    That movie was probably a complete waste of time. She shoulda just called a few papers. I'm sure someone would have done it since her kid's dad is NICOLAS CAGE. That's gotta be a story somewhere.

    Bet the LA Times prep editor is happy about it. Kept him/her from getting the old and tired, "I've got a great story for you. The son of XXXX XXXX is on the high school wrestling team, isn't that interesting?" I got a call from a lady wanting me to write a story about a T-ball team because one of the kid's dad is a TV reporter. BIG FREAKING DEAL!

    Did you suggest the TV reporter do the story instead?

    What is interesting to me about this is that Nick Cage is the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, but I believe he changed his name to be sure his success came by merit rather than his name. Maybe his wife takes a different approach.

    That's not his wife. That's the mother of his child.

    I'd tell her, if Cage does Tiny Elvis for me, you got a story!

    If Studio 60 were still on, you know they'd show the show imitating Nick Cage at his son's wrestling match because Cage and Nancy Grace skits were the only ones you ever saw.

    I bet you Weston sucks at football. Nicholas Cage is a nancy-boy.

    I got an email from a dad telling us a Detroit newspaper was going to run a story on his youth team and we'd better get on the stick before we got scooped.

    On a u-9 baseball team.

    The dad wasn't Nicolas Cage, by the way.
