Yeah, another article on on the fans lining up at Grauman’s… But I had to blog this segment:
Sarah Sprague, 31, was growing testy as she tried to say the same thing to a sports reporter calling from Detroit.
“Yeah, I know it’s just a movie,” she said. “You’ve been reporting on sports, and you ask me whether I have a life?”
Then she asked the reporter if he wasn’t wasting his life covering 40 Tiger baseball games this year, referring to the team as “that losing cause.”
Detroit’s most famous sports reporter is Mitch Albom of the Free Press, known for saccharine writing and, more on the point, an article from 1999 about how Star Wars geeks need to get a life. Because everyone knows sports fans are always sane and dignified.
