Thumbs up Bosh Defends The City of Toronto

Following his time in Toronto for the World Baseball Classic, Atlanta Braves third basemen Chipper Jones said he was not crazy about the city. Toronto Raptors forward Chris Bosh says he could have been Jones' tour guide.

"Me and Chipper should have hung out," Bosh said at the Raptors' practice on Wednesday. "He should have called me. I'd have shown him a good time."

Bosh was kidding, as he does not know Jones. But while he thinks he knows what might have bothered Jones — the weather — Bosh said there is fun to be had in the city he calls home for the winter months.

"I have fun. I have a blast every day," Bosh said. "You have got to feel good to go outside. If you're going to go somewhere, the clouds kind of make you lazy.

"He's in Atlanta, and [baseball players] do spring training down there [in Florida and Arizona], and it's colder here. They're not used to that."

Perhaps Tourism Toronto should contact Bosh to do some work for them. Bosh, after all, sounded like a walking, rebounding advertisement on Wednesday.

"You have got museums, restaurants, clubs if you want to go out at night," Bosh said. "There's anything you want to do, shopping. That's what I like to do."

Guy is still upset from when we beat them in the world series back in 92 (and he was playing for their AA affiliate).

For what it's worth, a lot of people have been saying that they saw most of the US players out hitting the clubs having a good time and that almost everyone was seen there except for Chipper.

There is a hell of a lot more you can do than just "pull your eyebrows out".

If anything, Bosh has impressed me even more right now with these comments. Shows class and maturity. If he does leave, it wouldn't be because he dislikes the city, he just doesn't like the team.

Chipper is a name for a bird

ATL isn't much fun either
all you do is sit in a rocking chair on your front lawn in the suburbs
Toronto is a better city

I am sure i could find things wrong with any city. In the same regard, i could find cool things and areas with any city as well.

Chipper just wasn't trying. On top of that he ran his mouth. I got no respect for a lazy asshole.

Chris Bosh has class.

If he wanted to gamble that badly, he just should have went up to Woodbine.

The problem with Jones is that he's not cultured and he's not into chasing skirts, so there really wasn't much for him to do in the city. Factor in the notion that he's not really playing and well, everything just left him angry.
