Freak Celebrity Sighting

I saw John Krasinski from The Office not long ago. He was in Leatherheads with George Clooney and Clooney kept trying to get him to go one-on-one in hoops. Krasinski is about 6-3 and played hoops at Newton South (MA.) High and Clooney is about 5-11 and a complete gym rat. So the last I'd heard the bet was up to $2000. What happened? "He beat me," Krasinski admitted. "He was really good." But Clooney—coolest guy in the world—refused to take Krasinski's money. So Krasinski had an NBA standard base, pole and hoop sent to Clooney's house in Lake Como, Italy. "Now, if you're driving along in a yacht on Lake Como and you see all those incredible, elegant villas, you'll know the one with the NBA hoop is George's."
