And your heart is my goal
I’ll pick the lock
With my pet rock
To get to your bell bottom soul

Agreed. You also can’t blame Bonilla, smart man. We are constantly amazed at the sad stories of athletes, etc. that blow through fortunes, I admire Bonilla for doing the direct opposite. Surprised more players haven’t done it. And frankly, as a long suffering, diehard fan, I couldn’t care less.

He turned 5.9 mil into 29.8 mil once 2035 hits. Very smart.

well Kevin Durant might be just a bit smarter, for deciding to be in NY, but not picking the Knicks while Dolan is in charge.

Lots of people like to make fun of Mets fans today. But, as pointed out by multiple people I know, deferring the money allowed them to trade for Mike Hampton, who helped lead them to a World Series. When Hampton left as a FA, the Mets received a pick in compensation. With that pick, the Mets drafted David Wright. Make fun all you want, but the Mets made out just fine when it comes to Bonilla. Plus most professional sports franchises can find $1 mill per year between the cushions of their couch. LOL

Saw Bonilla speak at Barry Bonds day in San Fran last summer. He travelled cross country to be there. Said he was glad to speak for his former teammate Bonds (Pirates), because he was pretty sure there wasn't going to be an opportunity for Bonds to speak for him.

Turns out that Bobby was actually able to do what Madoff claimed to be able to do
