Tony La Russa Got Job Offer to be Elephant Keeper
Tony La Russa is a well known animal lover, so it’s no surprise to hear about the first job offer he’s received since retiring as a manager. Appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman Monday night, the former manager made a funny.
“I actually got a job offer [Monday]. I swear. There’s a group called Performing Animal Welfare Society just outside of Sacramento,” La Russa said, “and they offered me a job as an elephant keeper.”
PAWS just announced that they’re receiving three elephants from Toronto, so maybe Tony will be responsible for taking care of them. If he does take the gig, it should be perfect for him; he’s already used to dealing with large figures and putting up with a lot of crap.
La Russa just can’t resist talking about animals, can he?
