STUFF: You’re just like Bob Costas, except Latin and pretty.
CELINES: They call me Miss Major League Baseball. I’m the only woman on the field, wearing high heels and a miniskirt and asking questions like “What do you sleep with?” and “What was your best sexual experience?” My job is to show the fans the other side of the players.
Let’s talk in sports metaphors. What was your worst time at bat?
Just being in bed with my ex-boyfriend and my mind was somewhere else. It was toward the end of the relationship, and I felt like I couldn’t take it anymore. I have to feel passion to be with a man. Something has to motivate me.
What motivates you sexually?
Sometimes outdoor places motivate me more. I haven’t done it in a plane. That’s my fantasy. Maybe you could do it in the last row of a five-hour plane ride when everyone is asleep.
We’ll never choose bulkhead again. Are baseball players also good lovers?
Maybe some of them, because of their age, but not because of their job. As lovers, they are very passionate.
Have you interviewed the pride of Boston, Pedro Martinez?
I’ve interviewed Pedro twice. We danced meringue on the field. He’s a natural-born meringue dancer—typical Dominican man.
Are there any players out there who are just playas?
Some think they are smart and say, “So, you’re not from Philadelphia. Do you want to go to this nice Italian restaurant?” Get to the point and tell me what you want. I just say, “Let’s do the interview and bye.”
OK, but if you change your mind, we’ve got lots of spaghetti and pamphlets about the Liberty Bell back at our place.
