Fun facts about towhead Dan Meyer:
  • The title character in the movie "Powder" was loosely based on Dan Meyer.
  • Meyer had to play in Seattle — it was the only place where he could stay out of the sun enough to keep from being burned alive.
  • His torso was so pale, you could actually see his organs through his skin.
  • Meyer was so white, his home uniform looked gray on him.
  • Meyer grew out the mullet seen above in hopes that his hair would darken as it got longer. Instead, he ended up looking like he was wearing a doll's wig.
  • His chain is made of — wait for it — white gold.
  • Meyer portrayed the abominable snowman in TV's "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" Christmas special.
