I just read a mind-blowing article on People Magazine’s sexiest MLB fan alive.. Chris Piela, a fan of the Sox, was dubbed the sexiest fan alive this month. Which leaves me to ask this: how many decaf-drinking blind people voted in this competition? Piela is not a bad looking guy, he’s a great looking guy, but he is not the sexiest fan ALIVE. Case in point: Alysa Milano. Huge Dodgers fan. Is Piela sexier than her? I don’t think so buddy. What are you going to tell me next? That Jeter’s arm strech before every at bat is cooler than Papi’s spit and hand slap?
Granted, Milano is a celebrity.. She already has season tickets and gets to flirt with all her favorite players. She is the luckiest woman on earth. So, fans will say she doesn’t deserve the ‘Sexiest Fan’ title on top of her celebrity status. Touche, but she at least should have been in the running to make the competition seem legit. If anyone is going to take this contest serious again, next year’s winner better be a Victoria’s Secret model with her team’s logo tattooed all over her body.
I now think Milano is one of the coolest celebrities because of her passion for baseball. I never knew she was a life long baseball fan of the Dodgers and I think that’s so cool. It is SO hard to meet females around my age who love baseball. I meet plently of poser girl fans who mistake Manny for Pedro and Daisuke for Okijima. And Trying to meet a male fan is a joke.. Getting a guy to go to Fenway with me is like pulling teeth trying to make him understand ‘this is NOT A DATE.” It never works. They somehow get offended because I order a two bedroom hotel room for the night after the game. What do I look like? Do you see me wearing pinstripes?
Piela seems like a great guy, but Milano is on that level of hotness that you just have to tip your hat to in defeat.
Milano – in my book – you are the sexiest MLB fan alive.
