Pop Culture Confessional

This week's question is: What is your favorite "I ran into a celebrity" story?

Doug ate brunch at the Hotel Del Coronado with Booger (Curtis Armstrong) from Revenge of the Nerds

Jamie ran into Ed Sanders from Extreme Makeover:Home Edition with his newborn triplets at Legoland; ran into Bob Saget from Full House at Disney's California Adventure; and ran into NBA Hall of Famer Bill Walton at a Bruce Hornsby concert

Listener Feedback

Vince helped ex-Minnesota Viking head coach Dennis Green move a TV into his house.

Jeff literally ran into Johnny Mathis and his entourage at the Albany County airport.

Arnell and his band mates ran into Doogie Howser himself, Neil Patrick Harris, at a Burbank taco shop.

Paula rode the elevator with Batman (Michael Keaton) when she worked at a market/deli in Del Mar.

New question: What TV Show did you love at one time that you now think is horrible?

With the Land of the Lost movie coming out this week (starring Will Ferrell), we were reminded of the TV Show that we watched as children. When it came on TV Doug knew it was time to turn the TV off and go play, while Jamie used to watch it religiously. Now, we both agree that it is crap!
