I'm going with Paul Sorrento, because in 1990 at some random party/bar, I distinctly remember trying to convince some girls that he was my roommate, but he had failed to make the team, so I got to live in this great place alone. I felt it was especially ingenious, because he wasn't really on anyone's radar, and if she ever checked she would find out that really was some random Twins minor leaguer who was close to the majors and wonder if I had been telling the truth.

I did not go home with her. I know. You're shocked.
