Anybody ever see the episode of MRN where Mr. Rogers snuck over to the Captain Kangaroo set and pummeled Mr. Greenjeans to within an inch of his life with a tire iron?

Something about a Super Bowl bet, I think...

Mr. Rogers was the Chuck Norris of the '60s.

From wiki:

Rogers had been driving the same car for years, an old second-hand Impala. Then it was stolen from its parking spot near the WQED studio. Rogers filed a police report, the story was picked up by local news outlets, and general shock swept across town. Within 48 hours, the car was back in the spot where he left it, along with a note saying, "If we'd known it was yours, we never would have taken it!"

On topic, and because pics of women do nothing for me:

I'm in. I'll even buy a sweater to honor my boy, Mr. Rogers.

I think this is a splendid idea, following the lead of classic stars like Mari Blanchard, and hope it will be supported by modern-day celebrities like Monica Bellucci, Jessica Simpson, Jessica Alba, Denise Milani, and Tara Indiana.

/Just tryin' to help out, here.

Don't forget; he was a Naval Chaplain with full sleeves down both arms, hence, why he wore the sweater and dress shirt.

/My grandpa pointed that out to me when I was nine.
// He met him in real life in 1954.

Sure, I'll do it!

And I'll use my imagination and see if I can find a way to get some of my friends to participate too.

I see I wasn't the only one who thought 'sweater puppies'

Mr. Rogers was my best friend as a kid.

But after seeing Scarlett at the beginning....who needs friends?
