Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!
My mom has won tickets to concerts before from the radio, but I never have. That is beyond awesome though! I cannot wait for The Hobbit.
YUP! from about 5 or 6 different stations over the years - - -never one of those "BE THE 173RD CALLER" things, but quite a number of trivia questions answered to win free lunch at some really nice restaurants, several albums / CD's, concert tickets (Robert Plant, Phil Collins, Reba McIntyre, Cheap Trick & others) plus some other assorted goody packages
I also came up with the suggestion about 10 years back when the radio traffic guys were trying to come up with a name for a new landmark in Atlanta - - - they alreay had names like Spaghetti Junction (I-85 & I-285 interchange), Perimiter Loop (I-285), Alpharetta Autobahn (GA 400) and the inevitible "ubiquitous ladder in the roadway" - - -
. . . so when the new bridge was built near downtown for 17th Street overpass of the I-75/85 Connector they needing something funny to call it . . .
BONUS POINTS > > > can anyone figure out why this is still referred to by traffic announcers as the "BAY Bridge" when it is not located anywhere near or leading to a body of water?
Spaghetti Junction! I love that name.
Maybe it's named after someone named Bay? Like Michael Bay.
Is it an acronym?
. . . as for Spaghetti Junction, the term was originally used to refer to the Gravelly Hill Interchange on the M6 motorway in Birmingham, United Kingdom
. . . and I just realized how dated that pic of SJ-Atlanta was . . . here it is today . . . next week they add flight patterns for the hovercraft and helicopters:
