But no word on who portrayed the ball

I just noticed on IMDb that Stephen King has a listing in the "Himself- Filmography" section of his page, for his "appearance" at the 2004 World Series...

...as a CROWD MEMBER.

Then I clicked on that link, it turns out that every celebrity who was in the crowd is also listed. As well as every commentator. And team member. And four members of the "That 70's Show" cast.

What, no listing for the rest of the audience? What about the beer and hot dog vendors?

you win, 2004 World Series is the strangest web page ever, I was there but I asked not to be listed -- and, even stranger, that you know the cast of That 70's Show by name

Well, I do like the show, although correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that the first episodes were supposedly set in 1976 - so, seven seasons later, it's still the 70's? They'd better check their math, because they already shot themselves in the foot by airing the flop "That 80's Show"

the answer that the producers of M*A*S*H gave when asked about the TV show lasting much longer than the war was that you had to count each episode as a day (maybe two) and not as a week of time -- I did not know there even had been an 80's Show

Well, if they're going to start listing sports, there's a bunch of basketball, football, tennis, and golf games where they flash to shots of stars. And then there's all the tv magazine appearences. Are they going to list all them?
Jessica Simpson-TV appearences: 10 second guest shot on Inside Edition discussing her favorite lip gloss.
I know all the cast memeber of That 70's Show, too. I guess the later episodes should be called "That Early-Eighies Show"
The problem with That Eighties Show, other than the mediocre writing, was the fact that they tried to fit every trend/fad/style from the 80's into each 30 minute show.
Stan-I know I said I was through blogging for now, but I had to do one more blog that I dedicated to you. Hope you enjoy it.

I actually haven't watched much of it in the last four years or so, but I think I did catch one episode where they referenced it as 1979...as in, last season or the season before it.

Plus, unlike in "M*A*S*H", the characters clearly age, as we've seen them go through high school and beyond. With older (than 25) adults, it's much easier to mask the passage of time, as everyone generally looks the same year after year.
