SPECIAL NEW YORK CITY VISIT
...RELIVING A DREAM
Rick Anderson's Very Special New York City Visit
Soap Opera Digest. February, 1978: pg. 67-70
What a fun time we had! It was such a joy watching Rick (Dr. Jeff Webber, General Hospital) Anderson dash to and fro through the vast aisles of the New York Coliseum. He was like a kid in a candy store! -- and we weren't at all surprised by his reaction. After all this was a sports show (sponsored by the Sporting Goods Manufacturing Association of North Palm Beach, Florida) and what this talented and handsome young actor loves most -- next to acting that is -- is sports! In fact, if it weren't for injuries suffered on the ice years ago, he might right now have been a big pro-hockey -- instead of daytime TV -- star. It's a desire that never really died. While Rick skated... juggled... and shot arrows... our photographer clicked away and captured his antics on film. Follow along and share the joy we felt as we watched Rick cavort. ---Debra Nencel
