@Palm Feathers @southphillyben The end for Dr. Shock was tragic---He was a resident of Roxborough ( a neighborhood in Philadelphia), a devoted amateur magician, a deli worker, insurance salesman, managed a pinball arcade, and then Horror Host. Suddenly, after ten years of performing he died of a heart attack in 1979 at the young age of 42 years old.

@Palm Feathers @Tom Jackson @southphillyben I say "sadly" because an evening with Dr. Shock meant yet another weekend late-night without a date!!

Joseph Zawislak created his Dr. Shock persona based on Roland with actor John Zacherle's permission who previously appeared on Philadelphia television. The character Dr. Shock first aired on WPHL-TV in 1969. His first show lasted 13 weeks but a protest march and 10,000 letters from angry fans put him back on the air, but required major show format changes. Three different shows were hosted during his career span titled "Scream-In," "Mad Theater" and "Horror Theater."

The character he played was costumed as a lively zombie with slicked-down hair, a black frock coat and white spats, assisted in his laboratory by a one-eyed hunchback named Boris. His usual entrance was from inside a coffin. In the revised format he brought on his 9 month old toddler daughter Doreen in 1969 and named her "Bubbles" for the show's sponsor, Bubbles-Booth soda. This softened the Dr. Shock's zombie image and the toddler on air grew up along with his fans.

@Spiffo @Tom Jackson Yes, yes I am--- they run Stats like that all the time that have little meaning in reality...


It's like saying "this shortstop had a great defensive year because he only made 2 errors"----when in reality the player's range is so limited he rarely gets to plays that better shortstops make routinely...

@Spiffo Hmmm.... how many tackles did he never even get close to making but he should have been in a better spot to attempt a tackle---   I guess we will NEVER KNOW !!

@PP Dubs  I think it's a matter of his being from Harrisburg, PA., and playing for a team that is relatively close by to his boyhood hometown his whole life...  He has to uproot a lot of stuff.  Granted he is only 26 years old, and has been pampered by athletic programs since grade school, but moving to Buffalo will feel to him like he's on an 8-month road trip... that, plus he has a lot of local endorsement deals in Harrisburg and Philly which may now be jeopardized.

A little under the weather so I broke out a 6-pack of Coors original "Banquet Style"----  ugh, it was bitter and skunky.  Is it supposed to taste like that? It was in the fridge since Christmas--- maybe "Banquet" goes stale if not consumed within a certain time after brewing?
