LA is the greatest city in the world. Hands down! I love it here. You're exposed to the most insane set of circumstances if you just open your eyes, and open your mind.
That being said ... one of my first summers in LA, I went to a Dodgers game with my best friend at the time and her family. Only, we didn't have to suffer the summer sun in hot stadium seats ... oh no, we were in the dugout. Literally.
Dodger's Stadium has this super super super VIP section called the Dugout Club. My friend's dad is a really big deal in Hollyhood, so of course these were the tickets that he just happened to have.
I remember wandering around for a bit with my friend, as my hunger for curiosity is never appeased ... I don't ever get starstuck - ever ... but I have this crazy uncanny ability to recognize faces. It's a thing. If you were in a CBS made for TV movie in 1991, I will remember it. My brain processes things incredibly fast, and I just kinda go with it. That being said, I looked over - and saw a girl that looked exactly like Ireland Baldwin, Alec's daughter. (She had been in and out of the tabloids at the time, and whether you read them or not - you just couldn't escape at least knowing who this chick was.) I turned to my friend Cindy (name changed) and said dude, this chick totally looks like Ireland ... the words didn't escape my mouth before the national anthem was cued up; I turned back around and placed my hand on my heart, and looked up and saw Alec Baldwin. We were standing shoulder to shoulder both singing the national anthem. He was a lot taller than I expected.
He saw my face completely in shock, and smiled as we continued to sing the anthem. I clapped afterwards awkwardly thinking, is this really happening right now? Alec then went over to my friend's dad - and I tried to play it super cool even though my cover was clearly blown.
Cindy and I left and just grabbed our seats, which were INNCCREEDDIIBLLEEE!!!
And there ya go! I once sang the national anthem with Alec Baldwin. Dude, I'm such a 30 Rock fan!! BAHHH!!!
