Kansas City TV station KSHB in Kansas City interviewed Royals catcher Salvador Perez. It’s the standard stuff: he hopes the Royals will win the World Series this year. He used to play a different position before playing catcher. He is close friends with his teammates. He wears womens’ perfume when he’s catching.

Wait, what?  *re-watches the video* yep. Victoria’s Secret. Chanel. You know, the usual stuff. He picked up the habit from Alcides Escobar, who also wears Victoria’s Secret perfume. And an umpire once said “You smell good, Salvy.”

I cannot express how much I love this story.

    I read somewhere on the internet… so you know its true… that men prefer the smell of cologne, and women prefer the smell of perfume. Therefore, a man _should_ wear women’s perfume if he really wants to attract the ladies.

      I thought men preferred the smell of bacon. You mean I rub bacon fat behind my ear lobes for nothing?

        Not trying to be forward or anything, but I suddenly have the overwhelming urge to nibble your earlobes.

      Women who like perfume probably also like dresses and heels, but probably not on men they’re interested in.

      Michael Sam gay joke how original. You know what would be really funny though? If you ran into him in a dark alley and tried to make fun of him.

        Actually Chris, while I understand the point you are making, there’s no reason to think Mr. Sam frequents dark alleys or prefers settling differences with violence rather than with his words, as he seems a well-adjusted chap. Philliesblow on the other hand, seems uninformed about the difference between sexual orientation and gender dysphoria. We’ve no reason to think Mr. Sam is anything other than a very masculine man, given his line of work. His being gay is a separate matter. It would be helpful to public debates if people were educated on these things, but some clearly prefer willful ignorance.

        Or anywhere in general.

      • historiophiliac - Aug 28, 2014 at 4:31 PM

        I’m guessing Sam might be the better person there.

        Do you really have to guess?

    I’d be speechless except I remember Giambi’s rally thong, so yeah…

    • chrisernst82 - Aug 28, 2014 at 3:13 PM

      I just threw up in my mouth a little. If your gonna be posting things like that you should change your name to gag reflex.

    I prefer the shape and comfort of women’s underwear, but wearing perfume if you’re a guy is just plain weird.

    • nothanksimdriving123 - Aug 28, 2014 at 4:14 PM

      Hey, Nuke LaLoosh wore lingerie and he did pretty well.

    One of my girlfriends uses those body sprays from “Victoria’s Secrets” and I know I am lik a Pavlov dog as soon as I notice she went to take a shower and comes out “wearing” one of those fragances.

    I imagine it would be very dificult for me to try and bat a ball if suddenly I recognize that scent coming from the catcher… no no no no no.

  8. historiophiliac - Aug 28, 2014 at 4:32 PM

    Victoria’s Secret. Ugh.

    No Monty Python Lumberjack Song references, Craig?

    Son, I am disappoint.

    This is some Nuke Laloosh shiz. Does he wear garters to help his eye lids breathe?

    Something stinks. But it’s not the Royals.
