While in Los Angeles last month, I met up with Christopher, an old college friend and the one person who can get away with calling me Victory without being pummeled. He’d moved from the East to the West about a month before I received the letter alerting me to my impending trip — we’d decided that we had to meet up, even if it was a brief visit.

During the catching up, he showed me a couple of camera phone images from the documentary in which he had acted shortly after his arrival in L.A. — and now the piece is ready for airing on The History Channel.

If you’re looking for something to watch on Thursday night, check out Chris and the rest of the cast in “Last Stand of the 300,” which airs at 9 p.m. EST. Info about the show is available here.
