1977/2017

WINNERS & LOSERS

Two popular "battle of the sexes" tennis matches took place in 1973. The man in both matches was a 55-year-old (former #1) retired pro and master self-promoter. The woman in the first match (May 13) was the top female player in the world and 3-time Wimbledon champion. The woman in the second match (September 20) was a 5-time Wimbledon champion (including that summer).

WILL & GRACE, eh

A Canadian-American actress, who later played the dual roles of Sharon "Boomer" Valerii and Sharon "Athena" Agathon on the Battlestar Galactica reboot, was born in 1974.

Ron Howard

Ha! You almost had me second guessing my Opie Fun Facts with that Han Solo thing

Name the movie for which he won the Academy Award for Best Director. (3 points)

A Beautiful Mind


WINNERS & LOSERS

Two popular "battle of the sexes" tennis matches took place in 1973. The man in both matches was a 55-year-old (former #1) retired pro and master self-promoter. The woman in the first match (May 13) was the top female player in the world and 3-time Wimbledon champion. The woman in the second match (September 20) was a 5-time Wimbledon champion (including that summer).

Name the winner and loser of Battle of the Sexes I. (2 points each)

Bobby Riggs and Margaret Court

I wouldn't have remembered this (if I ever even knew it) until I saw Elizabeth Shue on Rich Eisen a week or so ago talking about the movie and nudged me to read up on it.

Name the winner and loser of Battle of the Sexes II.

Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs(2 points each)

BoTS Bonus: Name the two leading actors in the recent movie titled "Battle of the Sexes".

Emma Stone (who apparently won Best Picture last year) and Steve Carell(3 points each)

I've only seen adverts and teasers for this, but it's kind of amazing how Carell can equally embody both Riggs and John Du Pont


WORDS & MUSIC

1973
The March 29, 1973 cover of a popular rock magazine featured a band in caricature rather than a photograph. It was accompanied by the caption "What's-Their-Names Make the Cover."

Name the band.

Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show (2 points)

Name the song that applies.

Cover of the Rolling Stone(2 points)

Name the songwriter.

Shel Silverstein(3 points)

Fun Fact: Buck Owens did a version called Cover of the Music City News. I don't know if he made the cover (probably) but I doubt that magazine is still around thse days.


WILL & GRACE, eh

A Canadian-American actress, who later played the dual roles of Sharon "Boomer" Valerii and Sharon "Athena" Agathon on the Battlestar Galactica reboot, was born in 1974.


Also in 1974, a Canadian actor starred in Impulse, in which a paranoid, leisure-suit-wearing "khaaaaaaaaaaaaaan"-man/gigolo named Matt Stone seduces lonely women, "khaaaaaaaaaaaaaans" them of their savings via an investment scam, then kills them.

Name the actress. (3 points)

Sharon "Timbit" Grace

Name the actor. (3 points)

Will Shatner

What? Ricardo Montalban isn't Canadian! was my first thought....ha!
