Not to take away from Zack Greinkes masterful shutout, but a Guy Fieri imposter was interviewed on-air last night during Fox Sports Nets broadcast of the Royals game.
Guy Fieri, for those who dont know, is the Food Network host of "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives." He travels the country visiting these places. He has been to Kansas City before.
A call to PR person Rebecca Brooks confirmed it: It wasnt Guy!
The imposter gave interviewer Joel Goldbergs questions short, rude, one-word answers. He was acting like he wanted no part of the interview. He took a phone call during the interview. It was no doubt from his buddy Cletus, who said something like hey, Buford, I see you on TV!
My wifes first reaction was he looks awful! It sounded nothing like Fieri. I have seen Fieri in the crowd at various sporting events before, though.
I was determined to never watch his show again, but at least it wasnt really him. If you know who it was, shoot me an email.
I've always considered the real Fieri to be something of an imposter too, though. Until he visits Columbia's Broadway Diner and orders a "Stretch," I don't consider his show to be legit.
