The Battle of the Forearms

Herb Jefferson Jr. is a veteran actor, possibly most known for his role as Lt. Boomer on Battlestar Galactica. Jefferson has had a lengthy career of guest roles and supporting parts, but his role on BG is what really puts him on the autograph circuit.
Jefferson appeared in one episode of The Rookies (one of my first favorite shows), but I did not recall that until after I met him. For once, I did not bring up the most obscure role.
Jefferson wanted to compare forearms with me. I was probably at the peak of my workouts and he still had me beat, despite being 20 years my senior. He got a kick out of that.
Jefferson was a very nice man, happily greeting and talking with every fan. The autograph circuit could use more celebs like Jefferson.
