It's Hard Out There For a Catcher
1. They used terms such as "casanova catcher", "straying slugger", and "ruggedly handsome player" instead of something more professional such as, let's see, "LoDuca?"
2. They asked her about his performance in bed, to which she responded "he's alright, below what I expected".
3. She was quoted as saying "I thought I was special"- after discussing how she met him only for sex, and only when the Mets were in Philly.
And I'm so glad that I didn't post this when I wrote it yesterday afternoon because it was back on the front page this morning. After taking the side of the girl yesterday, the Post ripped her big time today, calling her a groupie, headlining the column "ball girls" (ha!), and mocking parts of her MySpace profile, citing:
Interests: My amazing boyfriend Paul and the METS OBV!!!
Favorite Quotes: OMG THERE'S PAUL LODUCA'S GIRLFRIEND!
I swear I didn't make this up. They even had an expert groupie offering some ho-analysis. They also quote some "expert" as saying, "Groupies deny that their goal is to more than a screw, but that is all they can attain." So you help the NY Post sell out one of it's local players and the next day you're nothing more than "a screw".
- I think I will start a MySpace page dedicated to calling myself Jessica Alba's Boyfriend. Would The Post run a story on that? What is this world coming to? C'Mon, Like LoDuca is the first MLB player to have side-ho's. Big F'ing deal. They definitely didn't give the "Strahan had an affair with a male" story this much attention. It's all garbage. I agree, this is an unecessary bashing of a local star without warrant.
