Seriously, how many people are going to keep calling this guy an ace before they open their eyes? Anyways…
And speaking of the Reebok party, Red Sox hurler Josh Beckett had eight strikeouts earlier in the day at Fenway. But unfortunately his K-streak continued at Underbar, where one striking young redhead didnâ€™t buy his pitch!
We hear Beckett homed in on the party gal and opened with his best line: â€œHey, you.â€ Blown away by his sparkling repartee, Big Red responded by saying â€œhi,â€ and then walked away.
â€œShe knew who he was, but sheâ€™s from Michigan and doesnâ€™t have the hero worship for the Red Sox,â€ said our spy on the scene. â€œPlus she doesnâ€™t care about him being a pro athlete.â€
â€œHe then comes up to her again – now on the other side of the bar – and starts whispering sweet nothings into her ear,â€ said our source. â€œShe canâ€™t really figure out what heâ€™s saying, so she says, â€˜Great game today. Congratulations.â€
He responds with â€œHuh?â€ So she repeats it. And receives yet another, â€œHuh?â€
â€œYou. Pitched. A. Great. Game,â€ she said.
His response: â€œAre you wasted?â€ Her response: â€œNo, I just got here.â€
â€œHe then looked at her funny and wandered off,â€ said our source.
“Hey baby, are your parents retarded? Cause you’re a pretty special girl” might have worked better.Â Maybe Beckett should stick to what David Ortiz does best and…ahem…bring men home.
