One response to “Episode 349: Florence The Machine

  1. WITHOUT LIMITS QUIZ (answers in 2nd email)

    hey guys

    Kevin said awhile back that ‘every extra in Without Limits is faster than all of us.’ If I hear that again, someone’s going to end up in Sacred Heart Hospital….seriously, that’s one extra who isn’t faster than anyone…however, he’s paid his dues as a 40+ year official at Hayward.

    Speaking of extras….i think I have another puzzler for you (answers will be provided in email #2):

    After Pre’s first college race, when the camera captures his slow motion realization that the crowd loves him, and the world record trumpet solo is playing….
    a) Who is the dark-haired shaggy guy with the glasses cheering his guts out? (the camera focuses on him)

    b) What was his contribution to the fashion world?

    c) Who was the first person to wear the item and when?

    I might just have you stumped on this one. See next email for answers…
