Just testing out the calendar idea. Some days they are little factoids, some days are trivia questions. I'm hoping that either way they will lead to some fun discussion.

This is only a test. If this had been a real emergency, you would have been instructed to place your head between your knees and kiss your ass goodbye.

Cubs Fact:

On this day in 1979, Cubs pitcher Dick Tidrow threw a fastball through a brick wall. On his second attempt, he missed the wall.
Please don't feed the psychos.

Dick Tidrow's mustache lives on Dick Tidrow's face for protection.

Behind Dick Tidrow's mustache lives a 185mph fastball.

:sigh: as a BNV, I need to know the significance of Dick Tidrow. I get he was a pitcher and apparently he's akin to Chuck Norris.

Does Dick Tidrow sleep with a nightlight because the dark is afraid of Dick Tidrow? Just trying to see where he stacks up among other creatures of notable lore.

BTW: The Lexicon is rather cryptic when discussing Mr. Tidrow. Perhaps that's the point?
