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

Can this non-sports fanatic make the grand announcement today? The New England Patriots rolled down the old NFL drain last night against a team from somewhere in Colorado.  Not that I really care all that much but it really succeeded in turning my better-half into an insane basket case.  We have a agreement on nights when these games are scheduled.  She moves to the upstairs family room to yell, scream, and cheer on whatever teams she thinks she supports.  I remain downstairs watching whatever I please on Netflix well out of reach of the denigrating influences of professional sports.

‘Ugly Sports Fans?’

I’m not entirely sure where along the way I lost all interest in almost every kind of sporting event.  I played many different sports as I grew up and was pretty damn successful in all of them. I had a lot of natural ability and I knew if I became good enough I might just get laid occasionally. Why women and girls are drawn to sports figures is beyond me but it’s a fact of life.

‘Oversized Sports Fan?’

The only sporting events that even remotely interest me these days is the Little League World Series and it’s accompanying playoffs.  It’s much more honest and upstanding than what professional sports has turned into.  Money is power and absolute power corrupts absolutely . . .  so welcome to professional sports. Don’t forget the performance enhancers, steroids, the  lying, the dishonesty, and the too many to count criminal indictments.

‘Oversexed Sports Fan?’

I even lost interest in the Olympics decades ago.  Patriotism be damned. The political overtones became a constant turn off and I now make a point of religiously avoiding any and all events on any network related to the Olympics. The point of the Olympics originally was to promote a non-violent means for countries to compete and to develops a better understanding of each other.  Just think about it for a minute and you’ll realize just how much of a failure that has been. Take a look back to Munich and ask the Israelis what they think about it.

‘Rainbow Coalition Sports Fans?’

Over the last few years I’ve even been forced to give up my small addiction to talk radio.  The airways are now dominated by the two things which make my blood curdle, sports and politics.  Listening to sports experts 24/7 is akin to having your teeth drilled near the nerve with no Novocain. Even worse than sports are the endless shows of talking heads who claim some sort of expertise and understanding about all things politic.  Of course their political views directly coincide with their networks agenda and the possibilities of career advancement if they agree to prostitute themselves and tow the company line.

Welcome to life in the good old U. S. of A. here in 2016.
