Just a mindless tidbit. Ron Howard and Tom Hanks were at the game this afternoon. Looks like Ron Howard is becoming quite the Sox fan since his cameo at spring training last May.

Hanks was wearing a Tigers cap, but who knows if he's really a fan or if he was just doing the "fit in with the home crowd" thing.

Tom Hanks was a frequent visitor at Comiskey Park in the early 90's along with John Lovitz and Madonna when they were filming 'A League Of Their Own' in Indiana.

Hanks, by the way, is from Oakland and is a devoted A's fan. He sold peanuts at the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum during the A's dynasty years in the early / mid 70's.

Hanks has been on a park tour for about the last week. He was in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and I think Cincinnati before Detroit. Who knows? Maybe he'll be at the game tommorow night.

I think Howard is on the tour with him.

Anyone know if he can bat leadoff and play a decent leftfield?

Maybe they are going to do some baseball movie. I dunno, just grabbing at thin air here folks.

On XM Radio Home Plate this morning they mentioned that Hanks is on a tour of all 30 of the MLB parks in honor of his 50th birthday. They mentioned his friends Ron Howard and Dennis Miller were accompanying him. Maybe someday if I'm lucky . . .

I went to the Mets/Reds game on Wednesday and they were there. They even waited out the massive 2 1/2 hour rain delay as well (I did too:cool: ).

Maybe they are doing a movie called "The Guillen Code"...

...hope it's better than their last effort.
