Happy 4th of July!

I hope you all have something awesome to do today.  I just found a Jaws marathon on AMC, so now I know what I’ll be doing from 9:30 am til 5:00 pm today.  That’s Jaws I-III, for those of you keeping score at home.  Jaws IV sucks balls.  II and III suck balls too, but in that so-bad-they’re-awesome way.*  IV just sucks big fat donkey balls.  Michael Caine should be ashamed of himself.  At 5:00 pm my relatives are coming over and we’re grilling succulent pork loin, eating my mom’s killer potato salad, drinking all the sangria we can drink and watching Cubs/Cards.  It’s a good day.

But in case you don’t have any good plans or you just want something to entertain you while you put up with your yucky relatives, here is a very fun activity that it took me the better part of yesterday to complete.  It is an NCAA Helmet Quiz (just click and “save” to your desktop) where you identify the school that goes with each helmet.  Trust me, it’s harder than it sounds.

Please refrain from posting answers in the comments because some people don’t like having things like this spoiled for them; the fun is figuring it out on your own.

Answers will be at the end of my Monday post.  Have a great holiday weekend!

*Jaws I is simply a phenomenal movie and I could go on for 40 pages about why (I did once in a paper for a film class) but I shall refrain from that here.  Jaws II still has Roy Scheider (such a crush on him in these movies) and teenagers a-plenty for the shark to gobble up.  Jaws III is in freakin’ Sea World and features shirtless Dennis Quaid, young Lea Thompson, Louis Gossett Jr. and Angela Chase’s Mom.  Awesome.  Turn on AMC.  Right now.  Do it.

  1. I’m sitting at home, doing laundry. Then I’m going to work and missing seeing my favorite pitcher in the whole entire world start. No drinking, no grilling, no lighting fireworks (though I *do* get to watch a show at work tonight). I suck at being independent. :(

  2. My first initial pass I got 35, just split second answers. Going back through I was up to 43 very quickly. The last 7 took me awhile and a couple were no-brainers that I just couldn’t see. The last one I got was just giving me fits (I was convinced the maker had the answer wrong) and then I finally changed the way I was looking at it (figuratively) and it clicked.

  3. Besides a trip to the zoo and a late lunch with my sister and nephew, I’ve been flipping between the Revolution, on the History Channel, and Law and Order, on TNT. God Bless America.

    By the way, Andie, I liked Jaws so much that I watched it in Spanish once. Good times.

  4. oh it took me at least a good 30 minutes or so to figure out the last 3 and the last one was done by just putting guesses until i got it right.

  5. 48 of 50, and one of the two I missed on the first run-through was the team my Dynasty was with in my last NCAA Football game, too…

    Also, one of those teams is no longer I-A.
