Nope…. didn’t say Cheney or Van Dyke… this is an obit for Dick Van Patten, the fine and goofy dad of the great show, “Eight is Enough”.
This sad, sad passing puts Team The Stiffs, led by Mark, on the board with 19 points, 14 for Dick’s 86 years and 5 for having the single shot.
Van Patten was your basic 80’s icon as dad of the family we wanted to join (why did we want to live in Sacramento, CA with 8 awful teens?). He was also on every other show on TV like “I Dream of Jeanie”, “Love Boat”, “Love American Style”… and let’s not forget his exceptional role in “Spaceballs”.
Congrats to Mark for hitting the board. The points and picks pages are up to date so check out the latest standings.
Insincerely, Commissioners Satan and Missy
