Mr. Rogers, "Won't You Be My Neighbor" Documentary premiered just this past Friday. The documentary received a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 8.6/10 on IMDb... And honestly, shame on you IMDb. How is this not at LEAST a 9?

Anyways, yesterday Mrs. Joanne Rogers was on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." She made it perfectly clear that at age 90 she would not have come from Pittsburgh to New York for anyone besides Jimmy Fallon. According to Mrs. Rogers, she adores Jimmy and I mean, how can you not?

My favorite part of the interview is when Mrs. Rogers talks about her husband's obsession with his weight. It wasn't that he wanted to be skinnier or heavier but rather to stay right at 143 lbs. 

Now the reason for this is what 1-4-3 translates into if you break it down...

1 - I

4 - LOVE

3 - YOU

Do you remember that Bobby Brackins song featuring Ray J, 1-4-3 back in 2011? I think it's safe to say Mr. Rogers was way ahead of the game.
