While Ellen DeGeneres was crashing Twitter last night with “The Selfie of the Century,” we here at Sports Blog Movement were more taken with the eerie resemblance between NASCAR legend Richard Petty and Matthew McConaughey’s character from “Dallas Buyer’s Club” which netted him the Oscar for Best Actor.
That wasn’t the only sports-related fun from last night’s Academy Awards. Many people don’t know that Chicago White Sox’ slugger Adam Dunn was not only an extra in “Dallas Buyer’s Club,” but he put up some of the money to make the picture.
Speaking of the White Sox, the best non-selfie part of the night night may have been when Ellen DeGeneres pissed off Liza Minnelli by mistaking her for a female impersonator. This only led us to believe that Liza in her
pre-op post-op inexplicable condition could pass for one of those computer-generated simulations of what White Sox manager Robin Ventura would look like if he went all “La Cage Aux Folles” on us.
