Non-Sports Post of the Day

I've forgotten plenty of important dates over the years, but I didn't want to miss an opportunity to give a shout out to George Wendt on his 60th birthday. Wendt played one of my top-10 all-time favorite television characters, Norm Peterson, on "Cheers."

As a birthday gift, here are a few of my favorite Norm quotes:

Coach: Can I draw you a beer, Norm
Norm: No, I know what they look like. Just pour me one.

Coach: How's a beer sound, Norm?
Norm: I dunno. I usually finish them before they get a word in.

Coach: What would you say to a beer, Normie?
Norm: Daddy wuvs you.

Sam: What will you have, Norm?
Norm: Well, I'm in a gambling mood, Sammy. I'll take a glass of whatever comes out of that tap.
Sam: Oh, looks like beer, Norm.
Norm: Call me Mister Lucky.

Woody: "What's the story, Mr. Peterson?"
Norm: "The Bobbsey twins go to the brewery. Let's cut to the happy ending."

Woody: Hey, Mr. Peterson, there's a cold one waiting for you.
Norm: I know, and if she calls, I'm not here.

Sam: Whatcha up to Norm?
Norm: My ideal weight if I were 11 feet tall.

Woody: "How's it going Mr. Peterson?"
Norm: "It's a dog eat dog world, Woody, and I'm wearing Milk-Bone underwear!"

Sam: "What's the story, Norm?"
Norm: "Boy meets beer. Boy drinks beer. Boy meets another beer."

And for those of you who hate reading, here's a video version:

Ha! I remember that "gambling mood" line from first-run. It had me laughing for days.

A top five series of all-time, no doubt.
