Tuesday’s random trivia:

The best theory for where “Toy Story” is set is . . . Chagrin Falls, Ohio, which is a suburb of Cleveland.  The movie’s co-director is from there and there are lots of subtle references to the town that are hidden in the movie.

Speaking of the Buckeye State,

Craig Shubert is the mayor of Hudson, & he’s stepping down Because he can’t deliver a punchline. 

At the city council meeting debating on ice fishing in town, he claimed that 

if you allow ice fishing then people might want to set up ice fishing shanties next year.  And if that happens . . . it could lead to PROSTITUTION.

He later claimed that his remarks were attempts at dry humor. 

Well, it bombed. Not even a chuckle. So he quit!

Remember the old saying, “don’t quit your day job?…. He just did!”

So we all know by now The Los Angeles Rams won the Super Bowl on Sunday evening and now Lebron James wants his Lakers and the Dodgers to be able to join in on the victory celebrations.

That’s so unlike LeBron to want to steal the spotlight from someone.

The Georgia Bulldogs have been well-represented by teams to make the Super Bowl throughout the 21st century. For each of the past 21 NFL seasons, a former Georgia football player has found his way to being a member of a team that has made it to the Super Bowl.

The Rams having some of the most notable names in the game, including quarterback Matthew Stafford, running back Sony Michel, and linebacker Leonard Floyd.
