NEW YORK -- 'Gong Show' host Chuck Barris has married his roommate of three years thanks to a touchdown pass by football quaterback Jim Plunkett, the game show producer said Saturday.
'We were driving down a road listening to a San Diego-Oakland game,' Barris said. 'I said, 'Red, that's what I call her -- her name is Robin Altman -- 'Red, if Jim Plunkett makes this pass I'll marry you.'
Plunkett made the pass.
'We lived together for three years. It was about time,' said Barris, who added that he proposed three times before but backed down.
Barris said the two were married Friday in a private ceremony. It was the third marriage for Barris, 51, and the first for Miss Altman, 28.
