Al Bundy

Katey Sagal and Ed O'Neill appeared at the Rose Bowl in 1987 to promote their then-new show on Fox, "Married... with Children". KOKI Channel 23 had just become a Fox affiliate. Peg Bundy Trivia: Katey's father, Boris, directed "The Omega Man", Elvis' "Girl Happy", "Hauser's Memory", "Night Gallery", "T.H.E. Cat", "Adventures in Paradise", "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.", "Twilight Zone"...(links all within this site)

(via email 7/30/2002) Mark Hyatt was there, too:

The pics I'm sending you of Al & Peg Bundy, I took with a camera that belonged to the owner (retired) of Rose Bowl.

I was employed at Rose Bowl during 1987 (as a mechanic) so I've seen it all in person. I lived across the street from the Rose Bowl at that time.
