  1. Rogers Hornsby's career batting average of .358 is second only to Ty Cobb's (.367). During the decade of the 1920s, Hornsby hit .317 once, which was the only time he hit lower than .361. Look at this decade of hitting: 1920 - .370 1921 - .397 1922 - .401 1923 - .384 1924 - .424 --> The highest single-season batting average in post-1900 MLB history 1925 - .403 --> The 4th RBI Crown he won in the 1920s 1926 - .317 1927 - .361 1928 - .387 1929 - .380 --> The 7th time he hit over 40 home runs in the 1920s, leading the NL 4 times, and the 9th time he led the league in .OPS percentage
  2. Forgive my exuberance, but I went to Clemson for both undergraduate and graduate school, and after being there during the glorious 1981-1982 National Championship season, it has been 34 years of non-stop heartache. They've been good, and at times excellent, but they've never come close to repeating that one, unforgettable accomplishment. --- "Clemson Tigers Banned from Social Media during Season" on si.com Supposedly, "to keep players' focus on football as opposed to the outside world." I read it more as, "to keep any stars from getting trashed at 2 AM and tweeting something stupid." Can you imagine completely giving up social media for four months in this day and age when you're in college? This is the 21st-century version of saltpeter.
  3. I just watched this episode of the Dick van Dyke show, probably for the first time in thirty years. In it, Rob Petrie mentions Mathew Brady, and I'm saying to myself, 'Who in the heck is Mathew Brady?!' Well, Mathew Brady is perhaps the photographer whose work you've seen more than any other in your entire life! Every time you pull out a penny, or a five-dollar bill, you're looking at a Mathew Brady. Who knew?
  4. There are a couple things I didn't know about Indiana State's Men's basketball program: * They've played in the NCAA since 1896, making them the oldest program in the nation along with Bucknell, Minnesota, and Washington (who knew?!) * The legendary 1978-1979 team almost wasn't quite so legendary: Against New Mexico State (and remember, there was no 3-point shot then), they were behind 83-81 with 3 seconds remaining, and New Mexico State was at the free-throw line! The shooter missed, Brad Miley got the rebound, and passed to Bob Heaton, who heaved a desperation, 50-foot bank-shot in at the buzzer. Indiana State won the game in overtime.
  5. I preferred it on first listening, but after listening to Fuller's version (by itself - you can't listen to them side-by-side) a couple times, he's starting to win me over. Just the thought of him playing in some rinky-dink "hall," with 30 people standing around him in a circle, clapping the beat while he's puffing out notes on his kazoo (probably with a cigarette hanging out the corner of his mouth) - that's just a great visual.
