My wife is an avowed fan of Regis & Kelly and told me that she heard Regis say on the show today(mon.) that while he, Don Rickles, & Bob Newhart were doing a couple of shows last week out at Norther Quest Casino, Regis toured Crosby house and the GU campus. He spoke glowingly of GU and told a story of once singing with Bing and how much Crosby was his idol. Regis also said he was pull ing for the Zags this week and he always rooted for the other Catholic schools when the Irish were not involved. I wonder if Don & Bob were with him?

Bob Newhart's son attended GU, and I think graduated. It's was several years ago, maybe 20.

True Rob did attend GU (I was his TA in a bio lab), but I do not know if he graduated. He lived in my kid brother's dorm. That was '82-83 I believe.

Didn't graduate. He used to buy me beer when I was in high school. He was friends with my sister and her boyfriend (now husband). I remember giving him $20.00 to buy some beer in Chads and he came out with three or four cases of generic beer. He figured we wanted quantity over quality. Really nice guy.
