    There was this nice cute girl that worked at a Music+ store where I would rent videos in the early 90's. The name on her tag said "Par", and I finally asked her why she was named that? She said that when she was little, her uncle would always do an impression of Don Pardo and then call her Don Pardo?? She said that, in her family, everyone just started calling her Par and the nickname stuck. I wonder where that girl is now?

    There was a time when that voice opening Saturday Night Live was so exciting. You couldn't wait to watch. That's sad lb

    My oldest sister was an absolute pain in the ass, she told my dad that SNL was X-rated and that my brother and I should be forbidden from watching it. So we would sneak up just to watch it, so it was even more of a treat to watch if we managed to not get caught.

    This SNL that's on now is not even a shadow of what it once was, not even what it was in the early 90's.

    "Robin, I know this is going to sound weird, like a movie or something, but I was just thinking about Don Pardo this morning...."

    Robin, I invented having my own announcer. Don Pardo was a hack who wore a wig, he never had lusious full jet black hair like I do...right Robin? Robin?

    Seriously, is there a voice more synonomous with anything?
    He is going to be missed, even though 96 is really fucking old.

    Robin, last night I told my wife that I should reach out to Don Pardo and ask him to guest announce the show. I mean, what a voice. And I'm sure he had some great stories about blowing guys in the bushes, right?
