The Champion

1) This song is about doing what it takes to win. What's the most recent competition you won? (Yes, online solitaire counts.) huh, I'm really drawing a blank on this

2) The lyrics tell us to "go ahead and put your bets on me." Do you often play games of chance -- like the office football pool, or slot machines, or the lottery? no

3) The video includes footage of young people competing in The Special Olympics. What's your favorite sport to watch? Is it the same sport you most enjoying playing?
I love to watch ice hockey and maybe it's because I played field hockey in high school

4) This week's featured artist, Carrie Underwood, first came to America's attention when she won on American Idol. Prior to competing on that show, she'd never been on an airplane. How old were you when you took your first flight? I think I was 15

5) Carrie loves horror and her favorite author is Stephen King. What book are you currently reading? Christmas Every Day

6) Carrie's duet partner on "The Champion" is rapper Ludacris. In addition to making music, he acts and has appeared in one Sam's favorite shows, Law & Order: SVU. What's your favorite "cop show?"
right now it's the Dublin Murders on Starz

7) Ludacris is a distant cousin of comedian Richard Pryor. Have you studied your family's genealogy? I have not, but my uncle is a fanatic

8) Soccer was a big deal in 2018, the year this song was released. According to Google, "FIFA World Cup" was the news story that generated the most internet searches. What's the last thing you "googled?" Christmas Self-care Ideas That Are More Than Surviving The Holidays

9) Random question: You're battling the flu. The doctor advises you to stay in bed a full five days. As you begin feeling better (around Day 3), do you continue to follow doctor's orders? Or do you get up and start moving before you're supposed to? I probably wouldn't stay in bed, but I wouldn't contaminate other people

My cousin Rose is fanatical about genealogy, too! She even went to Poland to check out the handwritten birth records in some small town Catholic churches. Unfortunately, we aren't blood relatives, so I can't benefit from her hardwork and knowledge.

I enjoyed this.

My aunt was definitely a fanatic about family history. After she got older it was pretty much her life.

I like your google. Christmas self-care. So it has come to this.

I think we enjoy watching what we best understand, so there are many different sports "Likes" this Saturday 9.
Geneology: I think it hits you when you get older. I waited too late for mom to be able to tell me everything she knew about her family, like the fact that my Grandfather and his sisters spoke an odd dialect of a Germanic language,but she did tell me a lot.
Stay well Kwizgiver! No more of us need be down with something bad...
