ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1066, William The Conqueror invaded England to claim the English throne. Up until that day, he was known as William the Wanna Be. But you already know by his name how the invasion went. Otherwise he would be known as William the Almost Pulled It Off.

In 1850, flogging was officially abolished as a form of punishment in the U.S. Navy.
We really need to talk with our boss about one of those bans.
Oh, so that's why the boss always says "This ain't the Navy" before our weekly floggings.
Some day, I hope our company will adopt that standard.
That was the inspiration for the old cliche, "If you can't beat 'em, don't."

On this date in 1858 Donati's comet became the first comet to be photographed. Some said it would become famous, while others wrote it off as just a passing star...

In 1892, the very first nighttime football game takes place, in Mansfield, PA, between Mansfield University and Wyoming Seminary. If only they had lights. They thought they were playing completely different teams.

On this date in 1920, eight members of the Chicago White Sox were indicted for allegedly throwing the 1919 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds in what has become known as the "Black Sox" scandal. Can you believe that? They actually played the World Series in September?
