Stuart died???? I have not watched All My Children in years and am afraid that I don't know many people on there anymore. But STUART DIES??? That is just not right and I would have bawled like a baby had I seen it. Can't believe it....he dies

Desmond Jones said...

Lions/Tigers. . . are we talkin' Detroit pro sports teams here? 'Cuz if we are, it's no contest. . . Tigers. 'Cuz everybody knows the Lions suck. . .

And Orange/Blue. . . why did I know, without a doubt that that's what you'd say?

Sailor - This was a fun meme, long though.

KK - Yes, Stuart died. Just about everyone in town was mad at Adam and were lurking about the mansion on a dark and stormy night. A shot rang out, killed Stuart instead of the intended target Adam, and now the question is who did the shooting. So many suspects, so many stories, you can imagine. I bawled like a baby, particularly when Adam went to the morgue and even more when Scott did.

Des - I thought about the sports team thing only I thought of Mizzou Tigers, LSU Tigers, Memphis Tigers. I couldn't think of a college that's the Lions, but I'm pretty sure putting that statement out here will garner replies pointing out a plethora of them.
