Tribute to Merv Griffin

| 0 Comment(s)

Hey Folks

Merv Griffin, the big band-era crooner turned impresario who parlayed his "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune" game shows into a multimillion-dollar empire, died Sunday. He was 82.
Griffin died of prostate cancer, according to a statement from his family that was released by Marcia Newberger, spokeswoman for The Griffin Group/Merv Griffin Entertainment.

From his beginning as a $100-a-week San Francisco radio singer, Griffin moved on as vocalist for Freddy Martin's band, sometime film actor in films and TV game and talk show host, and made Forbes' list of richest Americans several times.

"The Merv Griffin Show" lasted more than 20 years, and Griffin said his capacity to listen contributed to his success.
"If the host is sitting there thinking about his next joke, he isn't listening," Griffin reasoned in a recent interview.

But his biggest break financially came from inventing and producing "Jeopardy" in the 1960s and "Wheel of Fortune" in the 1970s. After they had become the hottest game shows on television, Griffin sold the rights to Coca Cola's Columbia Pictures Television Unit for $250 million in 1986, retaining a share of the profits.

For my tribute to Merv Griffin here is an episode of Seinfeld where Kramer has the set from the Merv Griffin show in his appartment... enjoy!

What was I thinking?

About time. My favourite team Richmond Tigers in the AFL have scored their second win of the season.

Richmond toppled Collingwood by 20 points in the season’s major upset at the MCG.
The Tigers ambushed Collingwood with a mighty first quarter and set the tone with two goals in the first two minutes.

The 18.8 (116) to 14.12 (96) scoreline was the result of remarkable evenness across the field, but the solo effort of Nathan Foley deserved to be singled out for special mention.

I'm stoked Richmond won... really stoked.... BUT

In the footy tipping competition at work I had a dilemma. With Richmond at the bottom of the ladder with only 1 win for the year and Collingwood in the top 8 with 11 wins who was I going to go for? Why would I go for my own team when they have had the worst year ever? My rule of thumb along with the other 90% of Aussies is to NEVER EVER go for Collingwood. Not only that, to NEVER EVER tip Collingwood.

I broke my own rule and I paid the price. What was I thinking?

Since this post is sort of dedicated to Richmond. I thought I'd include a video of Legend Nathan Brown and his season ending - leg breaking accident of 2005. This video still amazes me!

WARNING: Not for the weak - Seriously!
You have been warned!!!

A 'fair dinkum' farce

An Australian woman was branded a criminal by airline officials after "swearing" on an American flight - with a classic, and utterly inoffensive, Aussie oath."Fair dinkum," New South Wales woman Sophie Reynolds muttered when told by a air hostess that there were no pretzels for her to snack on.

The next thing Ms Reynolds knew, the flight crew had demanded her passport to note down her details, telling her that swearing at attendants was a crime.

The 41-year-old, who lives in Queanbeyan, near Canberra, was stunned to find three uniformed officers waiting for her when she left the flight in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

"They said: 'You swore at the hostess and there are federal rules against that'," Reynolds told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"And I said: 'I did not swear at the hostess, I just said 'fair dinkum'." Reynolds was travelling on a Delta Connection flight on SkyWest Airlines.

A SkyWest official said the airline was still investigating the incident, telling the journal "there are two sides to every story". "Our initial reports indicate it was more than a misunderstanding of the language," SkyWest spokeswoman Marissa Snow told the journal.

"We witnessed aggressive behaviour throughout the flight." Ms Snow said the Utah-based airline, which flies under contract to Delta Air Lines, was still trying to contact Ms Reynolds. She said no charges had been filed as a result of the incident and Ms Reynolds had been allowed to go on her way after talking to police.

Think About It
