Jack Wilson Proudly Reps Donuts
I guess when you’re the Pittsburgh Pirates, stuck in the middle of a 15 year losing streak, and your fans are about to walk out on you, it doesn’t take much to get you excited. That’s kinda how I would categorize the following news. From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Pirates shortstop Jack Wilson was the star of a news conference yesterday.
He was picked by Franco Harris and Pittsburgh-based R Super Foods to have his picture adorn packages of Super Donuts and Super Buns.
“Having a donut box with your face on it is awesome,” Wilson said.
I’ve heard of players being excited about being on a cereal box — a Wheaties box to be specific. Now that’s cool. But a donuts box? That just leaves me scratching my head. Unless there are some things about Pittsburgh I just don’t understand. Which is entirely possible in itself. I don’t even know what else to say. Congrats perhaps?
