Can Rudy Come Out and Play? [290/365]

Huxtable HouseWatching The Cosby Show reruns this morning and I remembered I had taken a photo of the Huxtable home. Some call it 10 Leroy Street and others call it 10 Saint Luke’s Place.  Either way it’s the location of the famous brownstone.  While The Cosby Show was set in Flatbush, Brooklyn and filmed live in Brooklyn, the actual building used for the exterior shots is located in Greenwich Village.  St. Luke’s Place consists of a one-block section of Leroy Street in Greenwich Village that runs between Hudson Street and 7th Ave.

December to Remember: Redskins Sidelines [205/365]

Redskins SidelinesThis date is significant in Redskins history because it was on this day in 1996 they played their last game at RFK Stadium beating the Cowboys 37-10.  I was fortunate to be on the sidelines during that game and witness the end of an era from the ground level.  When Jack Kent Cooke Stadium (now FedEx Field) opened the work continued for me producing promos with the team.  This is one of my favorite shots from the Monday night game the Redskins played the Cowboys (October 13, 1997) – another matchup the Redskins were victorious; winning 21-16.  I am here with photographer/editor Dave Satchell, my homie Tracy Owens, and sports producer Randy Nelson.

December to Remember: Give Me Some Sugar [201/365]

Sugar Ray LeonardI began my professional career as an on-air promotion writer/producer for the CBS affiliate in Washington, D.C.  Here I am working with boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard for a post-race promo I had to produce for the Glenn Brenner 5K Run.  This wasn’t my first meeting with Sugar Ray.  In high school I was the cashier at the Montgomery Mall Foot Locker In Bethesda, MD.  One day Sugar Ray walked in and began pointing to item after item of things he wanted.  When it came time to ring up his loot he asked me to add some items that were behind the counter—one of those being a jock strap.  You know what comes next.  I asked, “Mr. Leonard, what size athletic supporter would you like?”  With that million-dollar grin he said, “Large, of course.”

Channeling My Inner MacGyver [117/365]

Got to the gym today, got dressed and went to look for a ponytail holder (I usually have them in multiple places in my gym bag, makeup bag or purse) and I found I had none.  I wasn’t going to workout with the mane flowing, so I put my MacGyver hat on, grabbed a plastic bag from the locker room and created my own hair tie.

Ain’t nothing gonna break my stride, Nobody’s gonna hold me down, Oh-no, I got to keep on movin.

Marrrrrcuuuuusssss Darling! [81/365]

I found this contact sheet in one of the press release drawers when I worked at the Washington, D.C. CBS affiliate in the mid-90s.  There were no markings as to who took these photos of Eartha Kitt but how cool is it to see her in this light.  From her hit recordings of “C’est Si Bon” and “Santa Baby” to playing the role of Catwoman, I cannot help but think of her as Lady Eloise in Boomerang – rolling her Rs and announcing that she wasn’t wearing any panties.  Classic.
