Part of my job is to fact-check every article before it heads to print each week. I often hit on some fun and/or intriguing things out there in webspace.
In this coming Thursday's issue, John Hazlehurst makes reference to mayoral candidate Buddy Gilmore's Super Bowl XIX halftime singing performance with the Tops in Blues.
I went hunting and dredged up this 1985 video of that show.
I couldn't find Buddy (granted, he's got 25-plus years on him now), but I rather enjoy imagining him as the one of the pirates near the three-minute mark, or, even better, as the astronaut who flies around the stadium about halfway through the 13-minute clip.
If anyone out there spies Buddy (or perhaps, Buddy, you could find yourself for us?), leave a comment.
