Walter Jerry Payton was born on July 25, 1954 in Columbia, Mississippi. “Never die easy. Why run out of bounds and die easy. Make that linebacker pay. It carries into all facets of your life. It’s okay to lose, to die, but don’t die without trying, without giving it your best.” Walter Payton
#1 hit single is titled We are the body’s blood and they perform it at every live
used to have friendly rivalry with Karasuno (no one really knows what happened to them after their manager, Ukai, retired and they fell off the charts) and actually had a joint single called Battle at the Garbage Heap planned
good friends with the members of Fukurodani and also have a friendly rivalry with them, often seeing who has more top charting singles and album sales (if Kuroo gets his hands on helping write song lyrics, he’ll often throw in some jabs at Bokuto, Fukurodani’s leader, who usually retaliates)
most of their songs are about teamwork, friendship, and connecting with each other
one of their outfits worn to team photo shoots includes a pair of cat ears
their most popular outfits that makes the fans go crazy is a red/white sports jersey (no one knows why it has that effect on the fans)
Nekomata is their manager but leaves most decisions regarding the group to the actual members
Naoi helps out with composing the songs and often enlists Kenma’s help since he has great ears
John Smoltz made his major league debut on this date in 1988. Smoltz and the Braves were in New York to play the Mets. Smoltz pitched 8 innings giving up 4 hits, 1 run, 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. This was also his first win as the Braves won the game, 6 – 1.
Like, and take Tim Tebow seriously. He’s a goddamn horrendous monster who already has the vote of every southern baptist and gator fan and every shithead who still sports a Tebow Broncos jersey they bought from some Chinese website. It doesn’t take much to get elected to the House. This guy’s going to be javelin throwing defense of marriage bills straight into the ground for years now.
Now, I’ve heard that the guy is a fucking idiot, which makes sense because he’s an Adam and Eve hung out with dinosaurs 6000 years ago jackass who went to the University of Florida. I’ve also heard he’s got the personality of a wet paper bag, so who knows how a political career will work out.
My favorite Tim Tebow story was, and I can’t remember the exact details, but apparently he wanted to get everybody to pray before the Wonderlic test (The written test designed to see how much thePublicly funded colleges have failed football players), and somebody said “Man, shut the FUCK up.”
On this date in 1974 Bob Gibson became just the second Major League player to reach the 3,000th strikeout milestone. Gibson and the Cardinals were facing the Reds at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. In the second inning Gibson fanned Cesar Geronimo to get his 3,000th.
