Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez needs a date to his team’s gala on Saturday, and he’s turning to Twitter for candidates.
Hey I need a date for the gala on Saturday night, an sexy single ladies interested…..

Gio has a pretty simple checklist going: sexy, single, and 21-or-over. That’s not too much to ask for, is it?
This has to be a plan to get some attention on Twitter, because I can’t imagine an MLB player would have that much difficulty finding a date to an event.
What’s nice is that he at least has the support of his teammates:
Help Gio!! “@GioGonzalez47: Hey I need a date for the gala on Saturday night, an sexy single ladies interested…..”

If he continues to struggle to find a date, I like what one person suggested: They should raffle him off at an auction. Hey, if he’s not too embarrassed to ask for a date on Twitter, why would he feel shame about being auctioned off?
