I hadn't thought about Henry Winkler in years, but in the past two weeks I've seen him or his name in about five different contexts.
I watched a few episodes of MacGyver a couple weeks ago. On the DVD, there were previews for other TV shows coming to DVD: specifically Laverne & Shirley and Happy Days. So Winkler appeared in those. And then I was surprised to discover that Winkler was one of the executive producers of MacGyver.
It's possible that those two items were related, so that's not necessarily a coincidence. But then a day or two later, on a mailing list, someone mentioned Winkler in passing as an example of a celebrity who might be in the audience of a baseball game.
Then the other day I happened across the Ron Howard/Andy Griffith/Henry Winkler vote-for-Obama video.
And then tonight I turned on the TV to watch something on TiVo, and broadcast TV came on before I could switch to TiVo, and NUMB3RS (which I've never seen) was on. Guest starring, you guessed it, Henry Winkler.
So he suddenly seems to be ubiquitous, at least in my life. (Tomorrow I expect to see him in the park.) Is he staging some kind of a comeback, or is he following me around, or is this all just coincidence?
