The (Red Sox) Dating Game

Just when I thought I had seen it all Boston Dirt Dogs broke this story. ‘Sox Appeal’, a Red Sox dating reality show. Nope I’m not making that up.

“New England’s most watched sports network, is teaming up with nationally recognized and Emmy Award winning Scout Productions (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) on Sox Appeal, a new reality show that proves there is more than one way to score at a baseball game.”

See I told you so. Sad thing is I will probably end up watching this show religiously, after all I was in at City of Palms Park for the Queer Eye Episode. Yes I stayed and watched a team of little leaguers yell at the Queer Eye guys for not knowing how to play baseball. Culminating in a 9 year old short stop drilling one of them in the chest with a ball as he tried to turn two.
No joke I thought Kevin Millar was going to cry he was laughing so hard.

Here’s the basic idea.

“Shot inside historic Fenway Park, Sox Appeal follows a series of three, two-inning long blind dates that take place over the course of 8 televised Red Sox games. The dates will be taped with cameras following one Hero dater as they meet three romantic hopefuls (one every two innings). During the 7th inning stretch, the Hero must decide who to invite to share the seat next to them for the rest of the game, but there’s still room for a strikeout as the invite can be declined. From love at first sight to the ultimate blind date disaster, the only sure thing is that they’re all Sox fans.”

It’s got guilty pleasure written all over it. Sure try and tell yourself you're not going to watch. I know you secretly watch the Duel and Next. After you finish trying to find out when they are doing casting for the show check out the full article.
