2010 MLB All Star Game: Celebrities Wearing St. Louis Cardinals Hats
As a precursor to the All Star Game festivities this week, Taco Bell sponsored the Legends/Celebrity Softball Game on Sunday. The event is annually entertaining because they always manage to stuff a few Hollywood starlets into tiny baseball uniforms (thank you very much, Marissa Miller).
More importantly (yes, more important than Hollywood starlets), it’s fun to observe celebrity team allegiance. Due to the very nature of living in Hollywood, a majority of the celebrities show support by wearing hats of California-based teams (e.g., Dodgers, Angels, A’s, Giants, Padres, etc.). Repping New York is always vogue, so there’s usually a multitude of Yankees and Mets hats in the mix.
Thus, it’s rare to find a strong contingent of softball celebrities rockin’ the “STL” (except for last year when the game was, well, in St. Louis).
Nevertheless, we found two this year…in addition to The Wizard who wore his Cardinals hat proud (at least, while Tony La Russa wasn’t around).
– Jon Hamm, star of “Mad Men” (born in St. Louis)
Jon Hamm rocked the Cardinals hat at last year’s Celebrity Softball Game in St. Louis and he even appeared in a St. Louis Blues commercial last year, but above all else, he’s talking to AC Freaking Slater. Awesome.
– David Nail, country music singer (born in Kennett, Missouri)
I’m no country music buff, so this is the first time I’ve heard of David Nail (on the far right, above). Frankly, that sounds like the name of an adult film star. Nevertheless, we’ll take it – albeit, the pair of Jon Hamm and David Nail is a decrease from last year’s Cardinals contingent of Jon Hamm, Nelly, Annie Wersching and Jenna Fischer. Annie Wersching *and* Jenna Fischer. Me likey.
And, one more of The Wizard taking a hack at the ole softball.
