'Queer Eye ...' crew on the pitch for Boston Red Sox game
Shock, horror! Four of the five crew members of popular Bravo TV programme 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' (QEFTST) tossed out the ceremonial pitches (Boston Globe requires registration, I'm afraid) for the Boston Red Sox game yesterday against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. It seems also that some team members of the Boston Red Sox agreed to take part in an episode of QEFTST's upcoming series, to raise funds for charity, whilst at their training camp at Fort Myers, Florida recently. The Red Sox team members raised USD100,000 in donations and corporate sponsorships to rebuild a Florida Little League team's hurricane-damaged fields. Sounds like a good deal to me. In return, the Red Sox invited the TV show's stars along for the match to help publicise their new programme season (which I hope will be aired here reasonably soon, just as the last series was). Of course there was some grumbling from the stands - one can only imagine what these kinds of people thought at the spectacle of Sir Elton John singing at Diana, Pincess of Wales's funeral some years ago.
