ON THIS DAY

ON THIS DAY
On this day in 1935, Ozzie & Harriet were married. We thought her name was Sharon. In 1940, The Cincinnati Reds won the World Series in game seven as they defeat the Detroit Tigers, 2-1, in 10 innings.
  • Wow, they had already made it to game 7 of the World Series and we haven't even started the playoffs yet.
  • We haven't even made it past the first round.
  • At this rate, we're going to be watching game 7 of the World Series at Thanksgiving dinner.

On this date in 1945, President Truman announced that atomic bomb secrets would only be shared with Britain and Canada. Of course, since then, the Chinese and the Russians have helped themselves.
In 1956, Don Larson pitched the only perfect game ever hurled in the World Series. Gee, back then, they were already in the World Series by now. We just wrapped up the first round of playoffs, with two to go!
On this date in 1957, the Brooklyn Dodgers announced they were moving to Los Angeles. The team felt it needed a fresh start... uh, in smoggy LA.
In 1966, the U.S. government officially banned the drug, LSD. Supporters of the drug said it was all the Green Meanies' fault.
On this date in 1978, Kenneth Warby sets the world speed record on water at 514 kph. He was still five minutes late to work.
In 1997, the Martian probe Pathfinder yielded evidence that the planet may have supported life... or at least, several Starbucks. What is it about space exploration and the word, "probe"?

On this date in 2003, Californians recalled their governor, Gray Davis, and replaced him with Arnold "Does the Housekeeper come with the Governor's mansion?" Schwarzenegger. A brighter day for California, except for maids.
