Our Annual Dude Hates Cancer Fundraiser Starts Tonight!

unnamed-1

Hey gang, we’re kicking off our annual Dude Hates Cancer Fundraiser tonight. We’ll have raffle tickets for sale…$5 each or 6 for $20. Whoever wins the raffle will get 24 gift certificates to 24 of the best restaurants in Philadelphia. Basically free dinner twice a month for the next year. Not a bad deal. More importantly, all of the money raised goes to fight blood cancer. We’ve had a long relationship with these guys, they do a terrific job of raising money for a tremendous cause, and I am excited to work with them again this year.

The Alfred Hitchcock Round

alfred-hitchcock-02

Here’s a round from Sunday’s quiz at Heritage, the Hitchcock round.

I’ll give you the names of two stars, then give you a hint about the film title or at least part of the title that has nothing to do with the film. For example, if I said, “Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery; Hint is Jaden’s parents.” You’d write down “Mr and Mrs. Smith.”

1. Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. HINT: Ready to Die

2. Jimmy Stewart and John Dahl; HINT: you’ll find it in the game of Clue.

3. Ray Milland and Grace Kelly; HINT: technically it’s the number 6.

4. Jimmy Stewart, Doris Day; HINT: no one can ever accuse Trump of being this.

5. Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh; HINT: Sid Vicious

6. Jimmy Stewart, Kim Novak; HINT: it’s a problem in part of the vestibular system.

7. Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren; HINT: you might hear Eagles fans discussing them.

8. Carie Grant, Eva Marie Saint; HINT: Little Kanye

9. Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly; HINT: you’d put your Calvin pissing on the Cowboys logo decal here.

10. Robert Donat, Madeline Carrol; HINT: 33 less than the Art Museum.

JGTSI

Here ya go, our final rankings from the JGTSI. Invites will be going out today. If you didn’t get an invite, there is still hope: any team that wins next week will get earn an automatic invite. I also know for a fact that a few teams currently on the bubble are almost certainly gonna get in.

Teams in orange have been invited, teams in green have accepted their invitation, teams in the blue are on the bubble.

Looking at scores of the past few weeks, your best bets to get a win appear to be O’Neals, City Tap House, and Birra. Good luck!
