Re: How Many Of You Played "The Chipmunk Song" 45 At 33 RPM?

Hmm, never tried it. What did it sound like, a normal voice?

Interesting tidbit: Ross Bagdasarian played the piano player across the courtyard in the classic Hitchcock film Rear Window.

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

I had no idea 7-11 was healthy enough financially to pull something like this off (around here, most 7-11s went away at some point in the past 10-15 years). 7-Eleven's Japanese parent company is Seven & I Holdings, a H*** multi-national retail conglomerate. Their $21 billion offer for Speedway is m...

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

Speaking of gas stations, it sounds like your Speedway is as busy as the one near me. When you do run in there and don't get gas, do you still park at a pump? I do. It just seems so much easier to drive forward to leave, as opposed to parking in front of the store, and then trying to see what's beh...

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

As far as 7-11's without gas, I could see them both staying open across the street from each other. Myself, if I'm not getting gas, I don't want to deal with the traffic in a gas station lot. I'll go to a party store. But you wouldn't get your Speedy Rewards. :8) I can tell you unequivocally that m...

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

Didn't Marathon own Speedway? Yes - was a subsidiary until earlier this year then was spun off to became a wholly owned subsidiary. According to the articles I read, 7-Eleven was going to buy it in March but COVID-19 hit, They paid a Billion less in August for it. Speedway was never spun off to sha...

Detroit Pistons '20-'21

After new GM Troy Weaver's recent flurry of FA signings and trades stemming from the draft, I'm trying to figure out who is still on the team from last year! :shock: Off the top of my head, all I can think of is Doumbouya. [edit] Oh yeah, and Blake Griffin...but that was kind of a given. :razz Derri...

Re: Next Jeopardy! host

I'll go with Ken Jennings. He's very likable, personable, and would put the contestants at ease. My alternatives are Dan Patrick, LaVar Burton, and John O'Hurley. I'm afraid I can't get the image of O'Hurley as J. Peterman out of my head. :razz I'll also go with Ken Jennings who is so identified wi...

Re: Alex Trebek dies of cancer

Terrible loss to television who'll certainly be missed by all who love the greatest game show that ever was. |I RIP

I was wondering to myself if Sony might approach erstwhile Jeopardy! uber-champion Ken Jennings to be the new host; he's apparently now employed on the show's staff.

Re: Get Matt Patricha fired!!

It's always SOMETHING with this team! >: Stafford's red zone interceptions are the latest in a long series of game deflators. Dropped passes by Amendola and Swift (again!) in crucial situations are just an extension of something that has been plaguing this team for years...the Curse of Bobby Layne! ...
