It's sad that he's become tired with his job and become the stereotypical worker that doesn't know how good he's got it.. You know.. the guy that's being paid well, but spends his entire lunch hour complaining about how his employer sucks.
I honestly don't know why he didn't retire years ago. It's obvious he doesn't enjoy his job anymore. He could retire and still have the "celebrity" status he enjoys so much. WLW could give him his own talk show, he could still do his annual golf thing, and keep doing commericals..
I think making the HOF has gone to his head to. No question it is a great honor but it just seems like since he got inducted his ego got pretty big and don't dare question his opinion on anything
