It's Good to be Evan Longoria

Hanging out in Southern California, looking to buy some swank real estate, planning parties with the honeys, playing loads of video games, and not shaving are just some of the ways Evan Longoria is spending the offseason:
It is noon the day after Evan Longoria is affirmed as the American League's Rookie of the Year, and he is seated at an outdoor table at Smooth's on Pine Ave., discussing plans with the restaurant's owner John Morris about the party he will be staging Friday evening in the establishment's rooftop enclave.

"We might have to hand out wristbands to make sure only the people you invited are there," says Morris, who expects more than 200 people to attend.

Evan Longoria nods.

A pert waitress, Paloma Soto-Castillo, that Longoria has known since their elementary school days in Downey - he wound up going to St. John Bosco High and she to Warren High - tells Longoria she's going to bring some of her girlfriends.

"Good," he replies with a smile.

Yeah, I'd trade lives.

UPDATE: 'Duk from Big League Stew knows how to use the Google, and found us a picture of and a backstory for Ms. Soto-Castillo. Yeah, I'd call that "pert."

Love the descriptor of the waitress. Are people ever described as pert? I've only ever heard a certain female body part described as pert.

re: trading lives, is that before the changeup to the jewels, or after?

Yeah, that really stuck out, didn't it? Let's ask Mr. Webster for his view:

Pronunciation: \ˈpərt\
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle English, evident, attractive, saucy, short for apert evident, from Anglo-French, from Latin apertus open, from past participle of aperire to open

I suppose that gives us enough room to give the reporter the benefit of the doubt, but really, the guy was quite obviously scoping out her bod.

Jason: I will forego the offspeed junk to the junk in order to become Evan Longoria. Just a personal choice on my part. Your mileage may vary.

Just making sure...

I know there's always a fair degree of anti-Empire sentiment everywhere, but if I could come back as one player, I'd pick Jeter...though I'd skip the Mariah Carey "era".

Four rings. At least 6 of Maxim's top 100. $180 million contract.

Meh. I'd rather not be surrounded by people who like me because I'm famous.

Well you can still have your normal friends...plus the people who just like you because you're famous. It'd be fun for a while, that's for sure.

Michael M said...

I don't think I'd want to be bothered. I have friends that blow me off once in awhile...if they started returning my calls if I became famous somehow, I'd just be insulted.

Isn't that Rachel Ray?
