In one week, Ted met two pretty random celebrities. The first: James Eckhouse, Jim Walsh from Beverly Hills 90210, came to opening night of Taming of the Shrew (directed by our own Ted Rooney). He hung around afterwards and chatted. Nice guy.
Even more awesome than that: Tonya Harding. On his flight today from Los Angeles to Portland, they were seated next to each other and got to talk quite a bit. She's quite a character, with arms like a boxer who was wearing Romeos because, in her own words, she doesn't like to deal with shoestrings (no joke). Ted said something about the beer being bitter to which Tonya replied, "But hey, at least it's free. You can never complain about free beer."
This is Abe's reaction to finding out that his dad met these two awesome people:
