We hear Beckett homed in on the party gal and opened with his best line: "Hey, you." Blown away by his sparkling repartee, Big Red responded by saying "hi," and then walked away.A girl from Michigan. Figures. She was probably holding out hope of having one of Tom Brady's babies. Brady, as luck would have it, was busy grabbing sushi with Peyton Manning. (No, that's not a euphemism -- the Herald article details their whole night, if you're interested.) But Beckett is nothing if not persistent:
"She knew who he was, but she's from Michigan and doesn't have the hero worship for the Red Sox," said our spy on the scene. "Plus she doesn't care about him being a pro athlete." ...
"He then comes up to her again - now on the other side of the bar - and starts whispering sweet nothings into her ear," said our source. "She can't really figure out what he's saying, so she says, 'Great game today. Congratulations."I love the fact that Beckett was confused by her lack of interest, and automatically assumed she must be impaired in some manner -- I'm guessing guys who have dated Alyssa Milano and Leeann Tweeden (pictured above, no reason) aren't used to being rejected by random girls in the bar. (Yes, I'm aware that there are at least three different "Blister Boy goes home alone" jokes to be made here, but we like to keep things PG here at the FanHouse.)
He responds with "Huh?" So she repeats it. And receives yet another, "Huh?"
"You. Pitched. A. Great. Game," she said.
His response: "Are you wasted?"
Her response: "No, I just got here."
"He then looked at her funny and wandered off," said our source.
