Celebrity (mis)Sightings at the All Star Game
A leisurely stroll over to the Block Party at Butler Square turned out to be a mistake as I was stopped seven times while walking the grounds by celebrity-seeking baseball fans. Four fans thought I was Brad Pitt, two knew for a fact I was Tom Cruise and one hapless fan who apparently started her day early at the Budweiser beer tent and was convinced I was Zac Efron. “But I don’t have any hair!” I pleaded. She didn’t care.
Always an ambassador of Minnesota Nice, I couldn’t say no to the fans (not that the drunk Zac Efron fan would have taken no for an answer) so the cameras clicked away while I smiled and played along. So if you see any pictures popping up on Facebook in the next few days of a confused looking Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt or Zac Efron posing with excited female baseball fans in Cardinals and Rangers jerseys or a Diamondbacks cap, or a guy in a blue striped Nike polo shirt – I don’t know either, but not that there’s anything wrong with that – the confused “celebrity” in those pictures is more than likely me. Feel free to tag and ‘share’ me.
Speaking of Budweiser, those Clydesdale horses that look so nice on commercials, they smell really bad in real life.
