Are you cuckoo for Coco Crisp? This might be the job for you.

The internet is full of posers.  People working with stolen identities.  So when I first caught wind of this story I thought FAKE.  Let's see what you think.

Here's a recent ad from Craigslist
Yeah... right.  Coco Crisp, a Major League Baseball player for the Oakland A's, who is making good money, has turned to Craigslist to go looking for a personal assistant... sure.  Oh, and if you want the job you must be FEMALE and along with your resume send a PICTURE... OK.   This is starting to sound like a bad pickup or a setup for a segment of Dateline NBC.

I was ready to laugh this one off.  While in the process of tweeting (That's using Twitter for those of you that don't know, and for those of you that do know and tweet, you should follow us if you don't already at  )  I thought I'd check out Coco Crisp's Twitter page.  Surely he would have something to say about this ridiculous hoax.   Here is what I found.
Here, let me make that top tweet bigger for you.
As the British would say, I was gobsmacked.  Unless Coco is in on a joke, all of this is for real.  

So for all of you... wait... strike that.. for all of you females (sorry guys, its his ad, not mine) that have dreamed of being a ball players personal assistant, (but probably not as fanatic as Annie Savoy) if you live in or would be willing to live in Southern California and you don't mind scheduling, shopping, cooking and some light cleaning, Coco is looking for you.
