“Whenever there’s trouble … we’re there on the double … we’re the Bloodhound Gang.
If you’ve got the crime … we’ve got the time … we’re the Bloodhound Gang!”
Back in 1982 … The Bloodhound Gang was a mini-series that aired during the last 5 minutes of a PBS program called “3-2-1 Contact”.
It was about three clever teenagers who solved crimes, with the help of their knowledge of science.
My sister Manda and I would virtually kill ourselves racing home from grade school to catch the end of the show.
Each episode ended with a cliff-hanger, until the crime was miraculously solved!
Nothing was more frustrating than when a 3-2-1 Contact episode ran too long (usually on Fridays) and the announcer would say “The Bloodhound Gang will not be presented today”! We were devastated that we’d have to wait an entire weekend to find out how the crime would be solved.
What does this have to do with my current role?
Well … nothing really.
