Random Thursday


Today there's a variety of sports in our random facts on sports from True Facts That Sound Like Bull$#*t by Shane Carley. Even though I'm not a sports fan I can admit that some of these factoids are rather interesting. Though I do look forward to the other topics! Lol.

Did you know that Bill Sharman is the only player who was ejected from an MLB game without ever actually appearing in a game? Sharman was called up to the Dodgers and was ejected along with the rest team's bench, after what the team viewed as a bad call by the umpire. He would later go onto to be in the Hall of Fame as a basketball player for the Boston Celtics.
