FNGD Q5 - Friday July 18 - No MORE THEME

#1 Post by etaoin22 » Fri Jul 18, 2008 9:33 pm

Q5 - STARS OF AN ERA

A slight shift is in the works. No more Hamiltons.

B - This fighter was said to pick his opponents from the "Bum-Of-Th-Month-CLub",and (given that the idea of :"entourage" was decades away from being hip), to be surrounded by "a bunch of bums".

G - WW II Airmen probably werent thinking "bums" when they nicknamed their inflatable life rafts after this sexy comedienne-singer.

I'll guess Rocky Marciano.

This I know from reading books again. I later read one of the WWII books that proliferated during the 50s called The Raft. The guy talked about his Mae West.

I simply don't understand why the Hamilton theme has been discontinued. After all, we were all doing so brilliantly with it.

Excellent bottom-of-the-ninth home run, Sliver!

Way to go, Goils!

Sorry, Second Chance. My fast ball wasn't workin' tonight. But hope you had fun anyway.

4 points for both halves of the question.

Silver is quite a girl. Like Paul Smon said.

The quotation about bunch of bums for the entourage of a fighter, especially Mr. Louis comes from those wiseacre NY sportswriter types AFAIK.

Mr. G. F Handel wrote an oratorio called Judas Maccabeus which unlike Messiah did not simply crib from the Bible for lyrics. The lyricist came up with one well-renowned couplet at the end, in a chorus, to a nice hummable theme:

" See, the Conqu'ring Hero Comes
Sound the Trumpets, Beat the Drums.


maybe previous sources, I dont know

The wiseacre version

See, the Conqu'ring Hero Comes
Surrounded by a bunch of bums


And that is that for this week. Thanks to all for playing.
