Zac at the Dodgers/Yankees game  
From DuranLA:

And why yes, I did get into a twitter skirmish with that ESPN writer.

I hate false information... hate it, hate it, hate it. Like more than most things in the world.

Especially when it is given by people who have been entrusted as journalists to be as accurate and honest as possible. Whatever happened to a) being smart and observant while b) having journalistic integrity?

I mean obviously ESPN is no Wall Street Journal or NY Times, but even they have their problems nowadays.

And like, no offense to her, but she must have been effing blind to think he's 5'5. Like come on. Arguing between 5'7 through 5'9 is more understandable, our physical perspective is hard to overcome as we judge someone else's height.

But knowing that some of you have met him (at least 7 of you that I can think of) and, better yet, have been pictured with him and he is clearly taller than you (even taking into account for shoe heels, etc) and most of you agree he is 5'8-9, like idk, I trust you (and the pictures) more than I trust mass media anymore, especially twats who twitter to get attention and build their relevance.

But, on its own (as opposed to a matter of recorded fact) does height even matter? To quote Matt on twitter: "Height does not a man make! I'd rather have a 5'3" man that is a decent human being, than a 6'6" asshole showing off his machismo."

And I totally agree.

Zac's a cool, kind dude. Whatever height, lol. And even however hot.

I pity anyone who can't see past their assessments of how tall he is (or isn't) or even how hot he is to see that... his heart... the best part of him.

/rant, sorry the cheese came out at the end, lol...

I am still hoping that they arrange as promo some sort of throwing out of the first pitch at a Red Sox game for Zac and Charlie Tahan. The Red Sox are even in LA the week the film is released!

I'm glad you did that though. This girl needs to be put in her place like that, as I said to you before. There's no filter there for her & as a journalist, especially being a female in sports, you should know better. UGH now I wanna get on my soap box too lol!

And the Yankee fan I am - kind of loving he went to the game. It would be nice to get a few more pictures. Now if I can only get his ass to more hockey games next season ;)

twitter is too easy to fuck up on for most writers/reporters tbh. they just don't think.

on the topic of other pics, i wonder if jeter realized he ditched on signing for zac efron though. like if that writer's other twitters are true at all.
IceGoddess: mmm dirty little secretccmskatechick on June 28th, 2010 01:11 am (UTC)
This is absolutely true, but more prevalent with her both on & off twitter.

And on the same thread, I am wondering what went down with that too. Would Zef even be on his radar? lol - though I do remember hearing something about his girlfriend being a fan so who knows. Just have to wait & see if any other 'reports' come out from today.

well you give 'em hell then LOL and a high five :)

i can't even with the height debate. to me he's got to be 5'9" at least, otherwise everyone around him would be towering over him....but what ever! he looks adorable regardless...

oh and go yankees!!!!!
shadow830shadow830 on June 28th, 2010 12:42 am (UTC)
Why do a lot of people comment about his height? I don't understand what the big deal is about his height all the time. And who said 5'8" / 5'9" is short? Zac is who he is and I wouldn't change a darn thing about him.

I've been with both tall 6'3" and Zac's height and I prefer men Zac's height b/c I'm tiny like V is. My best male friend is only 5'4".
Isabelabelaserpa on June 28th, 2010 12:47 am (UTC)
I'm 5'2-3, soo..I don't care what his height is. Next to me, everyone is tall! haha

Zac has always loved baseball. Why can't they just let him be there to enjoy. Also, I don't think he gives a rip what people think about his height. He is who he is.

I Like the picture of Zac at the baseball I see Jason in the person so I'm woundeing if this has to do with Ctsc Promo.
jessica3311: Bubblesjessica3311 on June 28th, 2010 03:18 am (UTC)
Jason has gone to basketball games plenty of time when it wasnt near promo....I dont think that means anything.
Spaßbremsespassbremse123 on June 28th, 2010 01:53 am (UTC)
I hate guys getting shit for being short(-ish)

What's the fucking point.. what are they supposed to do about it?
butterflybee260: kiss my assbutterflybee260 on June 28th, 2010 02:03 am (UTC)

So what, he's fun sized! And 5'8 isn't short, its average imo.
Beejeezbee on June 28th, 2010 02:49 am (UTC)
We know he always liked baseball from his older interviews but the timing looks very promotion~y... not that there is something wrong with it; not at all.

What I don't get - did all this stuff on Twitter and this pic happen before the game or after? It's not really important but I'm wondering.

Oh yeah, and that "journalist" is an idiot.
IceGoddess: cover boy dirty little secretccmskatechick on June 28th, 2010 03:38 am (UTC)
All this VIP schmoozing takes place on the field before the game during batting practices.

Though I don't know how showing up at a ballgame between the Yankees/Dodgers today would have to do anything with Charlie promo - he didn't throw out first pitch, there's no ties with Universal, etc.
Beejeezbee on June 28th, 2010 04:38 am (UTC)
Thanks. :)

I have no clue about baseball, so it's sort of surprising that it's before the game. I would have thought something like that happens after.

It's certainly not "active" promo but I suspect he might get (or hope for) some media mention/pics etc out of it and considering that baseball is a theme in his movie they might tie whatever gets written into it. It's not going to be a big deal but I don't think it hurts. Plus, should he do some real baseball related promo later, it might not come totally out of the left fields if he gets seen at a game earlier. idk
jessica3311jessica3311 on June 28th, 2010 03:21 am (UTC)
He looks all sorts of adorable in that photo. As someone who has seen him in person...he isnt tall but he's def not 5"5...Im 5"3 and the photo with me he looks def a few inches taller....everyone does LOL....I say 5"8-5"9 but who cares he's gorgeous :D

And is it really promo related? Jason has gone to basketball games with him when he wasnt ready to do promo...who knows LOL Either way I hope he had a great time :)

ETA: Jerry aka Turtle from Entourage is at the game tonight!!! I need a pic of my 2 boys!!!

All this 'he's so tiny' stuff cracks me up. Maybe because I'm just barely 5'2".

Best line of the whole post I pity anyone who can't see past their assessments of how tall he is (or isn't) or even how hot he is to see that... his heart... the best part of him". So true.
Audrey: kstew FUkylijah on June 28th, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC)
I find it strange that people choose to comment on his height. Surely there's something better to comment on... like I dont know.. how effing gorgeous he is??

Seems to me this girl is just bitter.

So Cady - you go girl - show them who's boss! ;-)
