Wade Boggs: TV star

10 Comments

Well, only if you consider the role of “dimwitted sheriff’s deputy” as a star turn:

Wade Boggs was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2005 for racking up 3,010 hits over 18 seasons, primarily as a third baseman on the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.

But Boggs’ legendary on-field performance pales in comparison to the acting chops he displays in “Swamp Shark,” the latest outlandish Syfy original movie arriving Saturday at 9 p.m. ET. As dimwitted lawman Deputy Stanley, he helps an evil sheriff (played by Robert Davi) cover up the accidental unleashing of a gigantic man-eating shark into the Louisiana bayou.

Alas that was last Saturday, the 25th.  Here’s hoping we get a rerun.

And yes, before you ask what you’re going to ask: it is a slow news day. At least the non-Dodgers stuff.
