    1. Manny Mota. (Of course, that couldn't have happened in real life because the two were never MLB teammates)

    What movie did director Bob Clark agree to make in exchange for the studio financing "A Christmas Story."?

    This will generate page views, bring back old members, and put some change in Jeff's pocket at Christmastime.

    It was actually the sequel "Porky's 2: The Next Day." Clark had been trying to sell "A Christmas Story," but none of the studios would take it. Then he made Porky's, which became a big hit, and when the studio wanted him to do the sequel, he said he would only do it if they financed "ACS" first.

    I did not know that.

    And, I'm becoming increasingly concerned that no one has answered the easiest of my 3 questions.
