Mathieson Stood Up By Pee-Wee Herman

Loved this little tidbit from Ken Mandel of

OK, so Pee Wee Herman didn’t attend Sunday’s game, as had originally been thought.

Yes, you read that correctly. Paul Reubens and pitcher Scott Mathieson
struck up a conversation on a recent flight from Los Angeles to Florida
(Reubens’ mother lives in Sarasota) and Mathieson had left tickets for
the game.

Reubens had to cancel.

Mathieson grew up watching "Pee Wee’s Playhouse" (who didn’t?) and the two have become friends.

Fortunately, Chairry and Conky were able to make it, as was Cowboy Laurence Fishburne. Also, John Daly threw some BP.
