bodyguard – Shoot Jennifer Lopez in the Backside with a Rocket Launcher

On 21 December, 2006 the star center fielder for the NY Yankees, Johnny Damon, announced the formation of the Professional Ballplayers Gaming League. The PBGL will make it possible for video game buffs and baseball fans to play online with and against some of their favorite pro ball players. The PBGL has chosen Microsoft’s Project Gotham Racing 3 as their initial gaming venue.


Now we think this is a great move, and a win-win situation that will benefit both pro baseball and online gaming, as well as be a lot of fun for everyone involved. Our minds however, couldn’t help but wander a bit as we considered the possibilities. If this is a success (and we believe it will be), talent management and Public Relations personnel of the Stars, are going to push the envelope.


Online racing against pro ballplayers will be a blast, especially for their fans, but what about online racing against Dale Earnhardt Jr, and his fellow NASCAR luminaries? Now you’re talking. Madden NFL 2007 is a great game as it stands, but what if NFL fans could log on to an online match, and play alongside or against their favorite pros during the off-season? Besides being a huge amount of fun, it gives starving sports fans a fix, while they’re waiting for the season to resume. Selling a ‘seat’ to these games would be a great way to benefit charity causes, and at the same time, and at the same time, satisfy Public Relations and talent managers’ needs to keep their clients in the Public Eye.


Pro wrestling just seems like a ‘natural’ for this. Current games have likenesses of the top wrestlers in the game. Additionally, gamers can create characters to suit their preferences. What kid would not be talking and beaming for months, if his ‘Og the Terrible’ pinned ‘Andre the Giant’ in an online charity event? And then there’s UFC. A second-tier sport like UFC would benefit greatly from the exposure.


Which brings us to Hollywood. We have heard about Hollywood LAN parties for years, but what if they took it online? Tinsel Town is savagely competitive when it comes celebrities struggling to maintain their ranking. Charity events are commonplace for the Stars. We are pretty sure a celebrity online game event would be enormously popular. But not racing. We want Halo.


Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to stick a plasma grenade on Vin Diesel’s face, or run over the ‘Rock’ with a warthog. Justin Timberlake wouldn’t stand a chance. We know that our fiancee, give a choice between a diamond bracelet, or shooting jLo only in the butt, 5 or 6 times with a rocket launcher during a deathmatch, would have a hard time choosing.


It’s going to be a blast!
