Rockford Woman Shares Funny Story About Being in an ESPN Meme
After seeing a Rockford Art Deli shirt on HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" Sunday night we want to hear your stories about 15-minutes-of fame. We know many of you have had them, whether being spotted in the audience on a tv talk show, or a sporting event, or any other sort of televised event. We received some great stories but one of them left us wanting more. It comes from a woman from Rockford who shared her story about making it on ESPN.
Kelly and her mom were at an Iowa Hawkeye game that didn't end so well. ESPN had fun with this by panning the crowd in search of visually disappointed Iowa fans. They struck gold when one of their cameras captured Kelly and her mom's visual defeat, resulting in an opportunity to create the perfect meme.
Kelly does a better job telling her story.
Win or lose, Kelly proves she has a good sense of humor when sharing her 15-minutes-of-fame moment. And, we know there are more folks who've had some sort of 15-minutes-of-fame like maybe you were an extra on an episode of a tv serious or you made it into the background of a movie. Whatever your story is we would love for you to share it.
