Say what you will about Bobby Valentine and his inability to hold a job in professional baseball, but the man clearly has a sense of humor. Valentine’s career with the Boston Red Sox lasted about as long as most of us expected and went about as well as we would have imagined, so he decided to take a safer job as the athletic director at Sacred Heart University this year. It would also appear that he is making a few bucks from CBS Sports.
When you have been fired as many times as Bobby V. has, it becomes a punchline. And what do companies do with punchlines? They turn them into advertisements, which is why CBSSports.com has decided to feature Valentine in a fantasy baseball commercial. As you can see, the advertisement is dedicated to Bobby V. basically heckling himself for being fired so frequently throughout his career. It’s hilarious.
“I know, I’m fired.”
Talk about having no shame in your game. Valentine may say stupid things that inhibit his ability to land new jobs, but he still has his marketability.
