The airing of the first episode of "That 70's Show" is now closer to the time period it was set in than it is to present day.


I had to look that one up because I couldn't believe. While it's close to being true, it's can be classified as FAKE NEWS. First episode was 1998 and it was set in 1976. Still close enough to feel old.

But this fall will mark 20 years since the show started. So if they were to make a period show like that today it would be set in 1996 and called That 90's Show.

The Furman QB this weekend starting against Clemson, could possibly be a student at Clemson

https://www.si.com/college-football/201 ... son-week-1

Roberts, a 6'4", 209-pound fifth-year senior from Cumming, Ga., is one of two QBs vying for the starting job at Furman, Clemson’s opponent on Saturday. He spent his first three years earning a pre-engineering bachelor’s at the small liberal arts school about 32 miles from Clemson. Because Furman doesn’t offer an engineering major, students who wish to study the subject there spend their final two years at either Clemson, Georgia Tech or NC State. Every weekday, Roberts drives 40 minutes to Clemson for class. Then he makes the drive in reverse to get to practice at Furman.

Let's see if this makes it to the end of the night...

John Gant is the only player in MLB history to hit two home runs and never reach base safely by any other way.

Ted Williams' career* slash line was .344/.482/.634.

That is higher than any *individual season* high in any category from Mike Trout (.326/.467/.629), Joey Votto (.324/.474/.600), or Giancarlo Stanton (.288/.395/.631).



* Despite missing his age 24-26 seasons. For reference he slashed .356/.499/.648 at age 23, and .342/.497/.667 at age 27 when he returned.

How about the fact that he had more home runs than strikeouts 4 times?

I had missed this one. That's awesome.

I'm getting real tired of watching these pitchers walk around the mound, play with their hat, wiggle their butt, stare at home, stare at first, then call for a mound visit. It's way out of control. The umpires need to start calling balls after 10 seconds. Or maybe 6 or 7. F0ck this.
