Meme Monday - Two Truths and A Lie

This week, I thought I'd resurrect an old meme that was going around a few years ago.  It's called "Two Truths and A Lie", and as you can probably guess, the object is for me to post two truths and one lie.  Then, you guys comment and see if you can spot the lie.  So here we go:
  1. The musical Cats used to claim it would run "now and forever at the Winter Garden Theatre", but it actually had it's final Broadway performance in September of 2000.  I was there.
  2. Figure skater Sergei Grinkov died of a heart attack in November of 1995.  That spring, his friends gathered for a tribute show called "Celebration of a Life".  It was the first time since his death that his widow, Ekaterina Gordeeva, performed.  I was there.
  3. Susan Lucci was nominated for 19 Daytime Emmys, but year after year she would lose to other actresses.  In May of 1999, she finally won.  I was there.
Okay, so tell me, which one is the lie? I'll post the answer next week.


  1. Curious, you actually attended the Daytime Emmy Awards? That's dedication.

    I'm skeptical of #2. If it were 2005 I feel like sportscenter would have been all over that.

  2. Chris, it sounds like all of these events actually happened. The question is, was Karen there when it happened?

    I vote #3. You live close enough to NYC for #1 to be true. Not sure if you're a big ice skating fan, but it wouldn't be unusual.

    But for #3, you'd need someone to get you into the Emmys, and you've never mentioned knowing anyone in Hollywood. So I'd say #3 is the lie.

  3. I totally agree with Allison. #3 doesn't sound right, I mean it is for Susan Lucci but not you being there.

    So as far as the other two, Rock on! That's awesome that you were there.


Thanks for your comment!
