It took 72 hours for the saga of Walter “Sonny” Kowalczyk to become insufferably tedious.
He’s the guy who caught A-Rod’s 500th home run ball and has turned into a celebrity. The tabloids are chasing him like he has the secret of life in his back pocket.
In the latest twist, Sonny wants to get the advice of WFAN’s Mike and the Mad Dog on the air. Unquestionably, he’ll be on. I’m sure he’ll be on television before too long and hold a press conference, too. Is this that important?
The Daily News tracked down his brother. Get this:
Brian Kowalczyk said his brother has had his share of tough breaks, like when he got fired as a probationary Mercer County, N.J., sheriff’s officer for falling asleep in a courtroom.
That’s a “tough break?”
The News also reports that he is “terrified to walk the streets.” The Post said he was in Manhattan treating his family to dinner. Maybe he was terrified on his way to dinner.
Sonny, if you’re out there, ask A-Rod for $50,000 and the Yankees for a signed Joba Chamberlain jersey. Then go about your life and try to stay awake. But get out of the news, my man. No good will come of it.
