Sandy Koufax was also my favorite pitcher when I was growing up as well, and I am RC. 😀 He still is my all time favorite pitcher. The Dodgers were my team until the mid 70’s. I once saw a twi-light double header with the starting pitchers for LA being for Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax vs Jim Bunning and Chris Short for the Phillies. Of the four starting pitchers, three are in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Now back to Beverly Hills and the Hillbillies. Did not see any on my last trip to Rodeo Drive.
Funny you should post of Rodeo Drive. 45 and I were on the phone last night (thanks for checking my medical status, 45!) and we got to somehow talking about celebrities and I shared a story with him that my sister-in-law and husband live in Burbank for years and her husband was telling me in all those years, he's never seen any celebrities which I found hard to believe. I was out to L.A. on business and my wife joined me and I took a couple of days vacation and we visited the Burbank clan.
They take us sightseeing and we are on Rodeo Drive at an intersection with another famous street whose name I forgot (edit: was it Wilshire Blvd.?).
So we are crossing the street and my wife and sister-in-law are chatting in Spanish and the brother-in-law is ahead of them presumably contemplating his navel and I am about 10 feet behind fixing my camera as we all cross the street. Coming in the opposite direction is Ted Danson at the time when Cheers was at its zenith in popularity. I see him but being from NY and having seen numerous celebrities, I am cool and decide not to shout to the rest of the clan that Ted is about to be face-to-face with them. Besides, they have to see him, right?
As Ted walks by, he slows down and gives a version of his Mayday Malone cocked head of confused possible recognition of my wife and sister-in-law and the look on his face is like "they're speaking Spanish, do I know them somewhere? Have they cleaned my house in the past?"
He continues to walk past them and then me.
When we get to the opposite side of the street, I said to the others, "did you see Ted Danson?" By this time he has walked on and out of sight. The wife and sister-in-law were so engrossed in their conversation, they never saw him. The brother-in-law also didn't see Ted and my comment to him was "Now, I understand how you never see any celebrities in the same town as the NBC studios."
