    Famous Connies for $1000

    OK, to losen things up a bit... since you guys want to call me "Connie"... how about lets identify all the famous Connies. Of course there is Connie Kalitta of drag racing fame... http://www.kalittaracing.com/Connie_Kalitta.htm .

    Any other famous Connies?

    I thought it was "Sugar Connie"?

    Connie Francis?

    There is also a reference to "Sweet Connie" in the Grand Funk Railroad song "American Band"

    But my favorite Connie is from a Christian based kid's radio program, Adventures in Odyssey.

    I'm not sure, but I don't think she was inspired by the Grand Funk Railroad's song. I'll have to check on that one....

    MW - I know that you had the picture stored on your computer and you did not need to search the web.

    How said is this?

    So I figure "Connie" could be short for "Conrad", so I search and find Robert Conrad, who it turns out is actually "Conrad Robert Falk" BUT, there is no evidence of him being refer to as "Connie"



    I give....

    That's pretty funny.... what are the odds?

    Speaking of Connie Chung... did anyone see the interview she did with Bill Gates, years ago. He threw her out of his office about half way through the interview, and on camera at that. This was back when they were on the top of their "monopolize the world at any cost" game. They had just steamrolled Stack, Inc. , maker of Stacker (remember them), and she called him on it. I'm not a big fan of the pushy news reporter, so I thought it was kind of comical that he did this.
