2. SPECTRUM
3. mark spitz (mark something)
4. ST. AUGUSTINE
5. CHICAGO
6. "twister"
7. STANLEY KOWALSKI
8. manslaughter
CRAP !!
the cork should not pop. as the saying goes, "the ear's gain is the palate's loss". popping the cork destroys carbonation.
when properly opened, the cork should come out with a quiet sigh.
