How Women Throw Themselves At Pro Athletes (And Vice Versa): A Publicist ExplainsAnonymous PR Guy6/08/12 2:59pmFiled to: The HandlerAthlete run-insLoveSexNewsAnonymous pr guyTopPrPublic Relations844EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkI'm a publicist, and I've worked with high-profile athletes for nearly 15 years. Olympic gold medalists, NFL All-Pros and Super Bowl champions, MLB All-Stars and World Series champions, even an NBA player on a championship team once. I'm not really a nightlife guy, but there are times when I need to accompany clients to clubs, concerts, after-parties, whatever. When I first started, I remember my mouth dropping at every attractive woman who approached one of my clients, and at the things they would say to them or offer them. Now, I don't even bat an eyelash. The only reaction you may get from me is a laugh if it's an approach I haven't heard before. I've seen women slip their numbers to my clients while their boyfriends weren't looking. I've seen women ditch their boyfriends in the bar just for a shot at one of my clients—and I've seen my client shoot those same women down just to laugh at them.I write this after seeing last week's story of Terry Francona trading pictures with some guy's girlfriend. What this boyfriend needs to know is this: Most likely it was your girlfriend who approached him initially. The odds are that she escalated what was happening. I speak from experience.
