KC’s reaction to the premiere last night was almost comical and in ways very sad. The local TV media thought they were Entertainment Tonight. Fauning over Ford and all the other celebrities…which were in fact, just baseball players. The spectacle just re-inforced the cow town image that we work so hard to get rid of or at least downplay.
And the local media bought the “lie” that Ford and the other stars of the movie were going to The Negro League Museum today. Must have come as quite a shock when they left last night to get to NY to appear this morning on “the View”.
It is okay, KC, to appear to be blasé about somethings. We have seen celebrities before and we will see them again. You can act like you have been in the “End Zone” before to be labor the sports clichés that flew hot and heavy on local media yesterday…..
