History of the World 8/25

Happy Birthday!!
Sean Connery, 1930.
Billy Ray Cyrus, 1961
Marvin Harrison, 1972

On this day:
In 1922, the Cubs beat the Phillies 26-23 in baseball’s highest scoring game.
In 1960, the AFL begins putting names on the back of the jerseys.
In 1985, Dwight Gooden becomes the youngest pitcher at 19 to win 20 games in a season.

It Took Me Five Years To Notice I Was Shot In the Head!
A 35-year-old German man was shot in the head -- and he didn't even notice until FIVE YEARS LATER! Police say our friend was apparently hit in the head by a .22 caliber bullet on New Year's Eve 2005! He recalled getting a blow to the head but he was out on the street partying and drunk at the time so never really paid much attention. The bullet did not penetrate the skull, and the guy only went to see a doctor recently when he felt a lump on the back of his head. An X-ray showed an object under his skin and doctors operated and found the bullet. Police theorize it may have been a stray bullet fired by a reveler in celebration. (
