Look who got called for jury duty in Baltimore

Interesting day Tuesday at Baltimore Circuit Court. The Sun reports these two men showed up for jury duty:

People snapped photos, of course. Phelps hung out with headphones over his ears. Goldman read and tweeted. It doesn’t sound like either wound up on a jury.

The odds of these two famous Baltimoreans getting called for jury duty on the same day has to be astronomical.
