    I'm sittin' here watching SNL and I've seen a commercial for a new show on Thursdays starring Amy Puller (sp?) called Parks and Recreation. Apparently she's supposed to work for Indiana Parks & Recreation. I'm still not sure if its just a gag commercial as part of SNL or the real thing. Looks real. If so, should be interesting to see how they portray Hoosiers.

    Yeah, its still on...nothing like the good ol' days though! I'll watch it now if I'm up, but I never stay up just to watch it.

    It said Thursdays but didn't give a time or date...that's kinda why I was wondering if it was a gag commercial from SNL.

    It's real. I've seen the previews for it, supposed to be a new sitcom.

    Thats too bad i have seen some funny stuff over the years in the great outdoors. Mostly human goof ups and in indiana. The best was the time I set in my boat waiting at a boat ramp with numerous trucks waiting to get their boat in. This was a riot! I watched two guys back a boat down a ramp and try to push the boat off the trailer with the trailer tires not in the water. I watched this for 30 minutes untill they got it right. Wish I would have had my video camera with me.

    I watched a guy at monroe launch his boat, tie it up and then park the trailer, come back and the boat was under water cause he had for gotten the plug.. It was a bass boat.. hehehehe.

    I also saw another guy down at Dale Hollow Lake pull his boat up on the trailer, lock it in and then start up the ramp but forgot to pull the motor up and draged it about 75 ft... now that was funny...

    I remember hearing about a couple of guys who went fishing. They were using a small fish basket with a damaged lid & their fish swam away.:smile2:

    Hey guys my wife helped me find it on nbc.com. Its is called parks and recreation and comes on this Thursday evening. Either at 8:30 or 9:30. There is some SNL people in it. It should be funny. I bet they portray hoosiers as dumb and drunk rednecks. I guess we will see Thursday.:smile2:

    When I was in college I worked several summers for the PA Fish & Boat Commission. One evening before electrofishing I forgot to tie the boat off. I thought my bosses had done it...they didn't. The rule was the last one to touch it swims for it. I just started stripping down when guy came motoring back to the ramp & grabbed the boat for me. The boss was not happy with me! He knew he would get the "stupid state workers" looks & comments because of his stupid college kid summer help. He would always say "Matt, you know what the say about summer help? Summer & summern't. (Some are & some aren't)"
