i’m watching “pride of the yankees” on tcm, all about lou gehrig. it was made in 1942, and gary cooper is playing the part of lou gehrig.
at one part i glanced at the tv and this guy came in while eating a hot dog and drinking a beer and i thought “hey, that guy must be babe ruth!” someone then said to him “hey babe, was that home run yesterday #62 or #63?”
a little while later, dad came home from his trip and i was telling him about the show, and i saw babe ruth on tv again and said to dad “i think that’s supposed to be babe ruth.” dad replied with “that IS babe ruth!”
does this mean i can’t make fun of bruno_boy anymore for “that looks like patrick stewart” / “dave, that IS patrick stewart!”?
i don’t know why i didn’t think of that, especially since i’ve already got a movie with babe ruth playing himself. 😛
