It won’t be until episode 2 of “Sports Jobs with Junior Seau” that the former USC linebacker and San Diego Chargers star sports a Dodger uniform and acts as a bat boy and equipment guy for the team during his reality show series on Versus that debuts Wednesday (7 p.m., with various replays).
Now having actually found a real job — he’s out of semi-retirement again and playing with the New England Patroits — Seau sits down the left-field foul line shagging foul balls during a Dodger game against Milwaukee during the most recent regular season, ends up playing catch between innings with Manny Ramirez, and finishes by washing Matt Kemp’s car.
It’s just like Think Blue promotion.
Along the way, he’ll do everything in sports except try to be America’s next top chef. In the first episode, the newly resigned New England Patroits defensive end will work on a construction crew building the new Meadowlands stadium in New Jersey. Later, he’ll work a corner in a UFC fight, on an arena clean-up crew and on an NHL equipment team.
Let’s see if he can call an inning of minor-league baseball or work the sideline microphone at a college football game.
Or, go into the Versus board room and see if he can negotiate a new deal with DirecTV.
