John Goodman, that is. John is coming to Springfield... MSU, actually... to be receive his honorary Doctorate and address the incoming Freshman class (of which my son is one). I will be attending, but I bet there is no way in 'you know what' that I will actually get to speak to John.
I know, I know, I know... you think that I am 'somebody' because I work in radio, BUT, I'm just not that big of a deal when it comes to getting to see the celebrities that come to town, unless they are in country music.
So, why would I think John would remember me? Well, we actually worked together about 20 years ago doing telethons for Easter Seals here in Springfield. In fact, we did three years of telethons, serving as co-hosts together. His favorite professor from MSU was on the Easter Seal board and so he got John to come down and co-host. So, yes, he should remember me! But, 20 years is a long time and I'm sure he's met several females named Curly since then... right?
