BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.

The Budweiser people went bold in late 2001 to create a special tribute ad exclusively for the 2002 Superbowl. Though replayed many times, this video aired as a commercial only once.

You can view it today at BBHQ.

This Week with the Chicowitz

Things We'll Learn

All the day care centers, gun control laws, metal detectors, warning labels, regulations, police, inspections, and curfews in the world cannot make up for a failure in parenting. Every time we demand another government program or law to control some aspect of our kids’ lives, we are acknowledging a failure in parenting.

Raising our kids is the most important thing we will ever do. Every time we delegate some of that responsibility to a day care center, a baby sitter, a relative, a school, a computer, a television, or a government... we lose some ability to mold their character. If we care about our kids, we should fervently guard and retain as much of that responsibility as possible.

I Remember... September 21...

When we remember events of our childhood, music almost always comes to mind.

Take for instance, Monday Night Football. Think of it, and immediately, the theme music to Monday Night Football comes to mind.

Perry Mason. Think of the TV show, and immediately, the theme music comes to mind.

Perry Mason premiered on September 21, 1957. Monday Night Football premiered on September 21, 1970.

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser
 
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:

1. First, our current events question:
Congress authorized half a billion dollars to train Syrian fighters to take on ISIS. So far, the frugal U.S. military has spent only $41 million. As of last week, about how many trained U.S.-trained Syrian fighters remain on the ground and ready to fight?
    4 or 5... or maybe as many as 9.
    60.
    600.
    6,000.
    enough to do the job.

2. As a logical followup, we offer this boomer-era song title: Is that All There Is. Who had a hit with that song in 1969?

3. As a followup to our "I Remember" entry, who played the part of Perry Mason in the TV series?

There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.

Members can play all of our trivia games in The BBHQ Trivia Library.
