Chipper Jones has been doing a good job keeping himself busy in the first few months of his retirement.  He's been out and about with his new Playboy model girlfriend, spending time promoting his "VIP" Super Bowl party and generally getting chubbier.  But it isn't all glitz and glamor for the future Hall of Famer.  It turns out that when it comes to putting things together, Chipper is as bad at that as he good at baseball. What's wrong with this pic folks? Never said I was the sharpest tool in the shed. Damn ladder!!! Lol twitter.com/RealCJ10/statu… — Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) December 27, 2012 As a guy who struggles to assemble basic furniture, I want to sympathize with Jones, but... I mean... come on.  That's just ridiculous.  I guess we should give him points for actually properly assembling the hoop (or at least it looks like it), but that only bumps it from a level 100 fail to a level 99.  Good job, good effort, Chipper.  Maybe next time use the proceeds from your asburd Super Bowl party to hire a handyman to put things together for you next time.
