How is everyone holding on? I know it’s tough without sports, but, there are things to watch, listen to or read in order to help scratch that itch.
Yesterday was hockey legend Bobby Orr’s birthday. He was 72 years of age. I remember watching him come to London Gardens in the early seventies when The Big Bad Bruins had training camp here. Sanderson, McKenzie, Cheevers, Esposito, Stanfield, Cashman, Hodge, Doak, Bailey, Reggie Leach for one year, Orr, Sinden….you get the idea. Here to celebrate the birth of the pride of Parry Sound is a clip of some of Bobby Orr at his best.
Okay, that was for the hockey fans. Time for a quick baseball question. How many stitches are there in a regulation baseball?
I give you Talkin’ Tiger Baseball by Terry Cashman. If you are not a Tiger fan, don’t worry, i won’t hold that against you.
All of you soccer fans, don’t worry, I didn’t forget you. I have lots to put up over the next few days, but, today, for a laugh, it’s Philopsophers Football, once again by the Python group.
Now, to cover the NFL fans. We need something to make it worth missing football, right? So, here to give you your dose of big hits, is the Lingerie Football League. Yes, it’s a thing.
Some of the most rabid sports fans are those who follow basketball. Now, I must admit, I was never a tall kid in school, so, basketball was not at the top of my list. But, thanks to this clip, I may give it a try again.
I hope you have been enjoying this so far. I am doing my best to keep my sanity during the suspension of all of the major sports leagues, and I hope this helps. Let me know what you like, what sports you want me to try to find and I will do my best to find something. Of course, after I wash my hands.
I am going to take my leave and head to the dressing room now, and in the meantime, I will leave you one more song, and the answer to the baseball question. There are 108 double or 216 single stitches in a baseball.
