    Pretty self explanatory, thought it might be fun.

    The triple deke is the most deadly move in all of hockey.

    (you want to go to the 5:30 mark and play from there.)

    That in the two-division era of Major League Baseball, the Cubs could beat the Mets in the last game of the regular season and go to the World Series even though they were in the same division, as long as Henry Rowengartner can close them out.
  5. That a bucket of KFC chicken is not an adequate replacement for a live chicken. And that Pedro Cerano's faith in Jobu can't overcome an 0-2 count in a one-game playoff with the Yankees.

    That when you insist on five passes at the start of the season, it's ok to scrap that for the biggest possession of the season.

    That you should take a southpaw boxer, turn him into a righty in order to confuse the champ, then let your southpaw get clobbered for 14 rounds because obviously the champ isn't confused, then tell him he can switch for the last round, only to have your southpaw resist for some inexplicable reason. Then the southpaw switches anyways.

    And that is all done to protect the southpaw's bad eye, which the doctors are worried that he will go blind. That is, until he wins the fight, then no one ever worries about the bad eye again.

    That the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap.
