I love The Cosby Show, and in honor of tonight’s Olympic relay races, here is a little flashback. Combustible Huxtable vs. Tailwind Turner and Combustible Huxtable & Tailwind Turner vs. Valerie Brisco Hooks. Enjoy.
Let me first say that I love John McEnroe. Here I am pictured in my Johnny Mac tee. But, over the course of many years and many hours watching and listening to him provide knowledgeable and witty tennis color commentary, I have noticed that he has some habits. And the John McEnroe Drinking Game was born. I recommend adding a Pimm’s Cup or glass of champagne to your Breakfast at Wimbledon on Friday morning for the Djokovic vs. Federer match.
Take one sip:
If he mentions a player’s height.
If he brings up his nostalgia for wooden rackets or gut strings.
Take two sips:
If he makes a proclamation. (He is playing the best tennis of his life! He is the best returner on tour!)
If he talks about his wish to add a fifth set tie break.
If he mentions practicing with a current tour player.
Take three sips:
If he mentions Jimmy Connors or Vitas Gerulaitis.
If he says: “This could be Andy Roddick’s year!”
Remember a couple of weeks ago when I posted about taking Stickers to a TV station to shoot a promo? Well, Stickers is now officially a TV star! And we think our precious girl looks adorable in her spot…even though she does have questionable taste in programming…
It was very very exciting to catch her promo a couple times already. Lots of hooting and hollering.
We have officially become stage parents. Today, Pete, Stickers, and I spent the afternoon in the glamorous WCIU studios (surrounded by Svengooli props) waiting to shoot her U Dog promo. If you’re not familiar, these promos air during commercial breaks on this local, syndication and reruns-heavy television channel. We are hoping for “Here’s Stickers! She loves Seinfeld!” But we will laugh if we end up seeing “Here’s Stickers! She loves Judge Mathis!” Everyone at the U was so nice, and the shoot was fun. Though Stickers did run off afterwards, and Pete had to chase her across their morning show set.
There is just too much going on in Chicago this weekend! Awesome problem, I know.
Red Sox at Cubs. We’ll be there cheering on our beleaguered Cubbies on Saturday night.
Artists of the Wall Festival in Rogers Park at Loyola Beach. This is where I’ll be spending most of my weekend—painting a bench.
