Everyones favorite catcher, A.J. Pierzynski, made a guest appearance on the Jerry Springer show. Unfortunately for everyone, it isn’t because he was in love with a transsexual. No, Pierzynski made an appearance as a member of the security.
I have a few questions about this. What the hell caused Pierzynski to decide to do this? Did he call up Jerry Springer? Did Jerry Springer call him up? Did the White Sox add a clause to his contract stipulating that any injury caused by the psycho on the show wouldn’t be covered by them? I’m going to give Pierzynski some credit and call him one of the biggest a-holes in sports, but I think Jerry could have found someone a little more intimidating than him.
Pierzynski doesn’t have a history of breaking up fights, he has a history inf instigating them. Bad choice for the security job? Probably, but then again, after seeing baseball fights, most of them are hardly more intimidating than what happens on the set of Jerry Springer.
At least A.J. got to improve his public image. It’s not like the entire world thought he was trashy anyways. Errrrr. I haven’t met Pierzynski, nor do I really want to. I haven’t heard anything good about him yet, and this appearance certainly won’t change any of that.
