The end of an era for Jared is here....
chris mens journal
I meant to post about this before, but it kept getting shoved aside for other things! Plus, I don't know if anyone but me will nerd out about it.

But, alas...in a few short days, Columbus Ohio's connection to one Jared Padalecki will be coming to an end. No, not *me*, silly. But the new stadium for the Columbus Clippers (our local Cleveland Indians farm team), Huntington Park, will be opening in a few days. Their old stomping ground, Cooper Stadium, where JPad came and filmed a movie here a bazillion years ago, will now just be sitting empty, I guess. I think if they haven't decided what to do with it by summer, it'll be torn down.

So, it's bittersweet, because everytime I'd drive past Cooper Stadium, I'd always have a little internal squee moment, picturing Jared sitting in the stands in his little Columbus Clippers hat.

So, for old times sake, here's Jared at the old Cooper Stadium:

Awww, baby!Jared makes me smile!! Though it sucks about your city losing the connection to him. :(

Heheh--he was so wee back then! LOL!

And, if I thought Jared would remember making the movie or being in Columbus, it would make me sad, but I think it was kind of a bit part so he probably doesn't even remember it. But it was always kind of neat to say, "Hey, Jared made a movie there!" when I'd find myself in that neighborhood.

Although, don't get me wrong--the new Huntington Park is super nice...we just need Jared to visit and sit in one of the seats so it'll be the same! LOL!

I have this movie on DVD but I haven't watched it yet. Is he in it a lot?

And I'm so sorry that your connection will be gone. I'd hate that too if I lived there.

Honestly, I dunno--I've never seen it! I know, that's silly, since it's about my town, right? But I think Jared is just in it for a little bit--I think it's mostly about the baseball player guy and Jared plays some kid he works with at an auto shop or something.

I guess this just means Jared will have to come back to Columbus to make another movie! LOL! Not that we have a booming film industry here--I think that and Traffic are probably the only movies that acutally have filmed here! LOL!

You know, my brother and sister-in-law live close to Columbus and my sister-in-law is a vet in Columbus. I may have to pop over and say hi to you the next time I visit them!

You should! Nobody ever comes to visit me in Columbus!! It's not as boring of a city as it seems! LOL!

But yeah, if you're ever in the area, let me know and we can have lunch or something. If it's planned out enough ahead, maybe we can get faninohio to come up too--Cincy isn't that far away!
