Sometimes You Wanna Go . . .

Can you finish the line?  If so, you were either watching NBC in the 80's or you're a fan of late-night reruns.  
...where everybody knows your name.And they're always glad you came.You wanna go where people know, people are all the same.You wanna go where everybody knows your name.
Cheers was one of our favorite shows and our conversation is still full of Cheers references, although the show ended twenty years ago.  George Wendt - better known as Norm Peterson - wrote a book aptly titled "Drinking With George" which Dave read as soon as it came out in 2010.

Recently, Dave and Amanda attended the Omaha Beer Fest where Mr. Wendt was signing his book.  Of course, Dave took along his copy to have it autographed and snapped a couple pictures.

Wonder if he ever gets tired of people yelling, "Noooorm!!" 


  1. Hahaha! I started singing the song the minute I saw the title of your post. Love Cheers! How fun to get to see "Norm"!

  2. That is so cool. I was watching reruns of Fraiser last night with my dad and he said he really enjoyed Cheers. Then he went into his bedroom closet and pulled out his Cheers t-shirt that my husband had picked up for him in Boston years ago!!!

  3. Well crud my app on my ipad for your blog doesn't always update and so I missed your last two posts! Clay loved Cheers! So kewl to get to meet Norm!!

  4. Cool post! He probably does get tired of people yelling "Norm", but it made him a ton of cash, so I bet that takes the sting out of it (mostly).

  5. My real name is Diane Chambers - honest! When Cheers was on TV, I got teased and questioned every time I wrote a check. The era in which the show aired was before folks just swiped a credit or debit card in the grocery store so my mini-harassment was several times a week. It was a popular show.
