saturday 9

The Main Event

1) This is the theme from a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of boxing. Sam admits she's not crazy about boxing. What about you? Do you enjoy boxing, martial arts or wrestling? not so much

2) If you went to a dance club on a Saturday night in 1979 or 1980, you might well have danced to this. What are your plans for this Saturday night? I don't have any plans for tonight

3) Gilda Radner was one of the original Saturday Night Live performers and in 1979, she parlayed her TV popularity into her own one-woman show on Broadway. Who is your alltime favorite SNL cast member? the whole original cast--so creative!

4) Sally Little and Nancy Lopez were at the top of the LPGA in 1979. Do you golf? no, I am not a fan of golf

5) The movie The Main Event co-starred Ryan O'Neal. He is better known for Love Story, and saying the line, "Love means never having to say you're sorry." When did you last apologize? oh, I apologize all the time

6) O'Neal got his big break on the nighttime soap opera, Peyton Place. He played Rodney Harrington, the handsome golden boy that all the girls dreamed of dating. Tell us about your big high school crush. my big high school crush was a star basketball player (naturally) and an all-around good guy; not classically good looking but his personality more than made up for it

7) In researching this week's Saturday 9, Sam discovered that The Main Event is a popular name for sports bars all across the country. Do you enjoy sitting at the bar or do you look for a booth or table? depending on how many people are with me, I usually prefer a table

8) The Mane Event was the salon Sam went to for years. She switched when it got too hard to get Saturday appointments. As a consumer, what's more important to you -- convenience or price? convenience

9) More than 50 years after her first million-selling album, Streisand recently had a #1 hit with her current CD, Partners. What's the last song you bought/downloaded? I just downloaded Ellen's The Only Holiday Album You'll Ever Need Volume 1

I inherited my parents' Christmas CDs, Bing Crosby, Perry Como, Burl Ives, and three or four others from the 50s and 60s.

Your link on Sat9 didn't work for me; I went to the previous week to get here.

Apologizing is kind of habit forming, isn't it? I get told to *stop* apologizing on occasion.

I'm with you on the convenience thing. Time is precious these days
