Have Researchers Pinpointed The ‘Good’ Day of Legend?

Q101 is awaiting word as to whether there was a triple-double achieved while “messing around”, if mama indeed cooked breakfast with “no-hog”, and if the “jammy” did in fact go “deep, so deep, so deep it put her ass to sleep,” but even in lieu of those facts emerging, we feel confident that an urban legend as elusive to prove or disprove as “Resurrection Mary” and “Bachelor’s Grove Woods” has been solved.

Beepers were commercially sold
Lakers beat the SuperSonics

But the Spirit of Akron is based on the East Coast (in Florida), not near Los Angeles; Goodyear also has a blimp based in Carson, California. (As it happens, 1992 is the year that the good ship Columbia gave way to the Eagle; the Spirit of America now patrols the coast for the tire company.)
