I’m giving myself a pass on yesterday’s #100DaysBlogging post, so today is counting for days 4 and 5. I had every intention to write this, but then I came home and feel asleep on the couch. Give me a break, I was in the ER, okay?
I was sitting on the ER bed and my dad was to my left. Every time I moved my head to look at him, it felt like my vision was trailing behind and would catch up after a few seconds. He said it reminded him of the “glowing puck.”
Apparently in the 90s, Fox had a contract with the NHL to include glowing electrodes in the puck that would “make it easier” for home viewers to see the puck because it glowed.
It was called FoxTrax. I wish they were punnier with the name and somehow worked in “trot” instead of “trax.”
Other things I learned yesterday:
- There were three major league baseball games that ended in riots.
- 10 Cent Beer Night at a Cleveland Indians game — can you imagine where that went wrong? Nope, me neither.
- Disco Demolition Night — because who wouldn’t think that blowing up a box of disco records would do irreparable damage to the field?
- Washington Senators’ final game at RFK Stadium. Fans were angered and the impending move to Texas and stormed the field looking for souvenirs. Oh and the security staff had already walked out — I know when I’m mad about something, my first reaction is to cause mayhem, too.
- The 70s were a weird time for baseball.
- I have vertigo. And not the Hitchcock movie.
