"So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take this anymore!'"

Name the movie. (2 points)

Name the character. (2 points)

Name the actor. (2 points)


COMING & GOING


1973-1988 (When one streak ends another begins)

A British band's album topped the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes charts in 1973 and remained on the charts for a record 741 straight weeks until 1988. That year, an MLB team lost a record number of games to open the season.

WINNERS & LOSERS

I loved Donny Osmond. There, I said it. I even had a picture of him on my wall when I was like 9 years old. Not even a poster, but a page torn from my cousin's Tiger Beat. Because I was like, 9.....ha!

Secretariat and Sham

Sham was a tremendous horse, with the tremendous bad luck to be in the same age group age Secretariat. I think, but I'm not sure, that Sham had the second largest heart ever recorded. Once again, trailing only Secretariat.....
