‘The Closer’ and Hobart lax

Careful watchers of the season-opening episode of TNT’s “The Closer might have noticed an orange and purple Hobart lacrosse stick in the hands of series-star Kyra Sedgwick. The stick – and Hobart’s name – got plenty of airtime as one of the items Sedgwick’s character discovers after her boyfriend unexpectedly moves in with her.

Although we can’t be sure how the prop made its way on to the set of what CBS News has called “the most successful basic cable series of all time, what we can say is that Sedgwick is the aunt of Hobart alumnus Neil K. Bacon ’05. For more information, check out the show’s official site.

An encore presentation of this program aired Thursday, June 21, also on TNT.
