    I was surprised to see a short cameo by 'Judo' Gene LeBell on Fox's "24" last night.
    He was taken by surprise and stabbed to death!
    Now we all know in real life that Judo Gene would have choked that punk villian out.
    I know that many times celebrity friends are called to do bit parts on shows like these. I wish there was a blurb somewhere on the how's/why's of Gene's appearance.
    Pretty cool anyway.
