Semi Pro

this is an actually email i sent out to friends on February 5th, 2007.

the subject line read SIGHTINGS. AT WORK. JUST NOW.

That’s right. All in the same room together. And I saw it.

Will Ferrell. Rob Corddry. Andre 3000. Woody Harrelson. David Koechner. Will Arnett. Andy Richter.

They are doing a table read for this movie Semi Pro.

Written by Scot Armstrong, the story is set in the world of the American Basketball Assn. and follows Jackie Moon (Ferrell), the owner-coach-player of the fictional Flint Michigan Tropics. Moon must lead his team on a desperate attempt to make it to the big leagues. Will Arnett, Woody Harrelson and Andre Benjamin have already signed up.

And today, one year and 22 days later I am going to see it.
Emily and I stalked that room they were rehearsing in and now we are going to the theater to see it. I'm very excited.
Hopefully Jackie Moon is more Ron Burgundy than Ricky Bobby.
