There may not be a player on the planet who makes a better impression than Jimmy Conrad, and it seems just about everybody he meets becomes an instant best friend. After he announced his retirement in August, @MLS_Insider started an impromptu "Jimmy Conrad Roast," to which Jimmy responded:
I heard I had to jump online to see all the nice things being said about me. I'm still looking for those nice things. Bring it on, roasters!— JimmyConrad_com (@JimmyConrad_com) August 19, 2011
What followed was nothing short of awesome. Former teammates, media personalities and lots and lots of fans got in on the fun. Many of the jokes focused on Conrad's age, and quite a few that addressed his looks. Here are a few of our favorites.

If you wrote a book about Jimmy Conrad's career it would fill volumes. But how many times can you write "adequate"? #JimmyConradRoast— Zombie Jaqua (@ZombieJaqua) August 19, 2011
