Life Made a Beautiful Choice
In yesterday’s post about the Huntsville Stars’ new logo, I promised to soon provide my legions of readers with a scoop regarding yet another aerospace-affiliated Minor League franchise. Today, I deliver on that promise. It’s just the kind of guy I am.
The California League’s Lancaster JetHawks — so named because the region is home to Edwards Air Force Base as well as companies such as Boeing and Lockheed — unveiled their new logo last month. Now, the team has found an ideal forum in which to showcase its new look: prime-time television.
That’s right, it’s time to set your VCR (or TiVo, or whatever it is the kids are using these days). For
on Wednesday, November 14 at 10 p.m., the JetHawks’ official New Era team hat will be prominently featured in an episode of the NBC drama Life.
According to a press release sent out by the team, a JetHawks’ cap "will be prominently displayed and talked about by a cast of characters who use it as a clue to solve a crime in the episode. In addition to the JetHawks cap, the show will also feature caps from other California League teams, including the Stockton Ports, Modesto Nuts, Visalia Oaks, and Bakersfield Blaze."
Whoa! This sounds like the greatest episode of any show in the history of television, perhaps even better than that one Father Dowling Mysteries in which Sister Steve threw out the first pitch at a Peoria Chiefs game.*
For those who have been living in a cave since yet another glorious new season of television began, Life is a drama about a detective who has been released from prison after serving 12 years for a crime he didn’t commit. The show is not to be confused with "life", which is a condition that separates organisms from inorganic objects.
Once again, this special episode of Life will air on Wednesday, November 14th at 10 p.m. on NBC. I’ll be sure to watch, and you should too. Look for an analysis of the episode in this fine blog next week.
