Jerome Bettis Picks Minor League Baseball Over DWTS

PSAMP HAS MOVED! CLICK HERE TO GET TO THE BRAND NEW SITE! NOW!


Sorry for getting your hopes up over The Bus possibly starring in the upcoming edition of Dancing With The Stars.

It isn't happening. Here's the official list. Jason Taylor, for whatever reason, is the NFL-entry. Stupid NY Post...lying to my face and whatnot.

However, the one-time Miller Lite spokesman/bar and grille entrepreneur/Detroit native has shifted some of his focus towards his part in an ownership group of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (the former Durham Bulls), a low-level minor league baseball team. The ownership group also includes Eddie "Married-to-a-Member-of-SWV" George.

Now, JB already has experience dealing with minor league baseball, as he is part of an ownership group of the Altoona Curve and the State College Spikes.

In looking at the Pelicans' Wikipedia page, it appears that a good number of current and former Atlanta Braves played for the Pelicans in the past (since the team is affiliated with Bobby Cox's major league squad). The list includes Rafael Furcal, Jeff Francoeur, Marcus Giles, Wilson Betemit and the Pirates' very own...ADD LaRoche.

The Curve, the Spikes...now the Pelicans. What's next for The Bus...the Lancaster Barnstormers? I don't think Clipper Magazine Stadium could handle it.

If he bought into the Barnstormers, I might actually attend some games there.

I went to one game, because I was offered free food and free ticket. It seriously took like 2 hours to get through 4 innings. Not because of the lower level players just constantly hitting the ball (that didn't happen). It was all the crap they did between each switch. Whenever they switched sides, they had some contest that prolonged the game.

it was quiet annoying. Oh, and my 10 year High School Reunion was held at a game, needless to say I did not attend.

Haha I purposefully threw the Barnstormers/Clipper Mag Stadium in there to see if you had any stories about the team/stadium.

Baited. Well done.

I still don't believe they fit that stadium where its at.

They did a great job of putting that stadium in there, and it really helped that particular area come back to life. They wanted to put the stadium close to the Park City Mall, it's already hellish traffic through that area as is.

The best part about the stadium is the kids play area, located right best the left field line. I believe they put up a net. There was not a net when they opened the stadium.

I'm a sucker, with crappy stories.
