  • 1995 was eleven years ago as of 2006. Yet another of Jick's "eleven coincidences".


  • The part in the description containing "Ridin' Rodeo, 1995" is a reference to the 1995 Vince Gill song, "Ridin' The Rodeo".
  • Blue ribbon is a term used to describe something of high quality. Blue ribbons have also been awarded as prizes, such as competitions at fairs or rodeos.
  • The reference to "keeping an eye on your spleen" is a reference to the novelty folk song "The Scotsman," in which a Scotsman wakes up from a drunken stupor to find a blue ribbon tied around his penis. The song ends with the Scotsman saying, "Lad, I don't know where you been/But I see you won first prize.".
  • Ahwatukee, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona, has been recognized by Money Magazine as one of America's "Best Places to Live".
