SPORTY SPICE

 


The number of yards in an American Football field (not including the end zones).
The number of runs required for a cricket batsman to score a Century, a significant milestone
The record number of points scored in one NBA game, set by Wilt Chamberlain of the Philadelphia Warriors on March 2, 1962
The Freedom 100 is an Indy Pro Series auto race held the Friday before the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
The 2004 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals was the 100th Fall Classic

The minimum distance in yards for a Par 3 on a golf course. 


And finally 100 episodes is typically the milestone at which a television series is considered viable for syndication.  Most prime time series reach this milestone in season 5.  Ironic, since it takes about 5 months to compile 100 blog posts!


So what happens at a Blogger's 100th post, you are surely asking yourself by now.  Nothing much just blathering on about random uselss factoids.

Seriously folks, thanks for sticking with me.  I appreciate your love, and comments, and comments, and love!  Here's to another crazy 100!
