And also that the most fumbles in a game is 7.

Wouldn't you have taken the guy out after, say, the 4th one?

Well, you don't just yank hall-of-fame QB's. I'd be willing to bet that it was a miserable day and they were almost all center/QB exchange miscues.

According to this, I'd guess that you're right. Of the 9 total fumble that the Chiefs had that day, they only lost 3. The Chargers also had a pair of fumbles of their own and didn't score at all in the second half. Seems like it was a pretty sloppy game altogether.

  • Basically 9/11 even still today. Not to stir the pot, but I don't see how an airplane could destroy a building constructed in the modern age. All the controversy and the irrational physics and poor explanations, everything that's happened in part to the events, it's mind blowing.

With all the columns that the plane destroyed, as well as the consistant fires at the weakest parts of the building burning and weakening the steel to the point where it bowed and caused the sides to cave in, thus leaving any support of the top floors obsolete, it's very easy to understand how it collapsed. Not saying you're a 9/11 conspiracy dope, but you may want to check out Mark Robert's website (wtc7lies.googlepages.com) which is probably the best and most comprehensive guide to 9/11 facts and myths on the net.

It's also the fact that the initial impact and explosions blasted off a lot of the fire-resistant material surrounding the columns which further worsened the weakening of the supports.

Considering how big boxing was in the 80s and 90s, it's hard to believe that Mayweather vs Pacquiao (spelling) may be the last big marquee matchup boxing has to offer. We better get used to associating the term "fight night" with MMA.

It's hard to believe that the Dolphins won back-to-back super bowls in 1972-73 considering how terrible they are now.

I will have you know from 1970-2003 the Dolphins had exactly two sub .500 seasons.

That's AMAZING. Definitely going to bring that up when I get to that era in my class.

Add this link, from that link, because this is just awesome.

That dude died just two months after appearing on I've Got a Secret, a couple of days shy of the 91st anniversary of the assassination. Also, Bill Cullen is awesome (the panelist in the glasses and game show legend).

  • That Jerry Sandusky is still alive/not in prison.

  • Pretty much everything about outer space, space science and exploration. The ultimate mystery of our world, the astro-frontier.

Considering that the towers were completed in 1972 and 1973 without standards that are in place today, I can see how it fell. Think about the fuel mixture for airplanes, it is basically kerosene, which is a heavier fraction in the distillation process than gasoline. The heavier hydrocarbons found in Jet Fuel burns hotter than typical gas which basically melted the steel in the buildings to the point where the structure could not take all the weight.

This year will be 10 years since the Salt Lake Winter Olympics. I remember them like they were yesterday. Crazy...

Also, if Orrin Hatch wins re-election to his senate seat this year, by the end of his new term, he will have been a U.S. Senator for 42 years. Holy shiz.

On a personal note, May 27th will have been two years since I graduated high school. That just doesn't seem right.

The band "Manchester Orchestra" isn't from Manchester, England, they're from Manchester, Georgia. They aren't even an orchestra, they are a rock band.

They're actually from Alpharetta, Georgia, and named after the city in England.

That the 2010 San Francisco Giants won the World Series. Every time I look at the banner on my wall that says they were world champs I just shake my head and chuckle. I never thought I'd see it and the perfect storm that was that season is still hard to grasp.

Coincidentally, it's still hard for me to believe the Rangers have been the back to back World Series ^_^

It's hard to believe that it only took them 12 questions to figure it out.

That Edwin Moses won 122 consecutive 400m hurdle races over the space of a decade between 1977 & 87.

That Jahangir Khan won 555 consecutive squash matches between 1981 & 86.

Those streaks are just mind-blowing to me to contemplate.

Also that it took until midway through my senior year of high school for there to be an NFL game I had been alive for not started by Brett Favre, similarly that when I graduated from high school only two people had started at quarterback for the Green Bay Packers in my lifetime.

In a similar vein that Cal Ripken's records include not only 2632 consecutive games, but 8243 consecutive innings.

I work in Alpharetta and as far as I know, it's the only place with that name in the country. FWIW, supposedly it means "first town" in some language or another.

Calling possible shenanigans there. "Alpha" means "first"... but the Greek word for "city/town" is "polis."

That being said, Alphapolis is an awesome name for a town.

...that only 11 years passed between Woodstock and Ronald Reagan's inauguration. I don't know about anyone else, but growing up in the 80s, the social climate and values that shaped the late 60s seemed like such ancient history.
