Miller married Diane Disney in 1954. He played for the Los Angeles Rams in 1956 and in one game, with Walt in attendance, was knocked unconscious. Walt thought football was too dangerous and feared his future grandchildren could grow up without a father. He asked Miller to give up football and come work for him -- and Miller agreed.

The Disney Presidents who served for the shortest time were Donn Tatum and Michael Ovitz. Is one of them your cousin? Of course The Walt Disney Company always has a single President and CEO but then there are dozens of presidents who oversee different divisions: ABC News, ABC Entertainment, ESPN, Marvel, Radio Disney, Walt Disney Imagineering, The Disney Channel, Walt Disney World, et cetera.

Wolf was a 1989-90 CBS series starring Jack Scalia as private detective and former cop Tony Wolf. Are you saying you could be related to a fictitious television character? Wow, there's just so much about you I don't know!
