When Pau met Placido ...
We at Culture Monster have been known to tear ourselves away from the arts world to catch a sporting event every now and then. Of course, we're not alone. One of our city's best-loved culture monsters is a fan of the Lakers' Pau Gasol. Leave it to his fellow Spaniard Plácido Domingo to get Gasol to see his first opera. Check out the video from ABC Sports.
And if the Lakers' power forward/center returns to the opera, let's hope he isn't sitting in front of us.
