I admit I am not that up on pop culture or celebrities. In fact I haven't really watched any network TV series in at least 10 years. I do remember watching "Entertainment Tonight" one evening in high school on my brithday and learning that I share a birthday with Emmanuel Lewis- you know, the short statured baby faced actor who starred as Webster Popodopoulas in the TV comedy "Webster". Not only did we share the same birthday, but he was delivered in a hospital on the same date in history as I popped into the world, 41 years ago.
I had not thought about Emmanuel Lewis in ages, but when you see him you instantly recognize him from the TV show. I was taken aback when, while walking the concourse of Galt Arena Gardens in Cambridge, Ontario, Webster himself appeared, there to root on the visiting Brantford Golden Eagles. It seems that Emmanuel had been helping set up a movie studio on the reservation outside Brantford, so when in Canada, do as the Canadians do and watch some hockey. I don't generally get too excited about celebrity sightings, but come on man- this is Webster! Must be folks born the same day as me are destined to turn up at the nearest hockey arena.
