Ben #7,

Now I believe I have heard it all . . .

"They totally should have won, and in fact got a louder cheer, but the meter was screwed up & mistook a couple of screams & whistle for actual crowd enthusiasm."

Must have been one of those dumb ass Republican meters made in Florida! Probably full of hanging electrons.

Will this be argued as long as the last Presidential election?

You are a beautiful thing Ben #7.

The meter totally thought they were booing at Michael Moore!

I thought your moments were too fleeting to get a good look, plus I was constantly engaged in a running battle with my co-workers who kept asking why we were watching this shit. "A guy I know's on here."

From then on, my mission was to point at you on the TV screen for the approximately 1.5 seconds you were in the frame. I just remember seeing the back of your head a lot and wondering what the hell you were doing patting that man's stomach and then wondering if that was really you or some other guy's back. I kept looking for the blond hair, but alas, you had that damned ball cap on.

All in all, I was amazed I was able to watch that show long enough to get a good look before they announced the finalists and I turned the channel.

Thanks for the effort, Paul! I still haven't seen it.... As for the stomach, I was actually trying to karate-chop the Tim Allen-looking Affleck right in the solar plexus/chest cavity area. We did that scene three times, and I think I only landed it perfectly (plus had the element of surprise going for me) on Take One. I don't know if it came off in the show, but that dude was funny as hell, and actually pretty smart.
