The Quotes:
From: Jeff Davis Subject: Re: Day in the Life Virtual World Premier Date: Sat, February 2, 2008 4:40 pm Stuart: Wow! What a time machine. Great! I remember making this but only saw it once, I think at staff banquet. There was no sound, right? Didn't have any on my computer, video taping has spoiled us so. Behind the scenes? I was supposed to get that baseball in my mouth for the line drive take. There have been times in life when I have been considered to have a pretty big mouth. But it was hard chomping down on that ball. Finally got it to stay put long enough to shoot the scene. I haven't opened that wide since, not even for the dentist. I believe I got the honor of being in that scene by being Athletic Director that year. The previous year I had pioneered Basketball as an activity. I wanted to play as much as possible and the activity was a hit. It WAS the summer of 1970, by the way. I got to staff training and it was announced that I was "promoted" to Athletic Director, moving onto the baseball field. Mac Otten was closing in on a Basketball scholarship at forward for the University of Toledo. I later saw him on TV playing Big Ten ball. He got to run the basketball activity that summer, due to my "promotion." Oh well, right field wasn't so bad . . . This was great. Is there anyway to post it where we can see it full screen? Everyone in it was in the best shape of their lives. Incredible, Jeff Davis
