no class = i get to go to trivia!!
Hi all, We lost our title last week. Hurts doesn’t it?
It was like the beginning of Rocky III when Balboa was viciously defeated by Clubber Lang, played convincingly by Mr. T. Rocky lost something bigger too: his manager, Mick, and his confidence. It took the return of his old nemesis, Apollo Creed, and the devotion of his wife Adrian for Rocky to once again believe in himself.
You remember the scene on the beach when Rock professed to Adrian that he was afraid of Clubber? Well, that still gets me and is perhaps the most poignant moment in film history. She believed in him and so began the famous “Gonna Fly Now” Training Montage for the third consecutive movie.
That montage has begun for us. All are invited to join us on this crusade for redemption. The category tonight is fitting: The Oscars. The film “Rocky” was one of the greatest upsets in Academy Award history when it won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1976. Let us carry on this tradition.
UPDATE: VICTORY!!!!!!! I would like to think that my immediate recognition of Belinda Carlisle's "Mad About You" during the Name That Tune round is what put us over the edge. Thank you. Wait, I mean, You're welcome.
