Almost every evening some question arises that neither Studly Doright nor I can answer. We’ll bicker back and forth, offering our own answers, but our good friend Google is always called on in the end to settle the matter.
Some nights the question in question revolves around the name of an actor and/or what other roles we’ve seen them in. Studly is much better at this than I am, but we always ask Google in the end.
On Sunday evening as we watched the Travelers Championship golf tournament a commercial played and I turned to Studly. “I believe that’s Bob Dylan singing in this Traveler’s insurance commercial.”
Now Studly pays little to no attention to music. He knows all the words to one song—“Happy Birthday”—but that didn’t keep him from weighing in.
He frowned. “No it’s not Dylan. The voice isn’t gravelly enough.”
We argued for a good ten minutes before I held up my phone. “We’ll see. I’m asking Google.”
Sure enough I was right. Damn, but it feels good to say that. I only wish it happened more often.
