08/19/2022 “TRUE FACTS”   Leave a comment

Any day is a good day to be told the truth. How’s that for words to live by? Some of these topics will definitely pique your interest. Sometimes the weirder the facts the truer the statements. See what you think.

Let’s try some sports:

  • The infamous Bill Buckner of Red Sox fame had more career hits and Ted Williams.
  • During World War II, so many NFL players were fighting in the war that the rival Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers temporarily teamed up to form the “Steagles”
  • Walter Payton once threw a touchdown pass, caught a touchdown pass, and ran for a touchdown in the same game.
  • Legend has it that Hall of Fame baseball player Wade Boggs once drank 107 beers in one day while traveling with the team.
  • The only team to score 3 touchdowns in under 1 min. in the NFL is the New England Patriots. And they’ve done it twice.

Now for little sci-fi:

  • It takes 200 million years for the sun to make one orbit around the galactic center.
  • In order for the earth to become a black hole, its entire mass would have to be compressed into a space less than an inch in diameter.
  • The sun makes up over 99% of the solar system’s entire mass.
  • Venus spends backwards and no one knows why!
  • Every planet in the solar system could fit in the space between Earth and the moon. Even if you count Pluto.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND
