Tonight was the Pittsburgh premiere of The Dark Knight Rises at the Byham theater..
I was invited to work the “red carpet” with David Highfield of KDKA TV2,Carly Noel and Gordon Loesch of WPXI and Sally Wiggin from WTAE 4.
Dawn Keezer of the Pittsburgh Film office is awesome and so much a part of all these amazing movies coming to town.
Here you have all these respectable journalists dressed in nice clothes, and then there is me in my jeans and Buccos t-shirt that I had on all day.
Oh well. It was brutally hot, and I am 100% sure I smelled.
A bunch of limos pulled up with people that I have no idea who they were.
Then the newest signed Steeler Max Starks pulled up for the premiere.
You would think that the Governor or Pennsylvania would be a big deal, and that everyone would want to talk to him, and that is true, unless of course Hines Ward is right behind him….then he and his grey hair suddenly became invisible.
Of course Hines had just gotten in from the New York premiere last night with his son.
He was all smiles.
That is until I put my foot squarely in my mouth when asking him a question…..damn!
Then right behind Hines….the man that was supposed to be in the movie…but could not fit it into his schedule….but we love him anyway.
Jerome the Bus Bettis!
JB and I have known each other for years and have a pretty decent friendship.
He took my stupid questions right in stride.
I desperately tried to sneak in but to no avail. I used every type of perceived influence I had….but NOTHING!!!!!
But I was able to talk to all of them about The Dark Knight Rises and you will be able to hear all of that Exclusively on Bubba Show!
