CORNY Local Baseball Commercials – Pittsburgh You Are NOT Alone

Posted on April 10, 2009. Filed under: MLB, Random | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

THANK YOU COMCAST . . . For the first week of the season, our cable provider aired a free preview of their Major League Baseball season package, so we could watch EVERY game on its local networks.  I was happy to see that Fox Sports was not limiting its corniness to it’s local Pittsburgh coverage.  It’s everywhere. 

You know what I am talking about.   The low-budget, poorly written productions starring your favorite players, coaches and announcers and their bad acting jobs . . .  

For their latest attempt, the Pirates have bit off the shamwow guy, Vince Shlomi.  Of course, they weren’t the only ones.  Shlomi was just arrested for beating up a hooker after she bit his tongue and wouldn’t let go – which makes me wonder WHY IN THE HELL are the Bucs imitating a prostitute beating “john” pitch man in their commercial?

Why was this guy even paying a hooker anyway?  Can’t he have any girl he wants with his shamwow “celebrity”? 

From ShamWOW to ShamOW

Um, never mind.  I understand why now.  I guess with a name like Vince Shlomi you are destined for two things:  quick tongued, slimy hard selling on infomercials and propositioning prostitutes . . .

Anyway, the Pittsburgh Pirates have always had goofy commercials to try and entice fans to come to the ballpark.  Give it up.  It’s counterproductive.  Here’s an idea . . . put a competitive team on the field.  I think they are going in the right direction, but until then, stick with the fireworks and bobble heads, Buccos.
