Yes, everyone read that title correctly.
Once again, you’re about to enter the twilight zone of Post-Modern Reality Simulation.
Ordinarily, no one would expect there to be connections between classic television shows such as The Twilight Zone, Columbo, and a legendary NFL football coach.
But as everyone who frequents this site has surely learned – though the majority have been psychologically conditioned since birth to believe otherwise – we’re not living in an ordinary world.
Screenwriter, playwright, television and narration screen host Rod Serling – best known for his live television dramas and his anthology television series The Twilight Zone – enjoyed a unique career while in the public’s eye.
Though it is claimed Serling died in 1975, he went on to assume the identity of a popular and award-winning television actor who portrayed one of the television medium’s most iconic and memorable characters – a disheveled, cigar chomping but endearing LAPD detective clad in a rumpled raincoat.
More intriguingly, however, during the era of the 1960’s, Serling took a detour from television hosting, producing and playwrighting to portray a character best-known to loyal and rabid sports fans as a legendary NFL football coach, a man whose name is synonymous with the Super Bowl trophy.
Though a confirmed connection between “Peter Falk” and Rod Serling was made in a previous article, further research led to an even more intriguing discovery – the involvement of “Vince Lombardi”.
