Briefly. 

Trivia #1: What recording artist holds the title for having the 30th best album of all-time (Rolling Stone) by a female and the number one album on a list of Greatest Albums Made By Women (NPR)?

Trivia #2: (for you baseball buffs) Name the only three MLB players with 500 homeruns and 10 gold gloves.

Trivia #3: Which of these Boston Bruins is not in the franchises’ top 10 in scoring? – Rick Middleton, Bobby Orr, Cam Neely, Ken Hodge, David Kejci, Patrice Bergeron, Wayne Cashman 

And bad mistakes, I’ve made a few. 

What a great weekend of college hoops and college hockey last weekend! As a friend pointed out, Coach “K” always looks as though he is having a stroke. Frankly, Tom Izzo doesn’t look much different. 

Speaking of Duke… aw shucks, they lost. Great group of freshmen though… DOH! 

I get a daily email from WebMD, just for informational stuff. I received one the other day that was titled: “Foods to eat for more magnesium.” Who’s looking to get more magnesium? 

Don’t you wish you could show up for work and after about one minute get sent home for bad behavior with no ramifications? That’s exactly what the NBA Spurs’ coach Greg Popovich did on Wednesday, getting himself ejected from the game just 63 seconds in. I guess he didn’t want to work that night. 

Wednesday night was the first time Al Horford, Kyrie Irving and Gordon Haywood all had 20 or more points in the same game. It would be nice it that turns out to be a trend.

Inspection, you’re doing it wrong. As reported here a few weeks ago, San Anita race track was closed for over a month as “independent experts” examined the track after 22 horses had died there since last December. It was deemed to be safe and reopened, only to see another horse fall and be euthanized this past Sunday.

Huh? A study conducted by Channel Mum found that one in seven moms and dads think they’ve made a “terrible mistake” in picking their baby’s name. 

The other night Russell Westbrook became just the second player ever with a 20-20-20 triple double. What did he do when he grabbed his 20th rebound to complete the feat? He ran up and down the court, pointing fingers, screaming “redemption”, also stating “this is for Nipsy (Hussle)”, blah, blah, blah. Punk. That same night, Brad Marchand scored his 100th point this seasno. A notable feat in itself. What did he do after getting the assist to hit 100? He grabbed the puck, skated over to his teammates to congratulate them on the goal. He then gave the puck to someone behind the bench and sat down. 

I saw a sweatshirt the other day that read: “I’m Italian. We don’t call the cops, we call family.” 

Like Mick Jagger or not, you have to appreciate that he is going to make every effort to get back on stage, at age 75, following a surgical procedure on his heart. Here’s some other numbers that may leave you scratching your head. Last Sunday, Jagger was spotted in Miami Beach with girlfriend Melanie Hamrick (32), and two of his children: Georgia May (27) and Deveraux (2).

“Do what they say
Say what you mean
One thing leads to another
Tell me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another”
 

Good night everybody!
