December 1 Day 633: Suspicions Confirmed

I was curious after my last post, so I asked. None of my students knew the 80s sitcom Cheers.

One politely inquired “What was it about?”

Another responded, “I think it was like Friends but in a bar.”

Instead, we found common TV viewing experiences watching Blues Clues. The consensus was that Steve was the best host. We were all moved by his recent post celebrating the 25th anniversary of the show.

It was nice to find some common ground. As the quarter is winding down and stressors rise, I think students especially appreciated Steve’s acknowledgement that college was really challenging.

And Steve, we never forgot you either.
