Without directly admitting it, Barry Bonds will be missing the 2007 Home Run Derby because he is too lazy and "old." Apparently he can't swing at a couple of easy pitches.
"It's too long [the home run derby]. Too much waiting. Too much sitting around. You can't do that when you're 42," said an extremely fatigued looking Bonds.
Linesman reporter Liz Oak questioned Bonds further: "Isn't waiting and 'sitting around' part of a regular game of baseball?" In response, Bonds answered: "Next question!"
Meanwhile, 45 year-old NHL player Chris Chelios just renewed his contract with the Detroit Red Wings. At least some people believe in work ethic.
