The new show Baseball Wives has gotten a lot of attention, at least among Pirates fans, for making the Bucs even harder to love than usual - it features the wives and exes of former Pirates Kris Benson, Jason Kendall, Nyjer Morgan and Ron Villone, and the first episode featured a couple of them behaving badly (although Villone's wife Brooke emerged largely unscathed).
Well, it gets worse. At a recent taping, Anna Benson allegedly did something so weird and crass that I'm loath to explain it here, since I use my real name when writing these. Also, she did it to Cheri Knoblauch, who's now the wife of Chuck Knoblauch, but who had a contentious romantic relationship with former Pirates star Brian Giles for several years before that.
During a recent filming, Anna Benson -- the wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson -- got into it with Cheri Knoblauch -- wife of former Yankee second baseman Chuck Knoblauch. Anna got creative, pulled out a stun gun and set it on a table in front of her in a threatening manner, then produced a 12-inch dildo from her purse and started swinging.
Yep. The early-2000s Pirates weren't much fun on the field, but it sounds like the players' nights out after the game were even less fun.
