It doesn’t suck to be David Freese these days…
This morning, Entertainment Weekly released that David Freese will appear (as himself) on a new ABC comedy entitled, “Work It.” It’s a one-time appearance and “Work It” is basically an entire series based on the movie “White Chicks” that will ultimately fail, but still. It can’t be any worse than Scott Spiezio, Adam Kennedy, and David Eckstein’s appearance on “She Spies” in 2005.
Now, we’re guessing that a grounded gentlemen like #23 won’t let it change his welcoming persona, but still, the world around him has changed a bit. Allow us to recap the life and times of David Freese. For the sake of brevity, we’ll limit ourselves to the last month.
