Perhaps it was inevitable. Certainly it’s understandable. Regardless, triple-gold medalist Florence Griffith Joyner will make what’s being called her “television acting debut” in a guest-starring spot on NBC’s series “227.” Griffith Joyner, who won three gold medals in track events at the Seoul Olympics, will play herself as she pays a visit on series character Brenda, an aspiring track star, and tells her that there’s more than one way to be a winner. Series star Marla Gibbs is credited with the story idea. The unscheduled episode will be taped Nov. 1.
