Yinz guyz, listen up!!!

August 5, 2011

So for my (almost) 100 Twitter followers*, every day of the week while at work I do an "#onthisday" tweet.  The AP wires send a list of interesting things that happened on each day of the year.  I read them at 3am on the dot and tweet my favorite to my followers who are all sleeping.  I was particularly excited to see this one today:

On August 5, 1921, a baseball game was broadcast for the first time as KDKA radio announcer Harold Arlin described the action between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Phillies from Forbes Field.  The Pirates won, 8-5.

Cool, huh?  I thought so too!  I dig useless knowledge -- especially when it's about Pittsburgh and my teams.  Soooo yinz know what this means: let's eat peanuts, watch a Pirates game, and possibly drink "spirits" in celebration.  One more fact that makes the Buccos awesome! :)

*Side note: if you're not following me on Twitter yet, shame on you!!!  My tweets are hardly boring ;) Thinkabbadit.
