Greg Brady Is Old & So Am I - 09/30/13

   Greg Brady turns 59 today.  His real name is Barry Williams, but we know him best as the older brother on The Brady Bunch.   I can't believe he's nearly 60.  In our minds, he's the perpetual teenager, zits and all.

   Gosh, how I looooooved that show.  Like so many other things, 'They just don't make 'em like they used to.'  Shows... that is.  With the exception of Gilligan's Island, The Brady Bunch is still my all time favorite.  I would watch episode after episode and secretly pray that we would get an Alice at our house too.

   Unlike shows nowadays that are here today and gone tomorrow, The Brady Bunch had staying power or at least I thought it did.  Imagine my surprise when I googled it and found out it only had a five season run, 1969 - 1974.  Everything seems to last forever when you're young and The Brady Bunch seemed no different.

    It was a staple of my childhood.  A show that even managed to tackle the touchy subject of blended families back then, without any profanity, sex or inuendo.  What a feat. Whatever happened to TV shows the whole family could sit down and watch?  Shows that took you somewhere mentally instead of straight to the bedroom.  When you get right down to it, there's really no family programming on anymore.

   Throughout its five year run, we never actually saw Greg kiss anyone, though we saw him go out on many dates.   I know, I sound so old fashioned.  That's because I am.  I just read where many scenes were shot in the bathroom, yet we never saw a toilet.  That's because network censors at the time wouldn't allow a toilet to be seen on television.  No Joke!

    Some things ARE better today.  I'll take computers over typewriters any day.  I like push button phones better than the old rotary ones.  But, I've got to tell ya, when it comes to TV--- those old fashioned people knew what they were doing back then.  We could learn a thing or two from them and so could today's children.

SUPER BOWL-MEDIA DAY MOMENTS

PHOENIX (AP) -- If the Super Bowl is the show -- then Media Day has to be the sideshow. Media Day has the reputation for wild and whacky questions. In 2008, Mexican TV personality Ines Gomez Mont showed up in a white bridal gown and asked Tom Brady to marry her. The Patriots quarterback politely declined the proposal. But did Gomez Mont put a hex on Brady? The Patriots lost to the New York Giants to ruin their perfect season. They lost again to the Giants in the Super Bowl four years later. A today's Media Day, many of the questions surely will be about deflated footballs. But perhaps there will be a wacky twist.

SUPER BOWL-SECURITY

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Some big hitters are going to the Super Bowl -- and we're not talking linebackers. Black Hawk helicopters and truck-sized X-ray machines will be put to use to help secure the big game Sunday. U.S. Customs and Border Protection showed off some of their heavy metal yesterday. The X-ray machines are mobile and the size of a large truck. They're usually on the U.S.-Mexico border, scanning for contraband and explosives. The Black Hawks and other copters will be the eyes in the sky. The big choppers will also be used to enforce the no-fly zone in the area around the University of Phoenix Stadium.

FACEBOOK POST-JAIL

MINERAL WELLS, Texas (AP) -- There are somethings you might not want to boast about on Facebook. Authorities in North Texas report busting 22-year-old Eddie Smith, after he posted on Facebook that he had more than a dozen warrants out for his arrest. Detective Nick Wells tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram a concerned citizen saw the post and notified authorities. Wells says Smith was wanted on 14 city warrants. They ranged from traffic tickets to petty theft and totaled more than $1,200 in fines. A judge has ordered Smith to serve 51 days in jail.

ARMED ROBBERY-WALLET E0850

MONROE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Don't you just hate it when you leave your wallet at a gas station? Police in Monroe Township, Michigan, charge a young bandit left his wallet behind during a stickup. Authorities say 19-year-old Cody Wilson forgot his wallet on a counter, after initially asking to buy cigarettes. According to police, another suspect pulled a gun and the two demanded money. They took the loot, but left the wallet. The Monroe News reports Wilson and 20-year-old Derek Beach were arraigned yesterday on armed robbery charges.
