A trivial Twilight Zone visit...

    This probably means nothing, but I found it rather bizarre.

    The other night, I'm watching Sanford and Son, my laptop nearby. Fred mentions "Oakland vs. Minnesota" in the episode, so I was curious to find out when the episode originally aired. A visit to www.imdb.com. The episode aired right around the time of Super Bowl 11. I then click on the actor biography for "LaMont" as I never did hear much about him.

    He has the same b'day as I do.

    Fast forward to this morning. I have the "The Incredible Hulk" on for background noise while I finish up a couple quick email things before getting ready to head out for the day. Curiosity gets the better of me, and I return to www.imdb.com to see what ever happened to the actor who plays reporter Jack McGee.

    He has the same b'day as I do.

    This is not something I do as a rule, so to find out both actors shared my b'day was just a bit weird.

    I now return you to your regularly-scheduled SportsJournalists.com.

    This is all too weird
    I'd be expecting to at some point today have an encounter with that fella Kulchack, (Darren McGavin) the Night Stalker, if I were you.

    You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead - your next stop, the Twilight Zone!

    And that's Carl Kolchak, The Night Stalker.

    Just curious, does Nathan Poole share a birthday with you as well?

    Wow, the Hulk is on. This site can be useful.

    Good episode, too -- David Banner gets stuck in transformation.

    This post brings back wonderful memories of curling up with my grandfather, "Paw," as we called him, in his recliner.

    I was a skinny kid, and he was a skinny man.

    For any L.A. natives, the real Night Stalker is Richard Ramirez. I was 13-14 when he ran around killing people in random cities around SoCal. Scared the fuck out of me cuz I thought I'd be next. I still remember the Sunday morning when every TV station in LA broke into programming to report he'd been caught.

    I had forgotten how classic that Hulk episode was. The scientists were particularly amusing.

    "Hey, let's torment the giant green guy and see what happens."

    "Hey, he's getting mad. I know, let's introduce a piece of radioactive rock and see what he does! Oh, no! He's smashing through the floor!"

    Bill Bixby's acting talents were always unappreciated.
