Yes!  A couple of months ago, I posted how I was trying to enlighten the
bass player in my band by lending him my copy of Quadrophenia.  Sadly at
the time, he thought is was "okay".  But now...  I've been quietly
sneaking in some Who from time to time when we're around listening to
music, and now he asks me, "Hey, do you have any Who?"  He's becoming a
big Who fan - "Dude, how did The Who slip passed me?"  Because you
weren't listening!  Being a bass player, I figured he could get into The
Ox.  Surprise - he used to think the bass player from Sublime was the
shit, but now Mr. Entwistle is his hero!

I thought I was the only one who caught that!  I asked the guys I worked
with if they'd saw/heard that and no one did.  "Aw-ree".  Aw-some.  I
just read an article about how the sideline-babes were sports savvy and
not there just to look good.  Looks like the question writers should be
careful about such big words.
