So when I was blessed enough to be invited back to Hollywood for the Million Dollar Arm World Premiere, I was absolutely stoked. I think I may have done a happy dance. Okay. I totally did a happy dance. My teen rolled his eyes at me, and my littles laughed and pointed. Oh well. I didn't care. They can call me cheesy all they want. I was heading to HOLLYWOOD!
Anyway, this premiere was something a little different than your typical red carpet event. Rather than being a glam red carpet affair, it was a laid-back, casual tailgate party with a bright green carpet that resembled the well-kept grass on a major league baseball diamond!
It was amazing watching this group of very skilled pitchers compete for the prize of a lifetime. The suspense was terrible, and I even caught myself holding my breath as I watched, rooting for the contestants. I SO wanted to see someone snag those top honors!
One contestant, Josh Dahl of Arizona, topped 95MPH! While he didn't walk away with a million dollars, he did get the opportunity to sign on with THE JB Bernstein's agency, Seven Figures Management. Who knows? In the long-run, this may be even more lucrative than the potential million dollar prize!
If you don't want to wait till the 16th to check out this amazing film, you just might be in luck!
"Million Dollar Arm" will be sneaking in theatres this Saturday night, 5/10 in over 500 theatres across the country before it opens wide on 5/16. How cool is that?!
