  • Notes

    • REVIEW: Based on their opening performance, this was one night were the panel looked as if they might have had a winning night. Unfortunately, their success in the first game didn't carry over to subsequent rounds. In the first game, the panel only used two panelists, Arlene and guest panelist Abe Burrows, to correctly guess that the young lady from Texas via Illinois was an usher at the newly opened Houston Astrodome. The Astrodome was to be the home of the Houston Astros, formerly called the Houston Colt .45's. In the second game, the panel's success came to a screeching halt. Ironically, if Bennett had asked his question the right way, the panel might have guessed that the contestant was responsible for restoring and repairing windmills. In the mystery guest round, the panel really was put through the ringer as they were totally stumped by opera legend Marian Anderson. Miss Anderson was in the middle of her farewell tour and was on the show to promote this event. John paid her a huge compliment by saying that she was a national treasure for representing the United States. At least the show ended on a high note, following an overall lackluster game performance by the panel. - Sargebri (2006)

      THE ASTRODOME: The Houston Astrodome still stands today despite the fact that no teams call it home. The first team to leave the Astrodome was the Houston Oilers of the National Football League. In 1996, after years of dispute with the city of Houston over the construction of a new football stadium for the team, owner Bud Adams moved the team from Houston to Tennessee - first to Memphis and later to Nashville - and the team eventually changed their name to the Tennessee Titans. The Astros would move out of the Astrodome in 1999, but not out of Texas. They would move across town to a brand new retractable roof stadium. That stadium originally was named Enron Field. However, when that scandal ridden company went bankrupt, orange juice maker Minute Maid stepped in as the new title sponsor and the stadium was renamed Minute Maid Park. - Sargebri (2006)

      KILGALLEN WATCH!!! Once again, Dorothy was missing due to her purported shoulder injury. However, with all the information released about her personal life in later years, her absence might have been due to "other factors." Of course, time continues to march closer to her sad and unfortunate passing in November 1965. - Sargebri (2006)
