Lew Burdette, MVP of '57 World Series, dies at 80
1957 was the year I fell in love with baseball, and the Milwaukee Braves were my team. Burdette pitched three complete game victories in the Series that year against the mighty Yankees, with the last two being shutouts. That was his career high point, and it was mighty high indeed. It was probably the greatest series ever pitched by anyone not named Mathewson, made even more impressive by the fact that Burdette was only the Braves' #2 starter! After that Series the rest of his excellent career had to seem like an anticlimax.

Amazingly enough, he had another moment almost as glorious. In 1960, Harvey Haddix of the Pirates pitched 12 perfect innings against the Braves, then lost the game in the 13th. It's one of the most famous games in baseball history, because Haddix was the first and only pitcher in baseball history to pitch more than nine perfect innings in a game, and he went all the way to 12 before losing. Burdette was the reason he lost, and the reason he had to pitch so many innings. Ol' Lew , a tough old bird from West Virginia, one of those guys who looked fiftyish when in his twenties, went all the way and won that game with 13 shutout innings of his own! Here's the box score of that crazy game

Yup, it worked. Dick Cheney took one look at her hooters, put on some granny glasses and started singing cumbayah. He even tried to order some wings.

Turns out General Tso actually preferred KFC.
"Despite its international reputation, however, the dish is virtually unknown in the Chinese province of Hunan itself. When I went to live there four years ago, I scoured restaurant menus for it in vain, and no one I met had ever heard of it. And as I deepened my understanding of Hunanese food, I began to realize that General Tso's chicken was somewhat alien to the local palate."

"General Tso's chicken is named for Tso Tsung-t'ang (now usually transliterated as Zuo Zongtang), a formidable 19th-century general who is said to have enjoyed eating it."

The Craziest Laws in America. Mostly spurious, I suppose, but some of them are hilarious.
"You are not permitted to wear cowboy boots unless you already own at least two cows."

"In Alaska it is illegal to whisper in someone's ear while they are moose hunting."

"Citizens of Kentucky are required to bathe at least once per year." (No wonder they never get any French immigrants.)
