Colt Brennan seems like a pretty good guy, from what I’ve seen. Generous with his time, happy to talk to fans and reporters and the like … the whole stereotypical laid-back Hawai’i thing really seems to have rubbed off on him. Sometimes, being a nice guy pays unexpected dividends, in this instance three cases of fresh pineapples.
“I signed some autographs for some people, and they sent me these to thank me, I guess,” he says. “But I’m still in a hotel for at least another week, and don’t have a kitchen.” Brennan takes two for himself and offers the rest to anyone who wants them, which turns out to be just about everyone who walks through the lobby of Redskins Park.
The only one to offer a specific method for eating them, though, is Fred Smoot.
“What you do is you cut the top off of it, take out the core, and put it in the refrigerator to get nice and cold. I used to make something called a ‘drunken pineapple,’ but I don’t do that no more.”
