When he’s not writing autobiographies which cast him in a somewhat poor light and when he’s not coaching Team Italy, Mike Piazza is gettin’ his coupé dessous and coupé dessus on. Mike Axisa of CBSSports.com pointes this out for us, from the press release for Miami City Ballet’s production of George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue:
Piazza will not be dancing, leaping or catching ballerinas. But he will be sporting a 1920’s-era gangster costume, throwing out a few lines Al Capone-style and then sitting back and watching the stage come alive with dazzling dance routines, a gorgeous Strip Tease Girl, a tap-dancing Hoofer and the colorful Ladies of the Ballet.
He’s doing it for his six year-old daughter who is a ballet student.
Mookie has taken ballet for several years. I wonder if she’d want me to do this? She’s home sick from school today. I’ll go ask her. Be right back.
Takin’ that as a “no.”
