The good news: Dennis Haskins, the pride of Chattanooga, will serve as grand marshal for Atlanta's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, according to a press release today. (The link provides all the information for the event, which will be held March 15.) Haskins is best known for his 11-year stint as Principal Belding on TV's "Saved by the Bell."
The not-so-good news: Don't expect too many laughs from Mr. Belding, er, Haskins, if his stand-up routine is any indication. (Though we had to laugh at his saying how awkward it is these days to get a lap dance.) Check out this performance, which included continual references to handheld notes. Hey, Dennis, it's called IMPROV. C'mon, now. Class dismissed. (It should also be noted he seems like a nice guy.)
