 25 minutes, and I think I'm going to take my own ears off with a belt sander if I hear one more thing about Barry Bonds.

Karl Ravech: If you rearrange the letters of Barry's full name, Barry Lamar Bonds, you get the phrase "Barnyard Ram: Slob?". Now, the astrological sign of the Ram in Chinese lore is equivalent to the Western astrological sign of Cancer. I trust we know what that means, but what about the question itself? Steve?

Steve Phillips: Well, I think the anagram is questioning if Bonds is clean or not? Perhaps the mud in this anagrammatical barnyard is steroids, and Barry is just getting dirtier and dirtier.

Tino Martinez: What about the fact that rams aren't really considered barnyard animals? Maybe it means that Bonds is out of his element; a wild animal who is enraged that he's kept in a pen.

Ravech: It's tough to say, but maybe this 57-minute montage of Barry Bonds homers will help us figure it out....

I can't imagine how annoyed I'd be if I weren't a Giants fan.
