Chris Bosh photobombs Matthew McConaughey at Emmys; Gracie Carvalho is Fox-y
Serial photobomber Chris Bosh has struck again.
The comical (often unintentionally so) Miami Heat big man attended the Emmy Awards Monday night in Los Angeles, where "True Detective" star Matthew McConaughey caught a lot of face time, as he tends to do.
But wearing a white tuxedo, Bosh lurked in the background, as he tends to do.
This is the result.
Not exactly Bosh lifting from the depths in front of a camera, but the red carpet is a crowded place.
Robin Williams and Billy Crystal in the booth
Also at the Emmys, Billy Crystal led off his emotional tribute to late comedian-actor Robin Williams with a story about the time he and Williams joined the booth at a Mets game at Shea Stadium in 1989.
On Crystal's suggestion, Williams impersonated a Russian baseball player and also managed to catch a foul ball during the booth appearance. Thanks to Thunder Treats for digging up the funny clip.
