Yahoo: Brown: Mayberry and the Mermaid

John Mayberry(notes) will apparently do anything for a date with a mermaid.

Yes, somebody has playfully betrayed the young Philadelphia Phillies outfielder and leaked a series of emails that expose his diabolical plan to have his agent set him up with actress and model Antoinette Nikprelaj, who played an underwater seductress in the most recent “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie.

Unfortunately for Mayberry, this mermaid is taken, as she is already married and has a daughter.

Another reason for the players to lobby hard for an additional set of services from the Scouting Combine…

Just took it to Google, and, yes, she is a rather fetching young lady.

Sounds like a stalker.

People who fantasize about mermaids just haven't thought the whole thing through.

Exactly. Why can't Mayberry Jr., or his freakin' agent before he sends that embarassing email, take two seconds to Google her and find out she is married with a child.

I have no problem with this. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

Though, yeah, he should have googled her before he went through all that.

Since when does the average athlete male see either of the latter as a deal-breaker?


(Just joking, Mom.)

Amazing.

What chance does Mayberry have with a mermaid anyway, after Trout just won Minor League Player of the Year?

Everybody owes Dave a beer.

From a Freudian perspective, isn't a mermaid an analogue for the mother? Mermaids have breasts for nursing infants, but no vagina to reflect the infant's lack of sexual capability/interest...

Could make for an awkward date.

"Albanian beauty" is not a phrase you see every day.

No kidding, with the white hair and pink eyes and all.
