Fake Joba Is A Phillies Fan, Goes On Howard Stern
Posted by at 10:50 pm ET 26 Comments

'Sup, bitch?By far the funniest story this weekend (or most pathetic, depending on your moral stance) was the outing of Ryan Ward, a Jersey shore resident who spent his entire summer banging unsuspecting women who were under the impression that he was actually Yankee pitcher Joba Chamberlain.   Although it sounds like a blast, there is apparently some crime called “criminal simulation” that Ryan committed.   With the possibility of jail time looming, he turned to The Howard Stern Show in search of a certain bloated attorney (mayday!) who may be able to help out.  Besides rehashing everything from Saturday’s story in the New York Post (including the part where he bedded between 60-100 women), Fake Joba also relays some new information including:

  • Fake Joba is actually a Phillies fan born in Wilmington, DE.
  • Fake Joba is going to have a face-to-face meeting with Real Joba on Friday at Yankee Stadium.  Not surprisingly, the New York Post put this together for a follow-up piece.
  • Fake Joba used to be married to the daughter of Debbie McIntyre.  Debbie McIntyre was the mistress of Wilmington lawyer Thomas Capano.  Thomas Capano, if you recall, murdered Anne Marie Fahey in 1996.  The gun he killed her with was purchased by Ms. McIntyre.  Sound confusing?  Good.
  • Fake Joba is “probably” facing jail time, but “really doesn’t care.”

Below, I’ve embedded the audio from the show so you, too, can hear how shady this guy is.  He talks about his Joba-induced conquests in a bragging tone, and shows absolutely zero remorse for anything he did.  It’s quite comical, actually.

The clip is actually three different clips edited together.  The first is the discussion when they find out the Fake Joba is in the building, the second is when Ba Ba Booey can’t find him, and the third is when he finally makes it into the studio.  Enjoy:

    “Although it sounds like a blast, there is apparently some crime called “criminal simulation” that Ryan committed.”

    I read that as “criminal stimulation”.

  • Phils Phan

    I bet I could have gotten laid more if I told girls my real name instead of “Mike Zagurski.”

  • James Beale

    Of course Fake Joba is a Phillies fan, this guy is a ‘Two Minutes With’ just waiting to happen

  • Bryan

    Nice, he’ll get even more sex in jail.

  • Chamomiles Davis

    A Philly fan born in Wilmington, impersonating a New York pitcher at the Jersey shore. I believe this is commonly referred to as the “Mid-Atlantic Superfecta.”

  • Steven

    This guy is the perfect representative of the Phillies fan base.

  • Chamomiles Davis


    Long time, no see! How have you been?

  • Steven

    Pretty good, thanks. I’ve been doing better than Cole Hamels on short rest. Remind me again, what was the point of that?

  • Chamomiles Davis

    Why, to put our best pitcher on the mound against Santa– ahhhh, you got me!

  • PhilaFan

    Steven – Hamels wasn’t on “short rest”. He had the same number of days between starts as usual. There was an off day and they just bumped him ahead of Kendrick. The point was obvious..the way Kendrick has been pitching it was an almost sure loss. Hamels had been pitching very well in his previous 4 or 5 starts and the matchup amounted to a 2 game swing. It didn’t work out, but it was the smart thing to do.


    Please, everyone, stop trying to use logic to get through to Steven. He is obviously attention-starved and he’s practically begging people to reply to him. It’s hard for him, because his team sucks and all and everything over here is much more interesting, but your attempts are futile.

  • Ryan Ward

    Glad to see the proud representatives of my work….nothing worst that trying to get Comcast in Monmouth County….I’m meeting Joba this weekend too and going to Fashion Week. Maybe be at Phils game tomorrow btw for signings and pics….bring me your chicks…..the doppelganger himself.

    Ryan A. Ward – Class of 1997 Tatnall, Wilm. DE

  • Someone Who Knows

    Trust me, coming from someone who knows this dude… he is a crazy, attention-starved, jobless, indecent idiot.

  • Another person who knows…

    Believe me Ryan Ward is an umemployed low life who is addicted to drugs, alcohol, and one night stands. The kid probably has some STD’s by now considering the sleeping around and drug use. He is a compulsive liar and FREAK. Any girl who sleeps with him is an idiot and any newspaper or radio station that gives him press is simply feeding a very sick ego. I’m surprised the real Joba agreed to meet him…I suggest he watch his back….you never know what Ward will do.

  • de_native

    For the record, Ryan Ward did not play with Kevin Mench. Ryan Ward went to Tatnall and played on a crappy team. he is a liar and drug addict. In and out of rehab over the last few years.

  • A person who kissed Ryan

    I am embarrassed to admit I kissed this insecure low-life a long time ago. The worst kisser on the face of the earth!!! There is no way he was with 60-100 women. If that absurd statement is actually true, there is no way there were any repeat customers.

  • idiot

    Kevin Mench went to St. Marks. Ward went to Tatnall.

  • Ryan Ward

Get out of that family web and go experience life and don’t let your history hurt you like your family tried to do to me….There are too many fakes, liars, cheats, ect….in your family tree and I can say I’m probably the least nutty of them all, with the exception of Ralph (miss you the most Ralph).

  • Gigi

    did anyone actually read the above garbage?

    Fact: nobody gives a shit.

  • How do you spell retard?

    As a contributing editor to the Fightins’, and a blog aficionado, it is known that no one reads long posts.
    Keep it short, unless the story has penetration, in which people will read more than 4 paragraphs.

  • copierguy

    Ryan/Steve/Joba came to DC and was running his Joba scam and I had the pleasure of meeting him. I’m a copier salesman and somehow I met Ryan while he was trying to buy a copier for a “friend”. He never said he was Joba Chamberlain, till I grabbed a drink at a bar with him and people were coming up to him, asking for his autograph.

    I’ve only met this guy once for a few hours, but everyone needs to stop hating on him. Ryan was a cool dude, who had a great hustle going on. He slept with stupid shallow chicks who just wanted to screw a celebrity. People were giving him free food and drinks, but so what, if people are stupid enough to give celebs free things, then they deserved to get scammed.

    Although, Ryan wasted my friday afternoon/evening and I sure as hell didn’t/won’t get a sale from his “friend”, I have a great story and met a great hustler.

    Ryan if you read this you owe me 15k for a copier, keep playing the game kid and F the haters.

  • What a mess!

    This guy has totally lost his marbles. He has been parading around in his #62 Yankees jersey and was last spotted pissing his pants at a bar in DE.

    Wake up and smell the coffee dude. Get some help!
