Personal Quote:

"I hate these people (the Rams and their owner, Georgia Frontiere) for what they did, taking the Rams logo with them when they moved to St. Louis. That logo belonged to Southern California." - on the Rams' move to St. Louis. Months later, the Raiders moved back to Oakland.


Due to the fact that the enormous Dryer is a foot taller than his "Hunter" co-star Stepfanie Kramer, she had to stand on an egg crate while they were in the same shot so that both of them could be seen. See more »
