This is a regular series which combines my passion for trading cards with my interest in celebs.
I am featuring just one card today, but its is an important card. It is a Celebrity Jersey Card of Alyssa Milano and I am taking this opportunity to call out the lovely actress. Yeah that's right...Johngy is calling out Alyssa Milano!
Milano "writes" a baseball blog Touch 'Em All. Or should I say, she previously wrote a baseball blog. Her last post was May 4, 2010. At the top is a block which proudly lists it as one of MLB's top 100 blogs. That's a sham in itself.
Milano started her blog in 2007. Maybe she just got tired of it by now. I would argue that even during her early days, there were months when she only blogged a handful of times. MLB's top 100? Ha!
Despite being the spokesperson for a whole line of MLB wear, I couldn't find any recent photos of Milano in a Dodgers jersey. I know she can be seen wearing all sorts of jerseys, but those are simple photoshopped pictures.
I acknowledge that Milano is a long time avid Dodgers fan and attends many games. I give her credit for that, but not for being a blogger. Yet, she receives praise and MLB awards.
Believe it or not, I don't dislike Milano. I have followed her career from her time on Who's the Boss? and I generally like her. She has avoided most of the craziness that usually befalls young stars as they mature into adulthood.
I liked the idea of someone like Milano writing a baseball blog. I would have liked to see it updated on a regular basis. It seemed like a half-hearted effort which got a lot of praise before it deserved any, then sputtered onward for a few years before it was completely abandoned. What a letdown after such ballyhoo!
Before I end, I would like to extend an offer to Milano. If she would like to address this situation, I will gladly print her response verbatim! Defend yourself, Alyssa. Prove to me I am wrong. Until then, I stand by my opinion.
