Robocop...a History Teacher?

So I'm watching a special on the History Channel about the Roman Coliseum over the long weekend and who do I see as one of the experts on the subject but Robocop's Peter Weller. The special was a documentary on Roman engineering that included Weller, who now teaches at Syracuse University (I don't even know how you could possibly make that career leap) where he is apparently a noted historian and an expert on Rome.

My brother and I then spent the next hour arguing whether it was the same Peter Weller who portrayed the cyborg cop in the 1988 and 1990 flicks...the same cyborg cop that prevented a rape by shooting a guy in the balls...A little research proved that it is the same Peter Weller...

''Not a lot of people know that the Coliseum is an amphitheater, which was made up of bearing masonry and cut stone. Isn't that right Ed-209?''

''Please put down your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply.''

Dead or alive, you're coming with me!

A good luck wish for the New Season. Hope all your players remain healthy, all your coaches remain sane(the ones that are left), all your fans filled with beer and most of all that everyone in Patriot Nation is content at the end of the season with a second place finish in the AFC East. Go Raiders!!!
