Just received this fundraising notice from the Klobuchar campaign (I added the hyperlinks):
Sam and Sylvia Kaplan along with
Jim Klobuchar and Special Guests
Honoring Minnesota’s next
United States Senator
For a pre Vikings game brunch
Sunday, October 22, 2006
At the home of Sam & Sylvia Kaplan
As you know, Amy’s father, Jim Klobuchar is a retired sports writer for the Star Tribune and may have something to do with bringing this group together.
I’m also filing this under the “you learn something new every day category” on Verne Gagne:
“Verne had four Big Ten Wrestling Championships, two NCAA Wrestling Championships, the 1949 AAU Wrestling Championship and a slot on the 1948 United States Olympic team on his resume.
Following a brief stint playing for the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, Verne turned to professional wrestling…”
and on Trent Tucker:
The Trent Tucker Rule
On January 15, 1990, when Tucker was with New York, with 0.1 remaining in a game against the Bulls, he unbelievably got off a wild three-point shot off at the buzzer and the three unbelievably went in. The basket counted and the Knicks won. The NBA then established a rule that states that “0.3 needs to be on the clock in order for a player to get a shot off whether they make it or not.”
