…if you work for him.
The Belleville News Democrat of Belleville, Ill., reports that Jeff Bergman, an employee of Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions, really wanted to fly to St. Louis to see his beloved Cardinals play Game 1 of the World Series against the Texas Rangers. It just so happens that radio station 101 ESPN in St. Louis offered two tickets to Game 1 for the listener who got the biggest celebrity on the phone.
While Bergman and a fellow employee and Cardinals fan were a bit hesitant to approach Sandler, they lucked out after the star approached them to help with a computer problem. A comment Sandler made about the Cardinals triggered the two to ask him to call the radio station — to which, according to Bergman, Sandler said “get them on the phone, boys.”
Sandler did the interview, and the two went to the World Series.
Good job, Adam!
