Being as I read the article, I am obliged to exempt myself from answering.

Rodak said...

Impressive, though, wasn't it? I guess I shouldn't have included the link. But I wanted to acknowledge the man more than I wanted to be "clever" under the circumstances.

I'll do some Phillies for you next time, Moose.

Lynne H. said...

I'm new so can I be exempt from guessing the wrong answer?

Rodak said...

No, Lynne, I'm sorry. Wrong answers are mandatory for all new people.

Welcome!

Lynne H. said...

Ok..you insist.. Bob, I'll take Jackie Gleason for a hundred? (did i win?)

Rodak said...

No, you didn't win. But we have to admire your spunk.

(what the hell is the right answer so I can go to work tomorrow and pretend to be smart in BB?)

Graham Womack said...

Someone's probably already said it, but Houk was a major in the army.

Rodak said...

Indeed he was, Graham--and a bit of a war hero, at that.
