Word of the Week 011421

Elvis goes deep

Greetings Word of the Week fans and welcome to the Jan. 14 edition of Clarion County's favorite word game.

It was on this date in 1973, Elvis Presley's concert Aloha from Hawaii is broadcast live via satellite, and sets the record as the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history.

The concert took place at the Honolulu International Center, and it was broadcast live to audiences in Asia and Oceania.

The show was then presented with delay in Europe.

In the United States, to avoid a programming conflict with Super Bowl VII, NBC opted to air a ninety-minute television special on April 4.

The show earned good ratings in the countries targeted by the live broadcast. The television special presented in the United States became NBC's highest rated program of the year, and it garnered a favorable reception from the critics.

In a scene that was cut from the live broadcast, "Big ‘E'" knelt down to a woman in the front row and said, "trouvaille."

What did the King of Rock and Roll mean when he said "trouvaille:"

A: Dinner. "Hey pretty mama, how about joining me for trouvaille after the show?" said Elvis.

B: A lucky find. "Hey, pretty mama, you're a trouvaille," said Elvis. "Meet me in my dressing room."

C: A tailor. "You like this suit?" asked Elvis. "I'll give you the name of my trouvaille."

D: The end. "And now, the trouvaille is near," crooned Elvis.

Oh, and about Super Bowl VII The Miami Dolphins topped Washington's super season that day.

Miami defeated the Redskins, 14-7, to win Super Bowl VII and complete the only undefeated season in the history of the National Football League.

Not many people are friends with their favorite football star, but of course Elvis was.

Elvis was friends with Cleveland Browns star Jim Brown. Elvis' favorite teams included the Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The correct answer to the Word of the Week challenge is "B."
