to the hippest show on the Internet, "Live with JoeBiz and Gwenny G!"
Gwenny G: And I'm Gwenny G. Today's guests made their television debut over 10 years ago, playing Michelle Tanner on the popular TV series "Full House."
JoeBiz: Since then, they've gone on to star in and produce their own movies, they have their own line of books, and just released a Christmas album. They are practically household names.
Gwenny G: That's right, joining us on the show today are those identical twin teen sensations, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen!
JoeBiz: Not only are Mary-Kate and Ashley here to tell you about their new Wonderful World of Disney movie "Switching Goals," but they've also brought along a few prizes to give away!
Gwenny G: A few?! We've got 30 books, JoeBiz. That's a little more than a few.
JoeBiz: Hey, it's just an expression. But you're right, Gwenny G. That's a lot! I'm glad we're not the ones in charge of selecting the winners, I'd want everyone to win!
Gwenny G: Well, before we start giving away any books, let's take a look at today's fun fact first. Now, today is Wednesday, December 8. Can you believe there are only 25 more days left until the turn of the millennium?
JoeBiz: Wow, this year has just flown by! But the good news is that I think I've found my outfit for Producer Mary's millennium party. It's this incredible shade of blue, with sequins and sparkles all over it.
Gwenny G: Well, at least it will match your hair.
JoeBiz: Wait till you see it! I'm telling you, it's the perfect get-up. Have you gotten yours yet?
Gwenny G: I'm going to be wearing an elegant black dress with a tiara.
JoeBiz: A tiara? What're you gonna be, Princess 2000?
Gwenny G: The tiara might be a bit much, huh? But millennium plans aside, let's go over today's fun facts. You know, there were some pretty big milestones in sports history that took place today.
JoeBiz: Here we go with sports again.
Gwenny G: On this day in 1961, Wilt Chamberlain scored 78 points in a game, and then in 1987, Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ron Hextall became the first goalie to score a goal.
JoeBiz: Huh? I don't get it. Aren't goalies supposed to score goals?
Gwenny G: Honestly, JoeBiz, if you knew as much about sports as you do about "I Love Lucy" --
JoeBiz: That is so funny that you bring that up, because my fun fact about today happens to be about "I Love Lucy."
Gwenny G: Another "I Love Lucy" fun fact? I gotta hear this.
JoeBiz: On this day back in 1952, all of America found out that Lucy was pregnant with Little Ricky.
Gwenny G: I remember that episode! It really was a big moment in television history.
JoeBiz: It was the first time we ever saw a pregnancy on TV.
Gwenny G: While we're on the subject of celebrations, let's wish a happy birthday to singer Sammy Davis, Jr., actress Kim Basinger, NFL quarterback Jeff George, and WNBA guard Teresa Weatherspoon.
JoeBiz: Also blowing out candles today are comedian Flip Wilson, actors David Carradine and Nick Nolte, and actress Teri Hatcher.
Gwenny G: Speaking of celebrities, I have a celebrity sighting to tell you about, JoeBiz.
JoeBiz: Who? Who? Where? I'm dying to know, Gwenny G!
Gwenny G: Well, I saw "Titanic" hunk Leonardo DiCaprio at a recent Laker game.
JoeBiz: Well, how did he look?
Gwenny G: Oh, he looked fine, what I could see of him, that is. But his friend --
JoeBiz: What? What about his friend?
Gwenny G: Let's just say that besides you, I never thought I would see another person with blue hair.
JoeBiz: Oh, blue hair is the "in" thing now, Gwenny G. I've told you that before. I'm blue in the face from telling you this!
Gwenny G: OK, now that is the worse pun you've had all year. Besides, we've got important guests waiting! So, why don't you go ahead and introduce them, JoeBiz?
JoeBiz: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome to the stage: Mary-Kate and
Gwenny G: Ashley
