Most drinks these days aren't real drinks
It's been a while since I posted a good bartender rant.  Here's something that came up last night: Bars and restaurants usually have cocktail lists.  The vast majority of them invent some of the drinks on their menus.  In doing so, they also think of names ...

The 'high five' was invented in 1977 by a gay baseball player?
I saw a feature on SportsCenter tonight that blew my mind a little bit.  First, I don't for one second believe that in the history of history, no two people every slapped hands above their heads before the summer of 1977. That's just impossible. And second,...

Are triples the most random thing in baseball? (I bet you can't name the MLB leaders)
Most baseball stats are an indication of something.  There's usually a correlation between stuff like batting average, on-base percentage, home runs, RBI, etc. and how good a hitter somebody is.  In general, players also tend to put up similar numbers from ...

David Ortiz 500 home run watch update (it's definitely happening this year)
On August 6, I wrote a blog suggesting David Ortiz was on pace to hit home run No. 500 this season.  At the time, he was at 487 with 54 games remaining--requiring a pace of one long ball every 4.15 contests to reach 500. In Boston's last 23 games, Ortiz has...

How lazy is it that both villains in "The Karate Kid" have the same name?
Somehow it took me 31 years to realize this.  It just popped into my head when I was writing a blog about Barney Stinson's theory on who the real Karate Kid is . The leader of the Cobra Kai gang is named Johnny Lawrence.  The sensei's name is John Kreese.  ...
