Canadians at Hong Kong 1941 This is the tail end of an excellent Canadian documentary about the defense of Hong Kong in 1941. In December 1941, some 2,000 green Canadian troops were sent to bolster the exotic British outpost against an expected Japanese attack. It was a suicide mission. The Japanese attacked with about 90,000 battle-hardened troops. The heroic defense of Hong Kong lasted about three weeks before the inevitable surrender. Japanese troops brutally murdered wounded hospitalized defenders. Captured Canadian and British troops were shipped to slave labor camps where they existed in horrid conditions for nearly four years. Lest we forget...

Whatever Happened to Remember the Sprint Guy? Until September of 2005, he was the spokescharacter for Sprint wireless phones, the guy who solved pesky cellular problems wherever and whenever they arose. He was ubiquitous, appearing in 155 commercials over a period of six years. More than that, he was an icon of the Internet age, the Mr. Whipple, the Joe Isuzu, the Madge or Mikey of his time. One day The Sprint Guy was gone, dropped like a bad connection. He went away quietly, without making a scene, which is just how you'd expect him to go. He was, it seems, a victim of corporate politics. Sprint bought Nextel for $35 billion, and as a result, things changed. Sprint Guy was great when Sprint was selling its services primarily to household customers. But Nextel began focusing on the business market, and so the company decided they needed a new image. Spring Guy was put on 'hiatus' for an indefinite period.

Look Homeward Angel A month or so ago I posted this song by The Monarchs, whom I thought had first released it in the 60's, but it was actually released in 1957 by one of my early favorite's Johnnie Ray (yes I'm deeply ashamed and apologize for my apparent loss of memory cells). It was charted at #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January of '57. This is how this song should sound...

Definition This excellent Canadian game show ran for 17 years on CTV from 1973 to 1990. Two teams of two competed. The object of the game was to solve a pun by adding letters to the board. (Many of the clever puns were submitted by viewers.) You might recognize host Jim Perry from his work on American game shows. The smooth-voiced announcer is Dave DeVol who holds the world record for the longest tenure as a TV weatherman. Oh yes: the 26th letter of the alphabet is "zed" in Canada.
