It appears as if Marlins’ fans may have finally gotten their wish. For the better part of two years, (maybe even longer) many fans have been wishing they could ship Marlins president David Samson to a deserted island and leave him there. If the news from today holds true, Samson will be heading to the Phillipines.
According to WPLG Local 10, Marlins President David Samson will be one of the contestants for the upcoming season of Survivor, which will debut next month.
According to the report, Samson will be one of 18 contestants. The latest season will take place in the Philippines.
Here are some of the funniest reactions from the Twitterverse on the Samson “news” today:
Did Marlins President David Samson really leave his job last summer to appear on Survivor? Anyone understand what a joke the Marlins are?
