Coach Calipari & Lon Chaney Jr.

What, oh what might they have in common?

Nothing I know of except that they were both born today. Oh…and perfect hair. Mr. Chaney had perfect hair when he played the Werewolf and Coach Calipari had perfect hair when he played the Gators this week.

There are other interesting things to celebrate today.

–          Today in 1863 the fire extinguisher was patented. I’m supposin’ this was the beginning of the end of bucket brigades as a possible career path.

–          The singing telegram was introduced today in 1933 by the Postal Telegraph Company. This would have been just in time for Valentine’s Day.

–          Hippie Geezer Moment Alert! Today in 1964, Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are a’Changin’” was released. Try sending that tune in a telegram!
