One response to “Episode 281: Zurich Recap/Brussels Preview

  1. Hi guys….

    last week, you posed the question: “who is the first musical guest you think of from Saturday Night Live?” The only answer is Billy Preston, the FIRST musical guest way back in 1975. And the first host was George Carlin.

    yes, i’m old. Hence my Evan Jager reference to Samurai Delicatessen…

    On Friday, IAAF posted a ‘happy 104th birthday’ on Facebook to 3 time Olympic Champion Glenn Davis; 400mIH in 1956-1960, and 4×4 in 1960. However, IAAF’s math meant that Glenn would run been passing the stick in Rome to 400m Champ and relay anchor Otis Davis while in his 49th year. IAAF must have been using metric math or something. I posted something snarky on their page, and they quickly fixed their error.

    A while back, I was talking with an older friend about the Rome Olympics (no, I hadn’t been born yet). He mentioned Cal Berkeley college teammate Jack Yerman, who won gold on that same relay team. From memory, I blurted out, ‘Yerman, Young, and the Davis twins.’ My friend looked at me funny; 1) he appreciated my track history knowledge 2) he informed me that the Davis ‘twins’ were not exactly twins. Which was exactly my point, as any Oregon fan would know….look them up.
