'The Hoff' aka David Hasselhoff, one of the most famous actors in Germany is our featured person this Sunday night. Quite an interesting man if I do say so myself, as I had the pleasure of meeting and starring with Mr. Hasselhoff on an episode of Baywatch back in 1997. The episode was 'Night of the Dolphin' and two of the three top Babes from Baywatch (according to Heckler Spray, Gossip for Grownups) were in that very same episode. We're talking #2 on the list Carmen Electra aka Lani McKenzie and #3 Gena Lee Nolin aka Neely Capshaw; MY BAD TEQUILA didn't have the pleasure of meeting the Great Miss Pamela Anderson but I'm sure she is just as disappointed as we are that fate never let our paths cross.
David Michael Hasselhoff was born July 17, 1952 and he is best known for two different roles, one as Michael Knight in the popular 1980 series Knight Rider and for his portrayal of Mitch Buchannon of Baywatch. Hasselhoff was/is a huge star in Germany due to his strong performance in 1989 at the Berlin Wall and had a number one hit as a singer in the German pop charts in 1989.
David's story of Baywatch is quite intriguing as the show was initially canceled after one season by NBC; but Hasselhoff believed the series had potential and boy was he correct. He arranged for a first-run syndication in 1991 and invested his own dinero with functions of executive producer. He collected on the royalties and purchased the rights to Baywatch from the National Broadcasting Company which made him a very rich hombre.
Baywatch is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most watched TV show in the world with over 1.1 Billion viewers. That means a whole lot of people have seen my smiling mug on TV as well.
A chance meeting with Susie Glickman, producer and casting director of Baywatch put me in Hollywood for a day. Baywatch flew me over to LA via Alaska Air for the day and then I was whisked by limo to Marina Del Ray where filming took place on a giant, lovely Yacht and I was cast as a Drug Lord on 'Night of the Dolphin.' Wow, what a day, and then to be asked back for a second and third episode but I had to study for exams at Thunderbird, School of Global Management so that I might become a high paid International Executive. Didn't happen, should have taken my chances on the big screen with Charlie Sheen, who has been in enough trouble for 'Two and a Half Men.'
O. J. Simpson did play a part in David Hasselhoff's life; in 1994 David had arranged to sing at a concert in Atlantic City, New Jersey on pay-per-view. This concert was going to reestablish his singing career in the United States; however, it was the same evening of O.J. Simpson's famous police chase and David did not receive the viewers that he had expected and deserved. Most people were more interested in seeing whether Orenthal James Simpson aka "The Juice" was going to pull the trigger of the gun that he had pointed as his own head while he sped away from police at 35 - 45 miles per hour. The Juice played in the National Football League (NFL) for the Buffalo Bills before his acting career and his commercial of running through an airport and leaping over luggage for Hertz Rental Car. In the great police chase, O.J. all but signed his confession for the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman, Jr., but the Los Angeles prosecuting attorney - Marcia Clark was worried about her hair, her appearance of television and O.J. was acquitted. The famous line of "If the glove doesn't fit, you must acquit.." We all know how that turned out!
After that walk down memory lane a Tequila shot is in order, CABO WABO is the selected Reposado tonight. The same Tequila made famous by the 'Red Rocker' - Mr. Sammy Hagar himself, an ex Montrose and Van Halen member, back again with Chickenfoot and three other cool dudes - Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith. If you've never visited Cabo San Lucas, you need to and stop in at the CABO WABO Cantina for a shot of one of the most tastiest Tequilas in Mexico. Also, a great time to buy Real Estate in Cabo or neighboring community San Jose, Baja de Sur, Mexico. Beautiful haciendas with ocean views going at $150,000 - trust me a steal as these were previously valued and sold at a half million dollars. "Buy Now - Party Later!" - Rico's own sales motto!
Okay, back home to Scottsdale and our Arizona Cardinals who have been tearing in up, another win. These Wild Cards are at 10 - 5 and have a possibility of ending up 11 and 5 win / loss record. Last year we went 9 and 7 and then to the Super Bowl. Our team could be better this year than last, especially when Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Tim Hightower and Beanie Wells are in complete sync offensively. If our defense can play the way they have a few times this season.... Watch Out for the Return of the Red Bird.
