Family Guy (for the most part)

ESPN debuts its new reality series / sad marketing ploy “Baroid on Baroid” on Tuesday. The docu-ganda interviews the Giant outfielder on a variety of subjects, including Baroids lackluster playoff record (which started in high school at Serra High School in San Mateo, California) to steroids.

At one point in the show, Baroid breaks down and cries (wait until Gary Sheffield hear's about this!) when describing how he doesn’t care if the media and public break him, so long as he’s there to stand up for his family. Baroid put on a masterful performance, with eyes watering on queue and his voice crackling (wonder if the Grand Jury got a taste of his acting ability?).

It was a perfect exhibition of emotion except for this next part. His screenwriters may have their work cut out for them for the next episode after the Oakland Tribune published a report on Tuesday, telling the tale of Bonds aunt, Rosie Bonds Kreidler. Apparently Aunt Rosie who has been living out of a car for the past year after a car wreck left her unable to work. Without a job, Aunt Rosie can't pay the bills.

So the big sobbing family man tries showing the public a softer side, thumping his chest about how he’s there for his family, while his father’s sister is passing the days in a junked car? Isn't Baroid worth a few bucks?

She says she hasn’t asked him for assistance because she’s embarrassed to ask, but the point here is that big man is supposedly looking out for his family. Guess not. Baroid declined to comment on the story, which means we’ll get the staged response in a few weeks, via his new marketing buddy, ESPN.

get a life...1) I have an uncle that i wouldn't lift a finger to help because he is an asshole...you don't choose your family and sometimes there are bad people in it. we don't know the circumstances 2) if barry doesn't know what's going on in her life and she doesn't say anything then the guy can't read minds.

there are plenty of things to get on Barry's case about...you sir are just another moron who will pick at anything.

The fact that you don't like my post may make me cry. Oh wait, I'm not Baroid. Never mind.

"you don't choose your family and sometimes there are bad people in it"? Dude, you obviously don't know what the meaning of family is. You're supposed to support them regardless. If it's my 60 year old aunt, I have her back even if she's a crack whore.

Hey Great Blog. As much as Family guy used to rock in the first few seasons, it is getting down every season with same stale comedy and jokes. IMO Souht Park and SImpsons are also going down the hill.

Anyway for those who can not download Family guy from torrents and are looking for all Seasons of Family guy, they can download it from here -


Hope this helps others.
