Sports Oddities

Did you know that only four presidents have graced the covered of Sports Illustrated? That’s right and they were John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan twice, and Bill Clinton. With the success of the Cavaliers and Indians, the city of Cleveland is having a good run in sports. But those Browns are still having trouble getting on the same page as the other teams in the city. Thanks to the Browns, Cleveland is the only NFL city not to have either been in the Super Bowl or ever hosted one. I bet you didn’t know that only one city can claim winning three titles in the same year. In 1935, the Detroit Lions won the NFL championship, the Tigers won the Worlds Series, and the Red Wings hoisted the Stanley Cup. Man, that is one heck of a year. You know Ted Williams is widely regarded in baseball as the best hitter who ever lived. But the splendid splinter couldn’t outhit Bill Buckner. In his career that was defined by that ball that went through his legs in the 1986 World Series, Buckner has an impressive 2,715 hits or 61 more than Williams. Despite not playing basketball after high school, Bruce Jenner, who is now Caitlyn, was drafted 139th in 1976 by the Kansas City Kings, who now reside in Sacramento. That was the year Jenner won an Olympic gold medal in the decathlon. During the 1961-62 season, Wilt Chamberlain AVERAGED 50.4 points and 22.9 rebounds PER game which is truly amazing. What’s more amazing, the hall of fame center didn’t win the MVP that year---it went to Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics. And get this. The average golf ball has 336 dimples. Isn’t that cute?
