On February 28, 1984 at 8:00pm, at the age of 14 and 11 … my sister Manda and I sat on our faux-leather couch and turned on our TV – a Zenith Space Command System 3 … housed in an all-wood-grain cabinet.
As we sat there … each wearing a single, white, sequined glove on our left hands … we watched in equal parts awe and admiration, as 25-year-old Michael Jackson raked in a record 8 Grammy Awards!
Every time his name was called … Manda and I erupted in jubilation!
So, what does the King of Pop have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
