John Mayberry’s Agent Tries To Find Him The Mermaid From ‘Pirates’

Sep 7, 2011, 1:33 PM EDT

John Mayberry Jr. of the Phillies reportedly had his agent reach out to try and find the mermaid from Pirates of the Caribbean so he could perhaps entertain and/or date her.

This is one of the more awkward stories I’ve seen in a while, but I guess if you’ve got an agent, it can’t hurt trying to put them to work for you. Those people make good money. One might guess that work usually doesn’t include trying to find you a date with a mermaid.

The New York Post has the story, “Philadelphia Phillies star John Mayberry Jr. may be on a
streak on the field, but he still needs his agent to get him a date.
His CAA reps have been trying to hook him up with stunning actress Antoinette Nikprelaj, who played a sexy mermaid in “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

They’ve also obtained what they claim are the emails Mayberry’s people sent out, including a bio of Big John touting he’s a Stanford-educated MLB player.

Heck, I’d brag if I went to Stanford and bashed home runs too. Not sure I’d use my agent to try and track down really, really good looking women though.

Thanks to Bleacher Report’s star writer Dan Levy for the tip, who asks, “How does she only have 774 Twitter followers?
