Here’s a new series I’m starting, on the spur of the moment. It won’t be a regular thing, just whenever I hear something that makes me think, “Geez, I wish I’d have said that.”
A few minutes ago I was driving home from the Y, listening to Schopp and the Bulldog on WGR (Buffalo’s all-sportstalk AM radio station, for you non-Buffalonians), and of course, they were talking about the Super Bowl. One thing they discussed, in passing, was the fact that Super Bowl XLII was the highest-rated Super Bowl ever, and was the second highest-rated TV show ever, ranking behind, of course, the original airing of the M*A*S*H series finale. And Schopp says: “Well, we know that the 1972 Dolphins got to pop the corks on their champagne yesterday. Do you suppose that Jamie Farr and Alan Alda pop the corks too, when they learn their show is still the highest-rated ever?”
I thought that was funny.
