Barry Bonds is back on the field — with a dog in the 145th Westminster Dog Show

From “The Show” to Best of Show?

(Should be) Hall of Famer Barry Bonds is back in a competitive sports field, kind of: Bonds and his dog Rocky are part of the 145th Westminster Dog Show, with the miniature schnauzer participating in the terrier group during the event.

Bonds, making an appearance on FS1 extolling the virtues of his pup, was glowing when discussing his dog on the broadcast:

“About 25 years, my sister bought a miniature schnauzer, and I got one with her,” Bonds said on the broadcast. … “She does all the work. I’m not gonna sit there and say I do — I don’t do much. My sister does it all. I support her to death. She’s my best friend in the whole wide world.

“This is just amazing,” Bonds continued. “Just to be here, to see it. It’s beautiful. I’ve watched it on TV many years. But to actually be here is amazing, and to actually have a dog here is even more gratifying.”

Obligatory snark that Bonds's dog is fourteen and has a head like a Rottweiler's.

Smart play on his part. Talk up his dog loving and maybe he gets a few more Hall votes. Maybe he should come out as something - the press loves that stuff.

If you guys want to know which dog is his at the show just look for the huge gold cross earring, the plethora of body armor to help with the obstacle course and lounge chair in the changing room.

Bonds did a couple of innings as a guest analyst on I think a Sunday Night Baseball game last year, and while I am not a fan overall, his insights were surprisingly interesting. a lot of it was adjustments he made within an at-bat depending on the count, pitcher's pitch repertoire, and so on.

if you just heard him there, you might not guess what a ######### he so often is said to have been.
