As Jeff Goldblum once said, "Life uhh, finds a way." Fate has a funny knack for intervening at the exact moment when it matters most.
Thanks to one Sarah Michelle Gellar, that's exactly what happened to this father-and-son duo. As Joe beautifully recalls, there was a tornado
in their area. Joe was on the series finale of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and wasn't about to stop watching over some torrential downpour.
So as his entire family and neighbors are all hiding in their storm cellar, Joe is parked in front of the TV on the edge of his seat. "After Angel goes off and all that kind of bullshit", Joe remarks, he went looking for his family. Only to find out that a massive tree had fallen on the cellar door. That's when Joe became a hero, and Sarah Michelle Gellar became a legend.
