And the Oscar goes to ...
So I went down to ask Zimmerman, after he finished his at least 90-minute shoot for the MASN ads, what he thought of the whole thing. (Keep in mind, he had wiped his brow with his sleeve (as if he was in the fifth inning of an August game at RFK) about five times by now.)
Him: It's fun.
Him: Really. It is.
Him: No, it's pretty cool. At least I thought it was.
He got to look at one shot and said it looked good. Again, this is almost like a full Hollywood set, with a big swinging camera, etc. Should make for some cool ads.
Zimm said he beat Nick Johnson by shooting two commercials in less time than it took Johnson to shoot one (two hours). I pointed out that Nick's not exactly moving around too swiftly right now. Touchy subject, to be sure.
"How did Felipe's go?" Zimmerman asked Mark Rogoff, chief quotologist. Rogoff said Lopez's was cool, what with base running and sliding and stuff.
"They asked us who would win 'Idol,'" Zimm said. "I said Felipe. He talks all slow and stuff. I think he'd be the best."
Jon Rauch was filming his ad by now. And he looked like he was having a good time. So my theory about these guys being miserable as they were hijacked for these things was, apparently, overly cynical. (Stop it, Kasten. No cracks about that.)
With that, I leave you with tomorrow's pitchers for the Dodgers, and with the thought that the next time we touch base (horrible baseball cliche) we will have a game but hours away. Updates throughout tomorrow.
