No, not shopping list. I can handle those. I mean lists like the 100 greatest pitchers in MLB history. I came across an alphabetical list the other day of rock & roll songs. I'm not going there! I got to thinking about lists last night watching a Boston TV station after the Boston Bruins improbable comeback to win Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. They became the first NHL team to come back from a 3 goal deficit, in the 3rd Period, of a Game 7. For you non-puck lovers, that's a huge deal! The commentators went on to ask the question: what was the greatest comeback in Boston sports history? The Patriots winning the Snow Bowl (thank goodness for the 'tuck rule) on their way to their first Super Bowl? The 2004 Red Sox overcoming a 3 game lead by the dreaded Yankees on their way to their first World Championship since 1918? Or how about DJ stealing the ball and feeding it to Larry Legend under the basket to beat the hated Pistons? And then last night. Down 4-1 with about 10 minutes to play, this Jekyll and Hyde team came all the way back and won in Overtime. So here I am trying to contemplate this list and make my choice, and what to I stumble across?
ESQUIRE's List of "75 Books Every Man Should Read".
Sheeeesh! Lists are everywhere! I can't escape them.
That is a STACK of 75 that I might contemplate though. Thank goodness, about half of them I've read already.
And no, I don't do 'Bucket Lists'!
Oh ya, I almost forgot... the Sox beating the Yankees 4 games to 3 and heading off to the World Series.
Got a favorite comeback?
And I'm not talking about, "Your mother's fat too!"
