Erik Estrada sighting!

I just returned from a work conference in Anaheim (right outside Disneyland). Our university has a booth at this conference every year--it's called the American Society for Industrial Security Conference (we offer a Master's in Organizational Security Management).

It was pretty fun, but the highlight was seeing (dunh dunh dunh--although the title was kind of a spoiler) Erik Estrada! Ponch from CHiPs! More recently (and forgettably) in Armed and Famous with Jack Osbourne and LaToya Jackson.
He was there in a booth where a professional golf teacher could analyze your swing and tell you where you need help.
I guess they booked him since it was a security conference and he was a cop and all in the early 80's.

Condoleeza Rice and Ben Stein were also key-note speakers but I was much more excited to have seen Poncherelli.

When I was a kid, I had a CHiPs Big Wheel and it was the bomb. I was like hell on wheels on that thing!


  1. Haha, that's awesome!! Have you seen the Burger King commercial he's in? Priceless!

  2. No, everyone keeps telling me about them though. Getting a DVR spoiled me. We never watch commercials anymore.

  3. Hysterical! I just saw this Erik Estrada label and had to come check out the post.
