Reporter Julie Tristan is becoming known this across the country, and it’s not for a good reason. The host of KSDK’s “Show Me St. Louis!” did a feature last week on Cardinals third baseman David Freese riding the new Mr. Freeze ride at Six Flags St. Louis. For some reason, Tristan took the opportunity to shamelessly hit on the the ballplayer repeatedly.
Some of her choice lines included:
“We’re going to hit on you, heavily.”
“I think what everyone wants to know is … do you have a girlfriend???”
“Do you prefer blondes or brunettes?”
“Last question: Do you think we’re pretty?”
“Isn’t he just the cutest? We look perfect together!”
Tristan of course capped it all off by saying of Freese, “I love you.”
Videos of women asking out professional athletes are cute when they involve a service person and a choreographed invite to a military ball, not an actual TV reporter. A word of advice for Tristan after that pathetic display: Express your crushes on your personal time, not when you’re supposed to be a professional on camera. That was disgusting.
Big thank you to Deadspin for sharing the video.
