From the St. Petersberg Times’ Marc Topkin :

Dewon Brazelton has an interesting way to spend his free time – he likes to watch courtroom shows such as the People’s Court.

So when the Rays were in New York last week, Brazelton visited with judge Marilyn Milian and sat in the audience at the taping of a few episodes.

“People make fun of me all the time,” Brazelton said, “but I really like watching the judge shows.”

Brazelton got a behind-the-scenes tour of the show, which airs locally at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on WTTA-Ch. 38, and, thanks to a hard-working publicist, the show got some attention with his visit.

“I was excited to be there,” Brazelton said, “and they seemed as excited to have me there.”

Indeed, can you imagine how thrilled they must’ve been to have such a star in their midst? Coming next week — Cheaters’ Joey Greco begs Lenny DiNardo for his autograph.
