    Look, yesterday Wes Welker went Rocky Mountain high.   What more was there to talk about?  

    Oh, there was another big announcement, and even if you're not Catholic, it seemed to have taken over the headlines.   

    Life happens.  :D

    Interesting indeed.

    How many dates in history include news about the Yardbirds, the Beatles, a Mafia boss, an historic blizzard, a presidential impeachment trial, a mass murder, discovery of a planet, a homerun king, a trip to the moon, Darwin's theory and a Spanish explorer arriving in the new land. (We''ll disregard the award to the boy band...that was thrown in for the heck of it)?
