My Mother the Car, quality high-concept sitcom totally ahead of its time!! R.I.P., Fine Sir!!
Little known fact: His daughter Kelly was a one-time porn star married to Jack Nance, a.k.a.,
Eraserhead himself!! She tragically committed suicide in 1991. Think I need a hug after writing this!!

Um, I'm an Aspie, so I'm not always too good with perceiving sarcasm. Hopefully you are fully aware
that Coach was a TV sitcom and not real life?!? Although Mr. Van Dyke probably couldn't have done
a worse job than his real-life equivalent on this year's sad Cleveland Browns team!!!
