Overheard at San Diego, part 1
Seventeen years ago yesterday in San Diego, Roseanne Barr sang the National Anthem at a Padres game.
While we can’t promise you anything quite like that from any Hollywood types in town for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, we’re bringing you the most quotable things we can eavesdrop on.
At the Newark Airport terminal: "It’s tough to tell who’s going to the convention on this flight. You used to be able to tell at a glance." "Yeah, no one’s wearing comic book shirts." "Everybody’s reading Harry Potter, but that doesn’t tell you anything."
On the floor of the convention: "We’re opening up new boxes to sell books on Preview Night. In the first hour. I hope we’ve got enough to last the weekend."
Outside the hall: "I think they’re going to use those Superman bags as tents for emergency housing."
