Reds Hall of Famers Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan schedule to appear on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show"

From the Reds:
On Monday's "Ellen DeGeneres Show" (airing @ 10 am on WCPO-9 in Cincinnati...check local listings) Hall of Famers Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan will appear with special guest George Clooney.

For over two years, Ellen has been unsuccessful in her attempts to persuade George to be a guest on her show.

Then in early December, actor Noah Wyle was a guest on with Ellen and suggested that the way to "catch" George would be to get some members of the Big Red Machine to be on the show.

We immediately heard about Noah's mention of the BRM and made some calls to the Ellen show.

Fast forward to this week when we got a call from the producers saying that George would be on the lot and it was time to "catch" him.

We contacted Johnny and George (who both live in CA) and was able to arrange for them to visit the Ellen's studio on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank.
I love George Clooney! Has there ever been a Clooney sighting at Great American Ball(p)ark?

Update: article here. Funny stuff.
