Cody Asche is a romantic at heart
Molly Eichel, Daily News Staff Writer Posted: Thursday, April 3, 2014, 3:01 AM
JENNIFER Aniston was Cody Asches gateway drug.
At first, the Phillies third baseman started watching Aniston movies with his roommate at the University of Nebraska.
It was some manly men who just enjoyed some romantic comedies together, Asche said.
But then Asche started watching a whole host of romantic comedies and weepies, without even the promise of wooing ladies in the process. Asche is engaged to Angie Albers, who shares Asches love of the romantic genre.
In addition to Aniston, Asche loves him some Nicholas Sparks. When I ask for his all-time top five, he lists two Sparksian adaptations - The Notebook and Dear John (But I dont like the ending to that one, dont even talk to me about it) - and The Break-Up, Crazy, Stupid, Love and The Vow. Later in our convo, Asche tells me he wants to revise to add Safe Haven, another Sparks joint.
Despite the affinity for Sparks, Aniston would still be his leading lady.
He added, Ryan Gosling could be my co-star.

Boyz to Qatar
What better way to celebrate Qatar Airways new flights from Philadelphia International Airport to Doha than Boyz II Men? The Boyz will take a break from performing in Vegas to usher in the new airline at a gala tonight at the Ritz-Carlton.
Naked and Philadelphian
Lovers of trash television are already familiar with Discoverys Naked and Afraid, in which two people are dropped into the exotic wilderness with nothing, not even the clothes on their back, for 21 days.
Sundays episode, airing at 10 p.m., features former Philly cop Len Cass Cassidy making his way through the wilds of Belize.
Cass, a former Army man who served in North Phillys 26th District until 2007, was inspired by his wife to go on the show.
So over a case of Yuengling and Lionshead, I made some [audition] videos with my friend who I met in Iraq [to show off my skills], doing sit-ups, showing my marksmanship, things like that.
Unlike most participants, Cass got along with his partner, a hippie type named Shannon, in part because of his history as a member of the PPD.
The show puts your body through the rigor, but its the mental stuff. As a soldier, you get a taste of the mental stuff, but when you show up to a scene and everyones yelling and youre thrown into these situations, you have to think, How do I get to the root of the problem?
The first thing Cass did when he got home from Belize? Hug his four children, ages 10, 8, 6 and 4. Maybe going home wasnt such a respite after all.
Its quieter in Iraq than my house, Cass joked.
