If you’ve followed us for even one or two months, you know we enjoy reporting on our serendipitous celebrity encounters at the various grocery stores here in La-La Land. From Johnnie Matress to Clint Eastwood to Benjamin J. Stein, there have been some real doozies in our experience.
However, yesterday was one of the all-time greats, the incomparable game-show legend Mistah Jerome Vered in the middle of the afternoon at the Gelson’s at the corner of Laurel Canyon and Riverside. Though he lost in the first round of the recent ‘Decades’ mega-tournament, he still would whale on 99 percent of the players out there. But when the 1 percent face off against the 1 percent in an Ayn Rand-style Galtsz Gulch world-domination showdown — such was the Ruler of the Universe nature of the ‘Decades’ tournament — well, only one property-rights screecher is gonna survive. Dagny Taggert v. Howard Roark — who ya got?
Back to reality, and in the case of your ‘Decades’ tournament, Bradford Rutter was Yahweh, Allah, Zeus & Odin incarnate. Again. As always. Bradford Rutter #1 alwayszzzzzz! He should challenge Watson to a rematch.
