John Rocker will be a featured guest on Monday morning’s “Cold Pizza” (ESPN2). Presumably, Rocker will visit Bristol to promote his upcoming appearance on Spike TV’s “Pros & Joes”, a series in which everyday schmucks get to test their skills against an array of washed up talent including Bill Romanowski, Dennis Rodman, Jim McMahon and Bill Goldberg. Spike’s press release doesn’t specify if Goldberg is appearing as a former Atlanta Falcon or a former professional wrestler
My first reaction upon learning that a cable network had commissioned a series featuring Rocker and Rodman was that someone must’ve found out Will Leitch is reporting to Nielsen.
Spike will have Rocker pitching BP in Bryant Park tomorrow afternoon. I don’t suppose it has occured to them that a photo opportunity on the 7 train could easily be arranged.
