Dan Quisenberry One of my favorite baseball personalities was the quotable Dan Quisenberry, ace relief pitcher for the Kansas City Royals--when the Royals had a good team. The submarine-style hurler recorded 244 career saves, but he was most fondly remembered for his offbeat sense of humor. One year in the Royals' press guide he listed his hobby as 'tinfoil chewing' and said his favorite thing about baseball was 'no homework.' Regarding baseball salaries, Quisenberry said, 'No man is worth another, and none is worth more than $12.95.' On the future, he noted, 'I've seen the future, and it's much like the present, only longer.' Diagnosed with brain cancer in 1998, Quisenberry was typically philosophical: 'I've had so many good things happen to me. So why not me?' He died later that same year at age 45.

Ray Chapman Tragedy On August 16, 1920, Ray Chapman, the Cleveland Indians second baseman, became the only fatality in the history of major league baseball. Chapman died as a result of being hit in the head by a pitch thrown by New York Yankees pitcher Carl Mays. Chapman batted in an exaggerated crouch, so Mays' pitch was just barely out of the strike zone. Chapman died of a severe skull fracture about 12 hours after the mishap. Mays voluntarily turned himself into police and was quickly exonerated of all blame. Chapman's death prompted major league baseball to institute a policy that required soiled or damaged balls to be replaced by spotless white ones so batters could better see pitches. The days of the 'dead ball' and overwhelmingly dominant pitchers were over.

George Blanda passes at age 83 George Blanda, the ageless Hall of Fame quarterback and kicker with the Oakland Raiders, has died. He was 83. The Raiders confirmed the death Monday and issued a statement saying "we are deeply saddened by the passing of the great George Blanda. George was a brave Raider and a close personal friend of Raiders owner Al Davis." Blanda retired a month shy of his 49th birthday before the 1976 season, playing longer than anyone else in pro football history. He spent 10 seasons with the Chicago Bears, part of one with the Baltimore Colts, seven with the Houston Oilers and his final nine with the Raiders. He scored 2,002 points in his career, a pro football record at the time of his retirement, kicking 335 field goals and 943 extra points, running for nine touchdowns and throwing for 236 more.

1978 AFC Championship Game Here's a treat for you NFL fans: the first 10 minutes of NBC's broadcast of the 1978 AFC Championship game between the visiting Houston Oilers and host Pittsburgh Steelers. The game was played on January 7, 1979 in miserable conditions at Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Stadium. Cold rain, huge puddles, and partially frozen artificial turf made this contest difficult for both teams. The Steelers won the game 34-5 and then beat Dallas 35-31 in Super Bowl XIII two weeks later.

The Official Pledge of Allegiance Salute The pledge of allegiance was originally written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, a socialist magazine writer. When he wrote it for an children’s magazine, he also described a salute that he thought would be appropriate during its recital. The pledge was aimed towards children, and the magazine also gave free flags away to schools, where the pledge was originally recited. The salute they were taught to give, with one stiff arm outstretched toward the flag, was deemed the “Bellamy salute” after its creator (who had gotten the idea from a salute that the Romans had done). In the early 1940s, it was noticed that the salute bore a resemblance to a certain other salute being used in Germany at the time (which was based off of the same original Roman salute). As a result, it was formally replaced by Congress with the now-customary hand-on-heart during the pledge.
