Welcome back to Billy Beer’s Barstool. Well, it’s Super Bowl Sunday, and you would think I would be off to a bar to eat some wings and drink some beer. Honestly, I could care less about either team. What I did care about was seeing Oscar Nominated Saoirse Ronan again before the award season was over. She was being honored at the Santa Barbara Film Festival and I figured this would be a lower key event to get her with everyone watching the big game.
Well… Things didn’t start off great. My check engine light decided to come on, so I had to pay $100 for a part to get my car up and running….FUN! When I finally did get down there, thankfully it wasn’t too crowded.
As time progressed, it got busier and busier. I think a lot of locals decided to come out after the game. The barricade ended up filling up. It was about 2 deep.
It didn’t take long, Saoirse arrived, and she went right to one end. Basically if you were in the front you got a picture or autograph if you asked.
When she got to me, I had my cast piece and a photo. She was nice enough to sign both and still took a photo (Photo cred Dori).
It was pretty laid back. I did have another cast piece that other people tried to get signed for me, but I ended up just getting the two. I was happy. Till next time.
