The Sunday Bottom 5
The very best of the very worst of the week that was…

Friends, The Sunday Bottom 5 will return. 

Today At The Site
The Diary of a Nobody: Sparrow looks with no small amount of scorn upon coupons a local steakhouse brought by the hotel’s front desk. Today’s Diary. 

And the steakhouse isn’t even all that great because it makes you do your own cooking…I am not making that up…I was going to say it’s one of those joints that makes you do your own cooking, but I’d never run into this before…They do good business, tho…Their adverts always show people standing over the grill holding drinks and laughing while their cut of beef turns into a projectilr…I’ve never understood this because one of the reasons you go to a restaurant is because you’re too lazy to cook that night. 

It’s Sparrow, an average man passing an average life.

On This Date
In 1917 – Ten people, including nine police officers, are killed when a bomb explodes at a police station in Milwaukee. The bomb had originally been placed in a nearby church and had been delivered to the police building by a concerned citizen. The bomb also killed a civilian who was there to report on some mischief her boyfriend was involved in. The bombers were never caught, and it remained the largest slaughter of police in the US until the 9/11 attacks. 

In 1996 – Barry Sanders of the Detroit Lions establishes a new NFL record with his eighth consecutive 1,000-yard rushing season in a 31-14 loss to the Chicago Bears. Sanders rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown and would finish the season with 1,553 yards. Sanders would extend the record to ten consecutive seasons, a mark that was later tied by Curis Martin and his now held by Emmitt Smith, who rushed for 1,000 or more yards in eleven consecutive seasons from 1991-2001. 

In 1951 – Cold, Cold, Heart by Tony Bennett is at #1 on Billboard’s Best Sellers in Stores chart – one of several predecessors to the Hot 100 – for the fourth of six consecutive weeks. It was the third chart single for Bennett and his second of three #1s. Earlier, Hank Williams had hit #1 with the song on Billboard’s Most Played by Folk Jockeys chart, one of several country charts published at the time. The song was written by Paul Gilley, who later sold the rights to Williams, which is why Williams is sometimes credited as the writer. 

Perseverance must finish its work…
