I have a couple of problems with the Red Soxs. First, their fans are a whinny bunch in general, and they refuse to acknowledge the fact the the Red Soxs over the years, in an effort to beat the Yankees, have become the over paid bunch of mega stars that they have complained about throughout the years. Second, I really like some of their over payed mega stars. Therefore, I find myself torn while following the World Series. I won't to see some of the individuals do well, but I really want the Rockies to win. It is looking less likely that this will happen since some of the individuals are doing too well.
Friday in the News: A map from 1418 could prove that America was discovered not by Columbus but by a man from China. The world and all its continents may have been discovered by a Chinese admiral named Zheng He, whose fleet roamed the oceans between 1405 and 1435. The map, dated 1418, "will revolutionize our thinking about 15th-century world history," says Gunnar Thompson, a student of ancient maps and early explorers. (Brought to you by WWDTM daily calendar.)
Happy Birthday Wishes to Ivan Simon Cary Elwes. Mr. Elwes provides half of the love tandem in the classic movie The Princess Bride, which is one of my favorite movies of all time. He has also appeared in many other films over the years. Additionally, he was the lead voice actor in The Bard's Tale video game and has done other voice acting in several animated productions. He once turned down an offer to join the Royal Shakespeare Company to focus on his movie career.
(Honorable birthday mentions: Sasha Cohen-American Olympic silver medalist (figure skating), Natalie Merchant-musician and former lead singer of 10,000 Maniacs, Hillary Rodham Clinton-former First Lady of the United States, Junior Senator from New York, Presidential hopeful, Jaclyn Smith-Charlie's Angles, and Pat Sajak-Wheel of Fortune host.)
Sorry, I got carried away and forgot to post the winning number. Thanks for the heads up.
