Bob Seagren

Yesterday, I had the privilege of speaking with Bob Seagren (Jodie’s boyfriend Dennis Phillips) for the book. Well into his 60s, he’s still a hardy chap who snowboards regularly with his kids and runs International City Racing, a company that organizes a number of sporting events including the Long Beach International City Marathon.

As amiable as they come, Seagren is also the type of fellow who can make you feel horribly unaccomplished. Never one to sit around, he’s done everything from win the gold medal for pole vaulting in the 1968 Olympics to running a travel agency and restaurant franchise. And all those years ago, it was his house where the entire Soap cast gathered to watch the premiere of the series.
