Re: New trivia game show is looking for contestants

Just came across this today. Serves me right for not logging on more often.
Sent the email, so we'll see what happens.

I neglected to mention that I learned about the game on this board. Does this matter enough that I should follow up with another email?

Re: Hometown howdies format change

When it came time to tape my "Howdy" I drew a complete blank. I hadn't thought to prepare one for whatever reason. They would skip me and come back later until finally they sent Glen over to work with me. He suggested "Hello New York, I'm Tom Carroll from White Plains. I never made it on the Great W...

I believe the model for the statue was Mercer's nephew , who was wearing a coat that had belonged to Mercer.

5280 = mile is one of those things from Merv Griffin telling the story of how he created the show. Taking mile to be Denver was as quick as six letters could be written. To all who missed the clue, yes, you want to have that happen at home because it's the kind every friend, family and neighbor wou...

Re: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just to continue a bit on Mr. Mercer, he wrote complete songs on his own (music and lyrics) but mostly he collaborated. The amazing thing is he wrote songs with over 90 different people. If you look at the complete list, which is substantial, you'll see that a lot of them are unfamiliar, but there a...

Re: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have to say that I'm a big fan of the prolific Johnny Mercer, and I've never heard that anyone re-named a river in his honor. There's an absolutely wonderful recording of Mercer performing at the 92nd Street Y in NYC late in his life. He performs some of his well known songs and tells some great s...

Re: Monday, April 29, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This is pretty much my post word for word. I'm a child of the 80's and feel there is a distinct possibility I'm running the category. Though, I've been thinking about the song, "She Drives me crazy" from right in that time frame and I can't remember who sang it. English group, but I can't get the n...

Re: Monday, April 29, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was able to work out the FJ clue rather quickly, after first (as others here) thinking of a ZIP code. Weird how the mind works, the first thing that came to me after getting "Denver" was a TV movie from probably 35 years ago. The name and the cast both escape me, but someone had planted a bomb on ...

My biggest struggle during the entire experience was coming up with 5 "interesting things" about myself.

I WAG'd All in the Family. :roll:
Well I certainly identified with the gray haired returning champ who fell in his second game!

And All In The Family was based on a British series called "'Till Death Us Do Part", so Jackie Gleason wouldn't have much standing in a suit.

My son Liam is a junior at Emerson College which has several buildings on Boyleston Street, not far from the site of the explosions. Thankfully the school had no classes today due to the Patriot's Day festivities in the area. I was able to speak with him shortly after 3:00 PM. He now lives off campu...
