Actually, I can relate to someone over 80 speaking to an empty chair. It's a lot like my blogging. I'm sure the Cleveland Indians also can also relate to Eastwood's gimmick. They play baseball in a stadium full of empty seats and get the same results.
Thanks Clint. Hopefully George Clooney and Morgan Freeman were watching your performance and will keep away from Charlotte. No matter the bad press, I love your movies, especially those where you talk to your horse and that's no horse shit.
