Dodgers Should Sign Barry Bonds

I always thought this would be the quintessential signing.  Last year when he was chasing the home run record and all the talk was about how the Giants wouldn’t sign him, I suggested (but who would listen…what was I thinking?) that the Dodgers go out and get him.  And now, here he sits.  He said today, “I am not retired”, apparently a subtle suggestion to the Dodgers.  I think it would be marvelous.

We already have Manny, and some ESPN talking head said that what Manny (he just struck out…although isn’t he performing marvelously) did to the Red Sox these last few months was worse than the steroids scandal, so why not?  We could use another bat.  Barry is available.  I love the potential irony.  He could take us to the World Series, and that is all that matters.

  1. Exactly…Schmidt, Jones, I think we should go after Zito and Clemens. Why not? Colleti needs to read Money Ball. Pretty soon I am going to start rooting for Arizona. Let the kids play, Ethier is my vote.

    Roy, you could not possibly have thought that I was serious??? I have to work on my sarcastic writing style.

  2. haha…you have to be joking! You do surprise me sometimes with what you think but this is just way to far out there…haha good one 🙂

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.

What is the Church?

I miss going to church on Sunday. Our church has decided to not meet during COVID-19. We are taking what we consider to be the safe, love your neighbor approach. Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
