For the past three years, Red Sox rookie Daniel Nava (not pictured) has been leaving tickets for sideline princess Erin Andrews at will call. Now that he hit the first major league pitch he ever saw for a grand slam last night, maybe she’ll actually know who he is.
His financial manager must be Lenny Dykstra because this just seems like a fiscally irresponsible move for a young baseball player. Wouldn’t he presumably need those tickets for his friends, family and bargaining chips to make his poorer teammates eat bugs? There are red flags everywhere with this kid. Beloved EA, stay away!
Daniel Nava only has eyes for one woman: ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews.
Dan Hoard, radio announcer for Boston’s Triple-A team in Pawtucket, R.I., said that Nava’s been leaving the former “Dancing With the Stars” participant tickets at will call for the past three years. Andrews has yet to take him up on his offer.
He supposedly got the idea from Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who left pop star Jessica Simpson Cowboys tickets, hoping she showed up. It worked for Romo, as he and Simpson had a nearly two-year romance. -NY Daily News
Unfortunately for Nava, it looks like Erin Pageviews’ love has already been captured. BY A RUSSIAN! Yes, it seems as if Andrews is dating her Dancing With the Stars tango buddy Maksim Chmerkovskiy after the two demonstrated obvious chemistry while shimmying to a second place finish.
It’s been a long and winding road for the undrafted 27-year-old rookie, who began his collegiate baseball career as the equipment manager at Santa Clara University and weighed 70 pounds in the 9th grade. He had to drop out of Santa Clara because his parents couldn’t support him financially, so he spent two years at a junior college where he absolutely raked. Signed by an independent baseball league, he went on to win the league MVP award in 2007 while playing for the Chico Outlaws which opened the door to his career with the Red Sox, who bought his contract for one dollar.
Even with Andrews off the market, there’s still hope. After Nava hit the historic grand slam Andrews had this to say through twitter, “Have Dave Obrien pass along my best to Daniel!! Congrats on a big day that will go down in Sox history! Hope to meet him soon!”
I’m no expert in reading between the lines, but I think I know what that means, amirite?
