Brush with fame (but not fortune)
The funniest part about it is that he looks exactly like you'd expect a TV anchor type to look: "all American" (i.e., pasty white with blue eyes), shiny perfectly straight white teeth, and a full head of silvery grey hair. Also, he was tall, broad, and charismatic.
Alas, I did not get interviewed for Eyewitness News. I think I shall survive.
* Not 100% true. I own a 5" black and white Radio Shack television that I bought to watch Red Sox playoff games. You can get some of the basic channels on it if you recline away from it and hold the antenna with your toe. (I think the human body must conduct television signals pretty well and act like an extended antenna. That's the only reason I can think of that holding it with my toe while reclining would make a difference. Leaning forward and holding it with my hand doesn't work nearly as well.) It currently resides inside a beat up old suitcase on the top shelf of my closet. Getting it down from there would involve risking life and limb at this point.
