Cruise with Major League greats. And Stan Bahnsen.

Jan 27, 2010, 12:55 PM EDT

All I ask is for a tall ship and a star to steer her by! Well, at least a couple stars, according to USA Today:

Good news, baseball fans: MSC Cruises says it will hold another round of ‘baseball greats’ voyages next winter in the Caribbean. The
seven-night, baseball-themed sailings, to be headlined by well-known
players from decades past, will take place on the 3,010-passenger MSC
Poesia out of Fort Lauderdale . . . The line has yet to announce the list of players participating in next
winter’s voyages, but the current trips feature such former Major
League names as Ken Griffey Sr., Vida Blue, Cookie Rojas and Amos Otis.

Other players Tony Oliva, Jim Fregosi, Rennie Stennet and Rico Petrocelli. Oh, and former Yankees-White Sox-A’s-Expos-Angels-Phillies pitcher Stan Bahnsen, who is booked on every single cruise (all the others are one-offs).  I can only assume that Bahnsen is actually employed as the ship’s purser or something and the fact that he’s a former ballplayer is just a coincidence.

I’d be inclined to set a course for adventure on one of these bad boys if it weren’t for two things: (1) Jay at Fack Youk’s story about almost dying during his semester at sea scared the tuna salad out of me this morning; and (2) I’d probably get stuck with the awful, dramatic storyline involving a complicated May-December romance with Cookie Rojas, while everyone else would get the comedy storyline with Vicki, Issac Amos Otis and everyone else.

    Rookie of the Year, 20-game winner? Tough crowd. I’d be glad to sit around and hoist a few beers with Bahnsen.

    I hear Isaac makes a mean “Reggie Jackson Martini” and has been know to stow him aboard from time to time. Hilarity ensues.

    Oh jesus you’ll not belief that. My stupid kitty simply just farted on my ankle!? I mean what is the problem with this!? I give food to this thing and I get this in return. I yet can not really belief that. Anyway, you have got a few useful information there in your post. I knew Google will take me to some helpful stuff today :). Alright need to search that animal now! Have a good day you all!
