Apparently Darryl Strawberry will join the cast of Celebrity Apprentice, alongside such current and relevant celebrities as Sharon Osbourne, Bret Michaels, Cyndi Lauper, Sinbad and someone named Curtis Stone.
I don’t watch Celebrity Apprentice, but I’ll certainly pull for Darryl. I’ve never gotten the chance to deal with him much, but one of the great and surreal upsides to this job is that occasionally Darryl Strawberry is just walking around the office.
Plus, Darryl will have the opportunity to redeem the good name of the 1986 Mets in the business world after Lenny Dykstra’s ignominious decline. Also, he wears some amazing suits.
Still, Sinbad is a formidable opponent. Don’t forget what he brought to the table for the Texas State Fighting Armadillos. Dude’s a competitor.
As for Sharon Osbourne, does she really count as a celebrity? I mean, isn’t the thing she’s most famous for just another reality TV show? I guess she’s Ozzy Osbourne’s wife and that counts for something, but nothing makes my head hurt more than the concept of the reality-TV celebrity. I think Bret Michaels kind of falls in that category now, too.
Rod Blagojevitch will also be on the show.
