I was watching a Los Angeles Dodgers special today on our local cable channel "Time Warner 101". They were showing some old opening days and different celebs throwing out the first ball.
Frankie Avalon is a big Dodger fan and is always at the games. He was there to throw out the first ball and he was talking to the different players and to Tommy Lasorda.
What was really sad was that he was "trying" to explain to the young pitcher, just who he "was". NOT who he is, but who he "WAS".
Instead of asking the young man if he'd ever seen "Beach Blanket Bingo", or asking him if he'd ever heard a song calle "Venus", he asked the "boy" if he'd ever seen the movie "Grease". The young man replied that he had heard of it but had never seen it.
Needless to say, the young pitcher still has no idea who Frankie Avalon is.
Now that's sad.
