On Friday, Aug 16, The FOX Sports Girls were in Detroit as part of a nation-wide bus tour, promoting the launch of the new FOX Sports network, "FOX Sports 1." Film critic Tom Santilli caught up with the girls outside of Comerica Park yesterday, to not only discuss the launch of the new network, but to pick their brain on a topic they rarely discuss publicly: Their thoughts on movies.
Be sure to see the video of this interview to the left of this column or you can see the interview here.
Joined by two of the FOX Sports Girls, Stephanie and Jenny, Tom finds out what their favorite sports-related movies are, as well as what kind of movies they would like to usually see in the theater. Perhaps most revealing of all, Stephanie and Jenny reveal who they think should play FOX Sports Detroit TV anchors, Mario Impemba and Rod Allen, if Hollywood were to ever cast a Detroit Tigers movie.
Tom is then joined by Cleatus the FOX Sports Robot in a rare interview. Tom was not able to ask him about being replaced each Thanksgiving Day Game on FOX with a robotic turkey (what's up with that?), but he did get Cleatus to reveal who he thought would win in an arm-wrestling match between Cleatus and Tigers slugger, Miguel Cabrera. Cleatus then reveals his favorite films of all time (his answers may shock you. Or not).
FOX Sports 1 is a new cable network launching everywhere on Saturday, Aug 17. Click here to find the station in your area or on your cable provider.
