...that Dutch soccer/football legend Johan Cruyff was talked into recording a song in 1969, although he's obviously no singer?

The record (entitled "Oei Oei Oei (Dat Was Me Weer Een Loei)") reached #21 in Dutch Top 40. A Spanish version of the song was also released in Spain (because Cruyff was playing for FC Barcelona at the time).

In 1943, because both teams lost many players to the war effort, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers
merged to form the Phil-Pitt Steagles. The team went 5-4-1, the first winning season for a Philadelphia franchise and
just the second winning season for Pittsburgh. the merger dissolved after the season.

In 1944 the Steelers merged with the Chicago Cardinals

Tom Horton's is the roxxorz!1!1!!!!!eh!1!1

Speaking of Canada, the last time a Canadian team won the Cup was the 1993 Montreal Canadiens.  I'm hoping the Senators, Canadiens or Canucks can make something happen so the USA doesn't get to hog all the glory ;)


What about The Leafs? ;D

On October 7, 1916 Georgia Tech beat Cumberland College 222-0 in the most lopsided game in college football history. Georgia Tech scored on almost every single offensive play, and Cumberland only had one play of positive yardage, a 10 yard pass(on 4th and 22, lol).

GT scored over 30 total touchdowns, but never once passed the ball. Instead they had 440 yards on the ground. Cumberland had a total of -42 rushing yards, and turned the ball over 15 times.

The score at the end of the 1st quarter was 63-0, and the score at halftime was 126-0 :o
