George R.R. Martin was at the Northwestern football game last Saturday to be honored as a notable alumnus. After the presentation on the field (during which he received a standing ovation), he walked past the home field stands. I was shocked at the reaction of those around me as he walked by. People were falling all over themselves trying to get his picture and screaming his name. There was a Penn State fan sitting in front of me who said he didn't care about the outcome of the game anymore as seeing Martin made his day. I can't remember ever seeing this kind of fan reaction for anyone other than professional athletes or musicians.
Ha. He lives here in Santa Fe and I see him often. He always looks homeless while in Santa Fe.
Santa Fe is a very small community with a lot of celebrities living here but no one pays any attention overall. He bought and renovated the Jean Cocteau cinema which I go to often. He is there often but not too sure people truly know who he is sometimes.
