The Irony of Barry Bonds on "90210"

Ok, so this isn't a Mets specific post but it's something I had to write.

In this month's edition of ESPN the Mag, Bill Simmons writes a fantastic piece on why no one misses Barry Bonds and how an episode of "Beverly Hills 90210" was a self-fulfilling prophecy for the slugger.

Bill Simmons, in my mind, is one of the best sports satire writers I have ever read and his column alone makes it worth the subscription to ESPN the Mag.

I'd comment on it, but you should really just read it yourself and I think you'll find it both entertaining and eerily creepy. By the way, I must confess I do remember watching that episode, but not on reruns.

For a sneak peek of the episode, watch this:
