saturday 9: main event

Saturday 9: The Main Event (1979)

1) This is the theme from a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of boxing. Sam admits she’s not crazy about boxing. What about you? Do you enjoy boxing, martial arts or wrestling?
no, i don’t. i don’t like watching people get beat up.

2) If you went to a dance club on a Saturday night in 1979 or 1980, you might well have danced to this. What are your plans for this Saturday night?
taking my mom out for her birthday with my sisters and their families.

3) Gilda Radner was one of the original Saturday Night Live performers and in 1979, she parlayed her TV popularity into her own one-woman show on Broadway. Who is your alltime favorite SNL cast member?
i only really watched it from the late 90s to early 00s, when i used to have trouble sleeping. i don’t know about all time favorite but i remember liking darrell hammond–he just seemed likable, and he played so many different characters, including, of course, bill clinton. i also liked ana gasteyer and molly shannon.

4) Sally Little and Nancy Lopez were at the top of the LPGA in 1979. Do you golf?
no. ’tis a good walk spoiled.

5) The movie The Main Event co-starred Ryan O’Neal. He is better known for Love Story, and saying the line, “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” When did you last apologize?
yesterday. i apologize a lot. it’s too early in the morning here right now for me to have already apologized to someone. 😛

6) O’Neal got his big break on the nighttime soap opera, Peyton Place. He played Rodney Harrington, the handsome golden boy that all the girls dreamed of dating. Tell us about your big high school crush.
well, funnily enough, i just dreamed about him last night. he was quite popular, with dark hair and lovely, light eyes. he had a way of looking at me that would set my heart fluttering–i could never hold his gaze. he made me way too nervous.

7) In researching this week’s Saturday 9, Sam discovered that The Main Event is a popular name for sports bars all across the country. Do you enjoy sitting at the bar or do you look for a booth or table?
well, i don’t go to many that have both, but i think i’d rather a booth or table. i like to lean back.

8) The Mane Event was the salon Sam went to for years. She switched when it got too hard to get Saturday appointments. As a consumer, what’s more important to you — convenience or price?
price…i don’t have much $ so it has to be price, although convenience is nice, too.

9) More than 50 years after her first million-selling album, Streisand recently had a #1 hit with her current CD, Partners. What’s the last song you bought/downloaded?
last night i downloaded a song to help my son practice for founder’s day.



  1. I’ve been with my hairdresser for more than 20 years and I know her prices are exceptionally low for me. 😉

  2. I don’t like watching people beat each other up either, it crazy.

  3. Golf is a good walk spoiled, isn’t it! I love that answer.

  4. That sounds like a great way to spend your Saturday night. Have fun 🙂
