my reality TV date at RBIA

While the rest of you were undoubtedly working extremely hard at your jobs yesterday (Wednesday), I was on what turned out to be a pretty amazing date at the Ballpark.  When I was selected to be on a new series that premiers later this month I had one request - let me plan the date.

My immediate thought was to somehow plan a date that involved the Rangers in whatever way possible, knowing that this had tremendous potential to be a really cool experience for the lucky girl (and certainly for me, too).  My first email was to my longtime friend and marketing executive for the Rnagers, Chip K.  Chip immediately put a plan in motion and brought Dale P. (EVP Marketing) into the loop.  Dale and Chip guided us through the red tape with MLB, and in no time we had traction.

My date and I walked around the park, sat in my seats adjacent to the dugout, went in the dugout, played catch, had a picnic in the outfield, and a couple of other really cool/memorable activities (that unfortunately did not include any of the bases beyond first - LOL).

The date went off without a hitch yesterday except for one horrendous problem - I developed "Steve Blass Disease" (at the worst possible moment).  Channeling my inner Mark Wohlers, I sprayed the field with errant throws while the poor girl tried her best to catch them.  At least I didn't go Chuck Knoblauch and hit Keith Olbermann's mom in the face.  That *might* have been worse.

I can't explain my inability to make anything that even remotely resembled a good throw, but it was pretty damn embarassing.

Anyway...  the date airs late August, and I will update you guys with more details later.

Stay Hard...
