Just another one of the many, many Hollywood careers I have helped launch.
At Louisville's Freedom Hall in late February, a fan positioned himself behind the basket at which Notre Dame conducted warm-ups. In as direct an eye line as possible, he held up a sign on red poster board that tweaked Luke Harangody, the Irish superstar with a SuperCut.
The sign read: "Bad Hair-On-'Gody."
Harangody, Notre Dame's thoroughly unassuming anchor, took notice. He left the warm-up lines. He grabbed a pen and, stunning the heckler speechless, Harangody autographed the sign. Then, blithely as he left, he returned to the court.
