Friday Weisblog: James Brown’s “green” and the trivia answer

james-brown1It appears that tomorrow at this time, the two-year battle over the estate of James Brown (a/k/a “The Godfather of Soul”) could finally be coming to an end. I say it’s about time. Please Please Please get this over with already!

His adult children could soon be taking the Night Train straight to the bank, realizing that Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag – and it’s full of money. It’s enough to make anyone say, “I Feel Good.”

The unnecessary in-fighting among Brown’s family members is what happens when you are Living in America. Some would say that, for the kids who sat on the couch waiting for their fortune to roll in, it’s time to Get Up Offa That Thing.

How the kids will spend dad’s money is anyone’s guess. It boggles the mind and makes one break out into a Cold Sweat.james-brown-21

All kidding aside, how often have we seen money come between family members? I’ve seen it in my own world, and it’s really an unfortunate thing when it happens. In life, you only get one chance with your family, and you shouldn’t blow it.

Now, for the answer to yesterday’s trivia question: What is Shaggy from the Scooby Doo show’s real name? The answer is Norville Rogers. Yep, really. Norville Rogers.

Finally, my Super Bowl prediction: Pittsburgh Steelers 31, Arizona Cardinals 20. Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Nicely done with the song titles in there. Do you actually have that many Brown CD’s? 🙂 I just don’t know what to think of the Super Bowl. I have picked Arizona to lose every playoff game so far and they just continue to roll. I just don’t think the Steelers can stop the jump ball throw to Fitz, but I also think the Steelers are going to be to powerful for the Cardinals defense. Yea Steelers win by at least 17.

  2. I actually don’t have any James Brown CDs. I just thought of a couple that would be funny in an article and ran with the idea – using a Web browser to find other Brown songs that would fit with the theme.
