Anthony's Early Crime Fighting Hero turns 68
Erik Estrada is 68 today. We all remember his fine work in Chips.
He along with Starsky (Starsky and Hutch) was one of my child hood crime fighting Heros. No Batman or Superman for me. Chips was such a simple show. California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers Jon Baker and Frank "Ponch" Poncherello (Estrada) cruise the freeways of Los Angeles, solve crimes and help people in trouble in this cop show. The stakes usually weren't very high, the better to highlight the personal lives of Ponch and Jon.
