Meet the Audrey and Gregory of 2014! 

On Friday, I saw the classic 1953 film “Roman Holiday” , and I couldn’t help fantasizing about a possible remake today. My idea of the perfect Princess Ann and Joe Bradley would be British actress Kiera Knightley and American star Daniel Henney.

Why these two?

Kiera can pretend to be royal because of her classic English accent. She has the same grace and size as the late Audrey Hepburn. Her acting in period films like “Pride and Prejudice” proves she knows how to be a noble lady of yesteryear.

Daniel is a dead ringer for the late Gregory Peck. He has earned respect all over Asia with his modeling and acting. The Michigan born celebrity rose to fame in South Korea. He continued his career in Hollywood wih roles on “Hawaii Five-o”, “Big Hero 6″ and “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” just to name a few.

Her onscreen poise and his charm could win over hearts across the world.

Think about it, Hollywood.

My hometown and my friends from abroad went head to head in the best baseball game of the season today.

Jackie Robinson West brought pride back to Chicago that hasn’t been seen since President Obama was re-elected President of the USA. The Young Men gave it their all until the end of the 6th inning. South Korea won the title of 2014 World Series champs with a score of 8-4, but both of these extraordinarily talented players deserved to be recognized for their hard work and determination.

Congratulations to South Korea on their win!

Congratulations to Jackie Robinson West on becoming national champions and making Chicago proud!
