"The guy I was speaking to even looked a little bit like me. It's too bad I never caught his name." Witnesses reported that at one point Silvan briefly interrupted his conversation about how Tim Riggins might be one of the most tragic characters in television history when he mistakenly thought he overheard an attractive woman mention Battlestar Galactica.
