November 2, 2010 - They Might Be World Series Champs

san francisco giants win world series
Really Short Story: San Francisco is about to riot like they just legalized gay marriage.
Short Story: A team named after gigantic human beings hadn't won the World Series in 56 years, and the city of San Francisco hadn't seen a World Series champion in its own city ever…until last night. Before this year, having the Giants in the World Series meant you were more likely to see a massive earthquake strike the city than to have the team actually win the whole thing. They had been to the Series 3 times since their move to Northern California in 1957, but each time had ended in disappointment. However, thanks to a group of young pitchers and a dude named Buster, they finally have their World Series title...which should momentarily ease the pain of any anti-gay marriage and anti-marijuana voting results today.
Johnny Vander Meer
November 2, 2010: Johnny Vander Meer Day! - Which former Major League pitcher once threw no-hitters in consecutive starts?
WHY?: Some people are destined for greatness. Some people are destined to be the answer to a question on Trivial Pursuit. I guess you could consider Johnny Vander Meer somewhere in between the two. You see, in 1938, the a 24 year-old Vander Meer threw no-hitters 4 days apart in consecutive games for the Cincinnati Reds. Not surprisingly, it was the only time this has ever been done. His second no-hitter was in the first night game at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. He won a World Series title two years later with the Reds, and then threw a no-hitter 12 years later playing in something called the Texas League, making him the first pitcher with 2 Major League no-hitters and one Texas League no-hitter.

TOMORROW'S contenders:
Dolph Lundgren - His name is Dolph and he played Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. Do you need to know anything else?
Roseanne Barr - More famous for singing the National Anthem horribly…or for marrying Tom Arnold?
Charles Bronson - From what I can gather, he was like his era's version of Vin Diesel?
