American Idol, meet Barry Bonds

barry bonds paula abdulMaybe Barry Bonds had the song, "Opposites Attract" in his head when he decided to dress up like Paula Abdul for a recent publicity stunt. If anything, Barry Bonds is the Simon Cowell of baseball.

Why was Barry Bonds all dressed up like Paula Abdul, you ask? He was judging a mock singing contest for a charity event in Arizona. Nobody expected Bonds to dress in drag, so he got quite a response from fans and his teammates.

Said Bonds, "I'll never tell my wife to hurry up anymore, because it took me forever to get ready. I couldn't get the hair right."

I think he looks more like Star Jones.

Yogi have you ever considered that Bond's complete lack of respect for the game and it's other players might be the reason most people outside of San Francisco wish he would walk in front of a bus?

Awesome story and picture on Barry Bonds. BUT - Why does our society still consider this type of stuff to be noteworthy, or scandalous??? Women wear mens cloths ALL THE TIME! When a man wears womens cloths, of any type, for any reason, It turns out to be cause for notice or scandal. WHY??? Personally, I wish more men would do this sort of stuff. I don't know why some people think just because a man does it, it indicates "gayness," or whatever. I personally am an older "rocker," who loves to wear nail polish, on both my fingers and toes. I receive nothing but positive comments from people. I guess that is why this article caught my attention. Thanks, Anton.

straight guys are always liking to dress up like women, but hey, do not ask them to go and see a movie about two gay cowboys...

I want to take the time to thank the the Giants and Barry Bonds for raising the money for the Children's Charity. The Giants are going to match the dollar amount that the players donated. I am sure the $365.00 that Mr Bonds and the other players pried out of their wallets will be appreciated by the Children. Barry, Again...Just like when you were in Pittsburg and didn't show up at the Childrens Hospital.....Still a Rookie in life, And always will be.
