Okay, this won’t apply to very many people out there, but…
Did anyone else see the ESPN SportsCenter highlights this morning of last night’s Dodgers-Phillies game?
(And if you haven’t, and you read this in time — like, immediately — then you’ll have a chance to catch up. Quick! Quick! Turn on the tube!)
Anyway, it wasn’t in the highlights last night, but this morning, they added a quick shot of a celebrity in the stands at the game — Bob Saget.
(Yeah, yeah — I’m using the term ‘celebrity’ loosely. Very loosely.)
But the shot also showed another person, to Saget’s left. A woman — youngish, with long black hair. It was presumably Bob’s daughter, because she looked exactly like him. Ex. Act. Ly. I’m talking ‘spitting image’, folks. At first, I thought, ‘Hey, that’s Bob Saget in a wig, and she’s sitting next to… um, Bob Saget. Hurrrmph?‘
(See, that’s the Scooby Doo ‘confused noise’. It doesn’t translate well into print, but you get the idea. ‘Hurrrmph?‘ ‘Hurrrmph?‘
Yeah, I’m an idiot. I know. Moving on.)
Anyway, if you saw the clip, then you know what I’m talking about. And if not, then now you know there’s a poor girl out there running around looking like her semi-famous dad in drag. Poor thing. I bet she wishes her mother had stronger genes right about now.
On the other hand, if he ever needs a body double for some sort of zany sketch comedy that involves dressing up like a woman, Bob is set. Hell, she could cut her hair and make appearances for him. Or renew his driver’s license. Or rob a bank and blame it on him. Yeah, there you go — that’d get him back for passing down his looks. Thanks, Dad.Permalink | 2 Comments
