Cubs Calendar 2/17/12 - Quick
Posted 17 February 2012 - 08:41 AM
Wait, I thought the Red Sox and Yankees broke that record with one of their games this year? Oh I see, shortest game in NL history. That makes sense.
One hour, four minutes.
edit: I went to search for the correct answer after posting this -- couldn't find it -- but I did note that the shortest game in NL history (a speedy 51 minutes) was played on the same day. Odd.

I'm not sure that your calendar is correct on this one.
58 minutes...I have no f$%ing clue...just throwing it out there...
I do not believe this. OC nails it again. He is either psychic or psychotic, I'm not sure which.
The last game of the 1919 season was on 9/28, a Cubs win (2-0) over the Reds in Cincy, and it lasted 1 hour 15 minutes. The last Cubs home game of the season was a week earlier, on 9/21, a Boston Braves win, and it lasted 58 minutes. And to clarify my earlier comment, the shortest NL game ever recorded was also on 9/28/19, a 51-minute Giants 6-1 win over the Phillies.
I know, Phil, you're only reporting -- we're deciding -- but it's frustrating that the Cubs can't fact-check their own calendar.

Well... yeah. I guess that's how the world works. I'm sure there are piles of 2012 St Louis Cardinals calendars stacked up in a corner somewhere from the same publisher. Still, it's annoying.
Actually, I'm not sure this calendar is actually put out by the Cubs. It is probably some third party that licensed it with the Cubs.
I want you all to know that when the 2013 TWC Trivia calendar comes out, I will have fact-checked each individual entry for clarity and accuracy. Oh, and it'll have pictures. *wink*
