Not this day in history.  But.. a sad date in history.  February 4, 1983.  The day we lost one of the most beautiful voices of all time. And said :

"Goodbye to Love"

I think I saw on twitter that on July 7th, 1993 Tom Browning left Reds dugout and joined the rooftop fans at Wrigley too!

I wish I had bought a bunch of their stock back then.

With an Amazon credit card and a phone that listens when I say Alexa, I think Amazon owns stock in me!

Shame on any parents that named a newborn Alexa in the last couple of years.

This day in history, one year ago today. There was no vivid-19 to deal with. No social turmoil. Wimbledon had just concluded. And my Twins were looking pretty good!

Steuben I think of you at least 1 time a week. I have a pair of Twins Nike shorts that are really nice that Alex Meyer former pitcher gave me. I wear them to mow in and every time I say Steubby and his twins

July 8th, 1996....The "Spice Girls" release their debut single "Wannabe."

Thankfully I was listening to sports radio at the time...

This begs the question.  If someone like Isaac Haas gave you a pair of Purdue shorts, would you wear them?  If not, what would you do with them?

Also on this day in 1925, Adolf Hitler publishes "Mein Kampf."

I've wanted to read it to understand what was in that dude's head but am worried if I buy it I will get flagged.

It is an interesting read knowing how everything turned out.

I tried to read "Mein Kampf" years ago, but it's just not a very readable book. It was apparent early in the book the guy had a screw loose.

A better insight was William Shirer's "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich." Very meticulous documentation of the Nazi rise after WWI. Shirer's bias shows through at times, but he WAS there during Hitler's rise to power and is very thorough in his research. I even read all of the footnotes (and there are a lot of them). Fascinating book...

Hitler was a vagabond and very lazy. Terrible artist. Didnt believe he had to work. 

I read Shirers book. Tedious at times but very informative.
