Barry Bonds versus Japan
This video seems to be from right after the season that Bonds hit 73 home runs. Some Japanese game show or something came to the local high school in my hometown to have Bonds play in a live version of a Japanese baseball board game. Yeah, what I just wrote really makes no sense, but neither do Japanese game shows. Anyway, it features Bonds taking cuts against a super-modified pitching machine. And also Barry talking smack to a Japanese comedian. I'm stunned Bonds agreed to do this. He must have been in a steroid-induced haze when he signed up for this, there's really no other explanation.
The whole episode is on YouTube, and this is just part 2. So if you're really looking to kill some time today, here's part 1 which has a hilarious introduction of Bonds and part 3 which is him taking more cuts and trying to strike out the Japanese guy using the pitching machine.
