You really do not need any skills anymore to be a "celebrity"...

It's the same as being called "Hero" the word has lost meaning.

Cute kid but seriously, a celebrity? Come on people, seriously? I mean I know to become a celeb has become extremely low standards lately. Ranging from Paris Hilton who is just known to have inherted a lot of money and have sex vids over the net yet she gets invited to the VMA awards, MTV movie awards, etc. Gets her own reality TV show and the countless others like her.

Well actually IMO this dude is a step up from paris hilton. I'd rather him and his wife and kids get there own reality TV show but still. Getting famous because you caught a baseball and your daughter threw it away? I have lost all faith in society.

I love stories that make me smile, this one is great. Tells you a lot about the dad too, great stuff. Love it. Keep Kanye, Serena and all that other shit off my TV, these are the people we should be watching and learning how to behave from.

It's the little things that count.

Got to agree with you. This dad giving her kid a hug after she threw that ball away gives me a feel good feeling.
Put a nice family on T.V. is far better than all the crap thats out there now.
Mind you, I suppose John and Kate plus 8 probably started out that way...

And since when does "feel good"-tv sell?

The fact that Big Brother is in its 11th season is proof that the opposite is true...

Great story? Absolutely R=UP Celebrity status great? Meh, but hey, why not let something as pure as that moment have its 15 minutes of fame? We give that 15 minutes away often enough to people that truly don't deserve it.

Maybe more people will consider him a Celebrity if he signs a $Million National Ad campaign featuring himself and his daughter, for say a company like Fisher Price Toys.

If I was an agent, I'd be knocking at his door right now. Think about it, you got the all American dad, his adorable little girl......

I can see it all now, :roll: The New Generation Nerf Sports Package. Dad and daughter playing on the grass throwing some Nerf's, around. :lol:

That's cute and all. But it really doesn't demand an interview.

Bill Clinton's around. interview him. Oh wait, yeah, Jon Stewart is doing that.
