It’s good to be the king: David Freese wows ’em at Macy’s

Nov 3, 2011, 2:09 AM EDT


After his heroics in the World Series, you had to know that life was going to become very, very good for David Freese.

As a Cardinal playing in his native St. Louis, the World Series MVP might never again be forced to buy his own drink or pay for his own dinner, even if he regresses to Willie Bloomquist for the rest of his career.

From tooling around in his brand new Corvette, to hanging out on the “Tonight Show” with Justin Bieber (right), the offseason is going to be quite enjoyable for the 28-year-old third baseman.

And if you think I’m lying, check out this headline from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: David Freese wows a Macy’s Galleria crowd.

Yeah that’s right, the Richmond Heights, Mo. Macy’s was abuzz on Wednesday, and I’m not exaggerating. According to the story, fans started getting in line the night before to snag one of the 275 wristbands that gave them a chance to take part in the event. The wristband gave the bearer the right to spend “at least $50 on Macy’s merchandise,” which you have to admit is quite a deal all by itself. (Think they sold any of these?)

But of course that’s not all they got, the big payoff being a signed baseball from their hero. Not too bad when you think about it, for the fans or for Freese.

Enjoy your new-found celebrity Mr. MVP. It’s good to be the king.

    Yeah, he might even get to meet Celine Dion, or maybe if he is lucky even Avril Lavigne. Huh, Cur?

      You Americans are a cruel and unusual species. That man hit like a…like a studand you have him doing charity work meeting Bieber? Criminy man, does Bieber even know who he is? Then to suggest he meet the likes of Dion & Lavigne, my nation’s shame; is there to be no end to his suffering? What’s next? A forced meal with Brian Mulroney?

      Freese would have done the great nation of Canuckistan a favour, hell the fathers of teenage girls world wide a favour, if he’d thrown Bieber in a Nolan Ryan Headlock and Dutch rubbed Bieber’s head till the little twit was bald from ear to ear. Bring an end to all of our suffering…

        If you really want him to do you a patriotic favor, have him take out the Anne Murray museum in Springhill with a couple of rolls of burning film stinkbombs.

    What’s Bieber doing on with Leno? Shouldn’t he be with his baby?

    Why is everyone so envious and hateful of Justin Bieber? We were all awful when we were his age but he seems like a nice enough guy. I’m not sure that a 20 year old woman claiming to have Justin Bieber’s kid is a good move. I’m not sure what the age of consent laws are everywhere but an adult having sex with a 16 year old is rape in a lot of place.

      All of these young teen pop bubblegum singers take a beating from the older generation. New Kids on the Block, ‘N Sync, and now Bieber. It’s just the way it is.

        Nothin wrong with nsync! That was what the cool kids listened to during my youth.

      In a lot of places…it is NOT against the law (unless the person is in a position of authority over the 16 year old). Meaning…a teacher, a coach, a relative, etc…

    David Freese would be wise to not emulate Cole Hamels and forget off-season conditioning, training and so forth while basking in his new found fame and fortune.
