Marcus & Mr. Belding
Well, at NACA West, Dennis Haskins (a.k.a. still Mr. Belding to those who’ll recognize his face) happened to be in a booth a few down from ours. He stopped by to pet Carson and I didn’t realize who he was. When he learned Carson’s name, he said, “When I was on ‘Saved By The Bell’, our studio was right across from ‘The Tonight Show.’ I used to see Johnny Carson every day and called him Mr. Carson.” Around this time it’s sinking in who this guy is, but Ii didn’t want to assume anything. Thus I asked, “You were on ‘Saved By The Bell’?” He said, “Yes, I was Mr. Belding.”
At this point, I stuck out my hand, gave him our Kappa Sigma grip and and stated letters only brothers of our order would know. Yep, it’s true! Mr. Belding is a brother of Kappa Sig! It’s way cool to meet new brothers, but even more awesome when those guys happen to be famous actors! Here’s a shot of Mr. Belding and yours truly… who’d have thunk I’d be rubbing elbows with Hollywood types in Spokane?
