  1. Good Morning, G. 18..But only due to the PLUS. Really interesting with the play on words, right? I never thought of this before. I give it a SOLID 10! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


    • Good morning Angela – Quiz=15. I was BAFFLED by #9.
      My first thought was โ€œAh, the anti-nursery rhyme category.โ€ Then they managed to pollute the subject with one anyway! (#3) ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Hereโ€™s another take on Cousins from Bruce Jenkins:
      โ€œI met (Cousins) at the Giantsโ€™ ballpark a couple months ago,โ€ said Guber, who happens to be a primary partner in the Dodgersโ€™ ownership group. โ€œMagic (Johnson) and I were sitting with him during the game, just talking baseball and sports, and he was a totally charming guy. Up close and personal, itโ€™s a lot different than his court presence. This is a super-talented guy. A star. Bringing him here, itโ€™s like … I donโ€™t know, โ€˜The Dirty Dozenโ€™?โ€
      Guber referred to the 1967 action film about a group of World War II soldiers assigned to parachute across enemy lines into Germany, with a star-studded cast including Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, Telly Savalas and John Cassavetes.
      โ€œI hope he doesnโ€™t wind up like Trini Lopez,โ€ I ventured. Lopezโ€™ character parachuted into some thorny vegetation and was killed before he could hit the ground.
      โ€œNo, no, no,โ€ said Guber. โ€œI think heโ€™s Clint Eastwood.โ€ ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ


      • Steve…Maybe because I’m already running on empty, but I’m not getting the Clint Eastwood thing. I remember Trini Lopez getting strangked…in an apple tree I think it was, but the rest? And I take it your “pleased” about Cousins marrying into your “family”? ๐Ÿ˜‚ As for the Quiz?? I was CONFUSED by 9, really! I guessed, and I saw the LIGHT! And 3 was a cute LITTLE question, no? Seems like they’re just out to get you! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


      • I just assumed without thinking that Clint was in the movie, but now that you mention it… If he wasnโ€™t, I guess Guber just meant a generic hero. Off to Peetโ€™s.. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ


      • Hey Steve…No, I think he was…I just don’t get the punch line! And I’m not UP to Googling it either! LOL…I’m fried already…UP 7 hours..and still juggling! Say Hey to Peet! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


      • I think he just meant that Cousins would end up having a significant role and not just a bit part like Trini Lopez.
        Nothing will ever top the discussions of soccer and hotdog eating, but John Madden and the KCBS crew were pretty amusing this morning discussing sports jerseys, and also talked about the Raidersโ€™ firing of longtime announcers Greg Papa and Tom Flores. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ


      • Oh, ok, maybe. And I think Trini was the first one to die, too..Hell of a lot of dying in that movie, right? IMO, Madden could be talking about Chocolate Milk and he’d be amusing! I’m going to check it out…Tks…๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


  2. PLAY BALL! NY is in the House! โšพ๏ธ Let’s hope there’s no brooms lurking this time!!! โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


      • Yes, it could ..We’ve drawn First Blood too…Up 3-Zip right out of the gate…But you know me, I don’t like to get carried away! As for the Brooms? I’ve got something else in mind…๐Ÿ˜‰ To the Victors!!! ๐Ÿทโšพ๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


    • Good morning Angela – Greetings to Staten ISLAND! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Quiz=18. Missed #1,6,11,13,15. Yes, #6 gets me every time; I always think Crete or Cyprus.
      At least you beat me by a point.

      • Hey G, Good Morning. If I beat you, it’s by pure luck. Majority of my answers were guesses…Not my wheelhouse…No whispering.๐Ÿ˜‰ ..Wayyyy too soon. A bit of a nail biter there in the 8th..Deja vu all over again, but they prevailed…We shall see..I really don’t see the Yankees rolling over to die…โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป
