The Bottom Ten/NCAA Week 14ggggg

Here are some funny lines from this week’s NCAA Bottom Ten:

63-penalty-yards, five (5) rushing yards give Zips 12.6-to-1.0  Penalty-Yards-To-Rushing-Yards ration, with B-10 pollsters “pretty sure” this is “like, one of the worst ever or something”.

Though Monarchs show token early interest with 7-7 first-quarter tie, offense tightens things up with twelve (12)-play drive that results in punt, 17-play marathon that results in missed field goal….

Rice offense tries to save face by punting of final five (5) drives, but damage had already been done.

On This Date
In 1942 – The movie Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, makes its world premiere in New York City. Despite the fact few associated with the film expected too much out of it, Casablanca was nominated for eight Oscars, winning three, including Best Picture and has long been considered a classic of American cinema. The movie was based on an unproduced play called Everybody Comes to Rick’s. 

In 1999 – A.C. Green of the Los Angeles Lakers establishes a new professional basketball record playing in his 1,042nd consecutive game in a 103-80 win over the New Jersey Nets. Greene broke the record that had been established by Ron Boone, who had played in both the ABA and the NBA from 1968-81. Green ultimately played in 1,192 consecutive games and had established the all-time NBA record when he played in his 907th consecutive game in 1997. Both of Green’s records still stand.  

In 1966 – The Supremes are at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the second and final week with You Keep Me Hanging On. It was the eighth of twelve #1 songs for the Supremes and the song was also in its first of four consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s soul chart, where it was their fifth of eight #1s. The song has been covered many times, including a version by Kim Wilde who hit #1 with it on the Hot 100 in 1986
