Agreed, 4 winds. Anytime a thread starter feels the need to post multiple times in the first 5 posts to keep a thread going, it's a fail.

One of the Boston Celtics’ all-time greats, swingman John Havlicek would have been 80 today. He died last April at 79.

5 things on ‘Hondo’:

1) He played 16 seasons with the Celtics during which they won 8 NBA titles Only Bill Russell and Sam Jones had more championship rings.

2) He played college ball at Ohio State with teammates Jerry Lucas, Larry Siegfried and Bobby Knight. The Buckeyes won the NCAA title in 1960.

3) He was drafted as a wide receiver by the NFL Cleveland Browns, and as a shooting guard by the Celtics.

4) His clutch steal in the closing seconds of the 1965 Eastern Conference championship series’ 7th game secured the title for the Celts and inspired one of the great radio calls in the sport’s history, by Johnny Most: ‘Havlicek stole the ball!’

5) He is the Celtics’ all-time leader in points, scoring a career total of 26,395. He played in a total of 1,270 games.

Jimi Hendrix arrived on the London scene like a ton of bricks in 1966, smashing every British blues guitarist to pieces the instant they saw him play. As vocalist Terry Reid tells it, when Hendrix played his first showcase at the Bag O’Nails, arranged by Animals’ bassist Chas Chandler, “there were guitar players weeping. They had to mop the floor up. He was piling it on, solo after solo. I could see everyone’s fillings falling out. When he finished, it was silence. Nobody knew what to do. Everybody was dumbstruck, completely in shock.”

He only exaggerates a little, by all accounts, and when Reid says “everybody,” he means everybody: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Jeff Beck, Paul McCartney, The Who, Eric Burdon, John Mayall, and maybe Jimmy Page, though he denies it. Mayall recalls, “the buzz was out before Jimi had even been seen here, so people were anticipating his performance, and he more than lived up to what we were expecting.” In fact, even before this legendary event sent nearly every star classic rock guitarist back to the woodshed, Jimi had arrived

On this date in 1963 Waterbury native (my dad played local ball with him) Jimmy Piersall celebrates hitting the 100th homer of his career by circling the bases backwards at the Polo Grounds in NY. Phillies catcher Bob Oldis and next batter Tim Harkness look on in amazement.  Jimmy got the idea for the stunt after being disappointed by the lack of attention Duke Snider's 400th received.

Casey handed him his walking papers two days later. Stengel however did pay Piersall a major compliment at one point in his career, saying “I thought Joe DiMaggio was the greatest defensive outfielder I ever saw,” said Stengel, who managed DiMaggio from 1949-51. “But I have to rate Piersall better.”
