It started on Ditch Day. The date was May 16, 1997. Glenn Eychaner was the evil enemy that my Mission Impossible (the television series) stack needed to defeat. Worried that there might be no woman on the team to play Cinnamon Carter, I sent Sarah Yoder to help out in a seduction scene.
Rumors are that Sarah did a good job, a very good job. Sarah and Glenn left the next day for San Francisco. Glenn took the Mission Impossible Team and I out to dinner the next week where he and Sarah revealed the news. He started by telling me that "It was all my fault." I had no idea what he meant. After repeating "It was all my fault" several times, he finally revealed the news to me by kissing Sarah rather deeply for a very, very long time. I was shocked. I was also a severely sleep deprived senior desperately trying to graduate -- so I had a glazed look on my face. I'm told the expressions I made that night were priceless.
On Sunday, July 12, 1998, I recieved the phone call from Hawaii. Glenn and Sarah were engaged.
I was appointed best man. My fellow groomsmen were Sean Upchurch, Dan Dilling, Ward Burrows and Ken Andrews. It seemed that for the bachelor party, none of us really wanted scantily clad wemon running around. Also, there wasn't a great desire for large quantities of alcohol. After much discussion, we decided on "Glenn Eychaner: The Stack" for a bachelor party. It took place on May 20, 2000 at Caltech.
On Sunday May 28, 2000, Glenn Eychaner and Sarah Yoder married on the beach in Malibu.
