David Krumholtz has appeared in 69 movies and tv shows since his debut in the 1993 Michael J. Fox movie Life With Mikey. Among other things, he was in The Santa Clause, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, and was even the lead in the show Numb3rs that lasted 6 seasons on CBS. Still, I remember him as Barry Corman “The Cereal King” from his first role. Sure he was kind of a jerk, but you have to respect any child that wears a scarf.
60 Minutes Sports had a very cool story on Professional Darts in England. According to the story, Phil “The Power” Taylor is the Michael Jordan of darts. All of his titles are too long to list, so go here if you have a lot of time on your hands (you do because you’re reading this already).
The above picture is a much younger Phil than he appears today, but you gotta love that quaffed hair/steesh/chest hair combo he was rocking back in the 80’s! Phil said he’s made millions of dollars over the years and his arm is insured for $15 million.
I’ve caught darts on tv a few times and it’s always exciting to hear the announcers and crowd going bananas, but the 60 Minutes piece made going to a darts match look more fun than any other sporting event I’ve ever attended.
Walter Cronkite was an American broadcast journalist, best known as anchorman for the CBS Evening News. He was once considered to be “the most trusted man in America.” I believe that title now lies with Jack MacBrayer.
Here are some of the things he covered:
World War II
The Nuremberg trials
Iran Hostage Crisis
President John F. Kennedy’s death
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death
The Beatles musician John Lennon’s death
Extensive TV coverage of the U.S. space program
One thing that didn’t get extensive coverage is his upper lip. Though Walter did have a steesh, it appears his eyebrows provided more coverage than his mustache.
