It apparently is "father's day" here at TVGuide.com. Just hours after I posted the scoop on Papa Walton playing Gibbs' dad on NCIS, this other bit of paternity news hit my desk: Eric Braeden of The Young and the Restless fame has scored a gig on How I Met Your Mother, playing Robin's father. His name? Robin Charles Scherbatsky, Sr.

(Apparently Alan Thicke is only Robin Sparkles' dad, in the "Sandcastles" video.)

The storyline set-up: As Ted and the gang hide in a restaurant from... er, someone, they each take turns recounting the the one person they would most hate to run into. Robin's pick is her father, seeing as she has Daddy issues in that hers always wanted her to be a boy.

I believe I speak for all of red-blooded malekind when I say, "Thank goodness she wasn't." Matt Mitovich
