Omar Vizquel is way more interesting than you

omar-vizquel-bullfighter.jpgTexas Rangers infielder Omar Vizquel is a well-rounded man.

As the oldest position player in the majors, it must get a little boring to field ground ball after ground ball. Perhaps that's why he spent some of his last offseason rounding up anacondas.

You know, just to feel alive.

While that may be something that even Indiana Jones wouldn't do, it apparently isn't exciting enough for Vizquel to undertake for a second straight year.

So, he's doing the only sensible thing.

He's going to become a bullfighter.

"Just go and learn the basics and stuff," Vizquel said. "It's one of my things on the to-do list. There's a lot of things still to do."
There are few players who can match Vizquel's offseason pursuits. Among the other adventures he hopes for: parachuting, flying in an F-16 jet and attending all three Triple Crown horse races.
My life suddenly seems so boring.

He is also one of the classiest human beings to "ever" play the game.
