Jerome Bettis Picks Minor League Baseball Over DWTS

Sorry for getting your hopes up over The Bus possibly starring in the upcoming edition of Dancing With The Stars.

It isn’t happening. Here’s the official list. Jason Taylor, for whatever reason, is the NFL-entry. Stupid NY Post…lying to my face and whatnot.

However, the one-time Miller Lite spokesman/bar and grille entrepreneur/Detroit native has shifted some of his focus towards his part in an ownership group of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (the former Durham Bulls), a low-level minor league baseball team. The ownership group also includes Eddie “Married-to-a-Member-of-SWV” George.

Now, JB already has experience dealing with minor league baseball, as he is part of an ownership group of the Altoona Curve and the State College Spikes.

In looking at the Pelicans’ Wikipedia page, it appears that a good number of current and former Atlanta Braves played for the Pelicans in the past (since the team is affiliated with Bobby Cox’s major league squad). The list includes Rafael Furcal, Jeff Francoeur, Marcus Giles, Wilson Betemit and the Pirates’ very own…ADD LaRoche.

The Curve, the Spikes…now the Pelicans. What’s next for The Bus…the Lancaster Barnstormers? I don’t think Clipper Magazine Stadium could handle it.
