February 25, 2009 question

Sorry about the mass trivia confusion on Monday and into Tuesday. I gave the email machine a swift kick, and it seems to be doing alright now. You be the judge.

Anyway, here's the scoop on odd couples: Oscar Madison shacked up with Felix Unger in The Odd Couple, a story that created a formula for an entire genre: the not-really-buddies buddy movie. Tommy Boy, Twins, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, and the entire Lethal Weapon series all owe their success to Felix and Oscar . . . although, I'm pretty sure none of them ever won an Oscar. Here's who knew:

Karen M (the M stands for Madison Actually Drafted The Monroe Doctrine)
Karen H (the H stands for Huh?)
Stephen K (the K stands for Knock The Monroe Doctrine At Your Peril)
Steven F (the F stands for Frazzle Razzle)
Steve J (the J stands for Just Kidding, Okay?!)
Nancy K (the K stands for Knock It Off, You Seven!)

Anyway . . . President Obama addressed the nation last night. I missed it, but I heard the rumblings. I no longer feel the need to watch the Pres on TV because he emails me like twice a day. Ugh. Like I have time for that. I have more important things to deal with, Mr. President . . . it's called trivia. Here's today's question, in honor (sort of) of the 15th anniversary of Nancy Kerrigan's silver medal performance at the 1994 Winter Olympics:

Who clubbed Nancy Kerrigan's knee at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, just over a month before the Olympic Games?

A. Shawn Eckhardt
B. Jeff Gillooly
C. Tonya Harding
D. Shane Stant
E. Jeff Stone
