Baseball’s career leader in base hits is not in the Hall of Fame. Baseball’s career leader in home runs is also not in the Hall of Fame.

The Cars debut album, entitled The Cars, is #284 on Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time (compiled in 2003). It is a well-deserved honor. This is one of my favorite (in the top 10, anyway) non-Rush albums. Released in 1978, The Cars peaked at #18 on Billboard’s album chart, but has also sold more than 6 million copies in the U.S. alone. If you want a straightforward, no-frills rock-and-roll album, this is for you.

The year 1978 was 39 years ago. I remember 1978 quite well. And the math says it was 39 years ago.

Memphis is getting its own Hattie B’s. Given that Memphis already has Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken, this is just too much winning.

So far, the left’s only “victory” over President Trump is getting the 9th Circus to put a stay on his executive order that places a temporary ban on immigrants from 7 nations — identified by President Obama, no less — that harbor terrorists. The 9th Circus completely ignored the Constitution and simply relied on their own liberalism to justify the stay. Not only did they ignore the law, they also aligned the left and the Democrat Party with jihadists. This is the Democrat Party in 2017, placing jihadists ahead of the American people.

Locals who live near the Michigan/Indiana border refer to their region as Michiana.

Two of the last three basketball national champions have come from outside the Power 5. Before UConn in 2014, the last national champion from a non-power conference was UNLV in 1990.

The name Shrimp Scampi is redundant. Scampi is the Italian word for shrimp. So if you ever order Shrimp Scampi in a restaurant, you’re really just ordering Shrimp Shrimp.

Whenever someone says, “It’s not about the money,” it’s about the money. I’d have a great deal more respect for a person who admits, “Of course it’s about the money.”

My brother graduates from medical school in May. When he does, I will be the only male in my family who does not carry the title of “Dr.” My father is a PhD doctor and my brother will be a medical doctor. My only hope is if some university offers me an honorary PhD in something. But I don’t expect that to ever happen. I will therefore always be the dumb one.
