Dodgers Announce Formation of Men's Dance Team

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

**MEDIA ADVISORY**

DODGERS ANNOUNCE TRYOUTS FOR NEW MEN'S DANCE TEAM, "THE BLUE BALLERS"

Blue Ballers to team with Blue Babes to give Dodgers fans a reason to come early and leave late

LOS ANGELES — Hot on the heels of the announcement of the Dodgers' very own dance team, the Blue Babes, the Dodgers are will be holding tryouts for a complementary men's dance team, the Blue Ballers. In the tradition of the irreverent Marlins Manatees, the Blue Ballers will partner with the Blue Babes to provide between-innings comic relief at Dodger Stadium.

"Any physique is acceptable," said Blue Ballers choreographer Kaitlyn Portmanteau, who also captains the Blue Babes. "We're looking for everyday guys — guys who watch ESPN and read sports blogs. They must have lots of energy and enthusiasm and a sense of humor. Guys who can fire up a crowd even when the home team is losing."

Blue Ballers applicants must be 18 or over and must be prepared to learn a dance routine as part of their audition.

SoSG readers! Think you have what it takes to be a Blue Baller? Send your picture to sonsofstevegarvey@gmail.com and tell us in 50 words or less why you the man!

This is where Betsy gets her men's jello wrestling fix.

MR. F said...

Are these "Ballers" people that are depressed? Or people that paint themselves blue?

Josh S. said...

Clearly, the answer is they blue themselves.

Jason said...

Will the Ballers also be outfitted by Victoria's Secret? Wait scratch that. Bad image! Bad image!

If this gets me on the field and close to Vma, I'm in!

MR. F said...

I like how the "Sons" of Steve Garvey includes Kim Smith, Julie, Hunter, Vma, Darcy Richards, and.... Lasorda.

Julie said...

I don't think Lasorda was all that tech-savvy, Mr. F! But I'm tech-savvy, since it helps me party like Kaley Cuoco!

Lou Seal need not apply! We're looking for real men here!

Paul said...

Is this the only was we can get Dodgers/Yankees tickets?

MR. F said...

Vma is an Ace of Base fan. Me too!

Cyndi Bridges said...

I think this is a great idea!

rbnlaw said...

I'm wearing Blue Blockers for this one.

Oh yeah, get you some blue blockers.
Uh huh.

Josh S. said...

Hey, Lasorda's sex change is finally complete!

Vma said...

Mr F, something told me you might be an Ace of Base fan. I saw the sign!

@VMA:

I'm impressed that your profile is consistent, as a "20 year old" you would by born in the Year of the Snake. Nice attention to details, Orel, or VMA.
