OK, so last nite I went to see Bill Cosby at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore… And in case there was any doubt in any of your minds, he is the MAN! 68 years old, still writing new bits. He’s amazing. And if you’ve ever had the chance to see him live, you know there’s no fanfare involved. No opening act. No announcer… just an hour and 45 minutes of funny. I mean, I was looking for something in my purse and people started applauding, I looked up and he was on the stage sitting in his chair… We should all be so humble. Cosby does everything a stand-up comic isn’t “supposed” to do. He tells long stories, he sits down for nearly the entire show, yet you’re still hanging on to every word he says. That kind of charisma, humility, longevity is so rare… I just hope I’m around long enough to meet him one day :>) He’s my hero.
I understand now how people become alcoholics… And if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan and you watched tonite’s game vs. Dallas, you understand too… I’m a Philly fan… die hard… and right now I feel like curling up on the sofa with a bottle of JD and crying myself to sleep. Love McNabb… Love him… And I admire him for playing thru the pain, but he’s gotta get healthy b/c his injuries are hurting the whole team… Shoot, I think I have a sports hernia now… I know this isn’t really “news” but I just wanted to post this so that when I make it big and the producers of my E! True Hollywood Story are trying to determine the root cause of my reckless, self-destructive behavior, y’all can point them here and let them know that Monday Night Football is to blame.
