Chipper Jones enjoying retirement, picking fights with infants

Braves legend Chipper Jones has taken quite well to life after baseball, as evidenced by his desire to make sure thousands of Braves fans call a baby ugly.

Big life changes can stress anyone out, and retiring after 19 seasons of playing baseball at the professional level is enough to set even the most gentle soul on edge. A good way to transition out of that life is to spend some time interacting with fans, and what better way to do that than Twitter? You're sure to find enough support there that if someone says the wrong thing you can just laugh it off and move on.

Oh. Okay, calling an infant ugly and making sure that thousands and thousands of people do the same is probably just as good. Rather than wait out the 45 seconds it takes the internet to find something new, Lolovickery deleted his Twitter account. Chipper Jones, a winner in baseball and a winner on the internet. And that's a good thing, whatever it takes, you know? Chipper is reaching the next stage of his life, and if he needs to yell at a dog or punch a rainbow to settle in, more power to him.
