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!

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