  • Sounds More Like Mr. Drummond
  • "Can you confirm or deny what I thought I saw back in 1990? I was driving 18-wheelers for a company called Schneider, and I swear I saw Todd Bridges driving a truck for J.B. Hunt. He was trying to back a truck into a hole, and didn't look like he knew what he was doing, and then he got out and started yelling at other drivers like it was their fault. I've always wondered if it was him or a look-alike. Hope you can help." (Posted: June 2005)
