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

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

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?"

Flyers draft Samuel Ersson with 143th overall pick in 2018 NHL draft

So the Flyers snared a goalie after all.

The one position general manager Ron Hextall wasn't certain to touch became addressed in the fifth round of Saturday's 2018 NHL draft. With the 143rd overall pick, the Flyers selected Samuel Ersson, a Swedish netminder.

The 18-year-old was the seventh-ranked European goalie by NHL Central Scouting and possesses nice size at 6-foot-2, 176 pounds.

Playing Swedish junior hockey last season, Ersson posted a 2.53 goals-against average and .920 save percentage in 40 games for Brynäs IF J20. He also appeared in one SHL contest for Brynäs IF — Oskar Lindblom's former club.

Ersson joins fellow Swede Felix Sandstrom in the Flyers' system stocked with goalies, including Carter Hart, Alex Lyon, Anthony Stolarz, Kirill Ustimenko and Matej Tomek.

The Flyers have three more picks Saturday — 174th overall in Round 6, and 190th and 205th overall in Round 7.
