Yankee champ Nick Swisher to guest on How I Met Your Mother

nick_swisher_New_York_YankeesIf there was one guy on the New York Yankees championship team this past season who would be best described as a "character," it's outfielder Nick Swisher. This guy always had a smile on his face like he knew he had landed in a cushy spot and was happy about it. Well, he's done it again. Swisher will be guesting on How I Met Your Mother, playing a really complicated role -- himself.

On the February 1 episode (tentative date), Swisher appears at MacLaren's Bar. The episode is called "The Perfect Week" and Nick shows up at the bar, competing with Barney for the attention of the ladies. Barney, reportedly, is not thrilled that a guy with World Series swagger is on his turf.

Apparently, Swisher is used to hamming it up. He's appeared on TV before, and not only in games or post-game shaving cream attacks. Nick was on a 2007 episode of The Game, and like this gig, he was playing himself. He's good at that.

I have more faith in the guys at HIMYM finding a funny way to incorporate Nick Swisher. Last night, the hyped appearance by Fred Willard on Modern Family turned out to be a throw-away. Hardly worth writing about. Please, Bays & Thomas. Come through, fellas.

His girlfriend is Joanna Garcia, who had a guest spot last week, so it makes sense he'd stop by also.

He definitely is a moth to the spotlight. It's way more annoying when he is playing very poorly like he did during his time in Chicago.
