So I see you're a Pee Wee fan, twotap. Asking his real name would be wayyyy to easy for you.

By the way, anyone "Googling the answers" to these questions will be immediately disqualified from getting to sit atop the Citizens Bank ball!

1. Pee Wee Herman's real name (not for trivia buff's like twotap who obviously know the answer).

2. Nicholson's line "You can't handle the truth" is from what movie?

3. Tom Cruise's line preceding Nicholson's "You can't handle the truth" line.

I said no fair Googling or watching the movie to find out!

4. Kevin Pollack's character's name in that movie?

5. The last name of the family in "A Christmas Story"?

Wow, I'm surprised! Shocked There's hasn't been any replies to this!

People of Flint, are you so engulfed with politics around Flint Talk that these questions are not interesting to you? Ae you not movie or TV buffs? These questions too easy? Too hard? Just not interesting? Come on!

The movie is "A Few good Men." I'll leave the rest up to you.

If you can give us Flint oriented trivia, then we can bite. I'll give you one. What was the last scripted, non-documentary film before Semi-Pro to film scenes in Flint?

How about "What long running Fox series has mentioned Flint 3 times in their 18 year run?

What short lived ABC series starring Helen Hunt centered around an Irish American family growing up in Flint in the 1970's?

Question #1: The Simpsons
Question #2: First, a correction. The show was on CBS. It was The Fitzpatricks. Two factual errors in the very first show. Flint never had a steel mill and Flint's terrain is as flat as a pancake. There are no mountains in Flint as was depicted in the soap box derby scene.

Was there one? Okay, I'll try it, but first - Flint-oriented movie trivia? That thread should be about a page long! I'm not sure how much trivia or variation is there, but if I agree that's probably a better route in thnis venue.

The last scripted, non-documentary film before Semi-Pro to film scenes in Flint? My sources tell me Chameleon Street in 1990, although I've never heard of that. Otherwise, you stumped me on that one.

Speaking of semi-pro sports, what local semi-pro football team began in 2003 at Flint's Atwood Stadium as a member of the OVFL? They shared the stadium with their league rival the Flint Fury.

OVFL? Is that the O Varian Football League?

You're correct, Mark!

How many of you remember the Flint Arrows?

That minor league baseball team predates me. They played at Atwood Stadium. Since the 1960s renovations, only football and soccer can be played at Atwood.

I thought the Flint Arrows played at the stadium that was behind the old IMA auditorium.
AND, at Halloween time the show "The Fitzpatricks" did an episode about Devil's Night"in Flint. No one, I know, had ever heard of Devil's Night"in Flint. Then the next year, after the show had aired, houses started burning on Devil's night.

Athletic Park? That's where all the IMA factory leagues played. The Arrows played at Atwood. One of my cousins had a crush on their shortstop.

Good guess, FC, but wrong. While OVFL could stand for O Varian Football League, On Valium Football League, or Over Valerie (an old girlfriend, but as you can see - she's ancient history) Football League, it really stands for the Ohio Valley Football League. They shared Atwood with the Fury.

The local semi-pro football team that began in 2003 at Flint's Atwood Stadium as a member of the OVFL was The Genesee County Patriots.

For Dave, Flinn, and shintz62, yes, I remember the Flint Arrows. They were a professional baseball team here from 1948-1951. They were a part of the Central League and played their home games at Atwood Stadium. They won the Central League Championship in 1948, and 1950.

For Flinn, you're right. The Fitzpatricks were on CBS, not ABC, during the 1978-1979 season. It was a drama about an Irish Catholic working class family living in Flint. Of course, it's the Flint, Michigan with mountains!

Okay, one more for all Flint trivialists: Flint is referenced in a 1994 episode of the The Simpsons. Bart's class visits a factory. When asked if they will get to see a finished product, the tour guide replies, "Well, we don't assemble them here - that's done in Flint, Michigan." What kind of product does that factory manufacture?
