Yo, I don't get credit for the submission of "Ted Danson's Bet"
on your site.
other night at the GoatHill Tavern in Costa Mesa, Joe Giessner was
drunkenly bragging about Little Hong's prowess at this movie/actor game
similar to 6 Degrees of K Bacon popular at NetApp.
innocently remarked that Dan Hong couldn't name 5 Ted Danson movies(don't
ask me why I came up with him other than I used to be a big Sam Malone
Giessner belligerently insisted on betting me $10 and immediately called
supposedly sleeping Hong at his apartment.
agreed Dan would have 5 minutes and TV movies, particularly "Gulliver's
Travels", would not count.
Well, Hong instantly named "3 Men and a Baby"
and "3 Men and a Little Lady"
as any movie amateur would. When he named "Saving Private Ryan",
impressed, but when he named "Made in America", I got scared.
diet-weakened Hong had to admit defeat after that.
fell victim to one of the classic blunders: never go in against
Casella when movies are on the line!
