    After lots and lots of odd research, I find this is one of the most relevant pieces of information from the same year as the baseball strike about an Abbott and Costello bit originally about baseball but now about bands The Band, The Who, and Yes, performed with impersonations by Tony Rosato and Eugene Levy.

    I know, how weird is this video, right? It's just that Rosato-Levy combined does seem like Rosa Tse-Levy...or close to it. Given that Bud and Gene draw our attention to Abbott and Costello, its fair to consider even this remarkably obscure segment.

    Continuing the perspective on the doormen.

    BUD and GENE
    BUD ABBOTT and LOU COSTELLO = Who's on First?
    TONY ROSATO and EUGENE LEVY = Midnight Express Special parody of Who's on First?
    ROSATO-LEVY
    ROSA TSE-LEVY = artist on 3rd floor
    ROSA SELAVY = MARCEL DUCHAMP = artist responsible for crafting the R.Mutt "Fountain" urinal on 13th floor.

    This shouldn't go anywhere, but also sports related is Bud Selig and Gene Upshaw, I know I'm stretching it, lol.

    In the Maltese Falcon (1941), Detective Sam Spade carries the Golden Falcon wrapped in newspaper to the Bus Terminal and hands it over the the clerk for safe keeping. He receives a ticket stub in return and then puts it in an envelope which he addresses to a post office box. The bottom line reads only CITY. I thought that was kinda strange. Anyways, not that this is important now that the hunt is over, I thought it was a cool insight.

    something I came across while doing the research...August Ceasar Dodge, son of Henry Dodge...check out the Washington Street connection. Augustus and Dodge with a ceasar cipher connection It's crazy how there are so many coincidences in life yet there are none. I think I've learned more from researching treasure hunts than I did even in college. I win every treasure hunt I do because I gain more knowledge each time, that's why they are so addicting!! Snowy

    I'm pretty sure I believe I know exactly where it is, with about 11 confirmations that I'm right.

    It's no where that anyone to my knowledge has suggested before.unfortunately the place is so remote and I don't drive so it will be next to impossible for me to get there. I think
    People are over implicating this last part way too much.

    I wish I could just email my answer to the author.On that note it seems like the author rarely updates his
    Blog.i wonder if he's lost interest
