Cal Day/Triple Play

From http://articles.latimes.com/

Here is what I think is a good idea – with Labor Day on the first Monday of every September, make the first Tuesday of every September a National Holiday in honor of Cal Ripken breaking Lou Gehrig’s record today 6 September 1995 (click here.)  That way, we would have two days off back-to-back and REALLY enjoy a break from work. 

Since Cal was the epitome of going to work everyday, he would be a good role model of how hard work should be rewarded.  Also, if the trend of having schools start after Labor Day continues, why not have an even nicer end-of-summer-TWO-day break for everyone?  (The closest we have to a two day holiday is Thanksgiving and Black Friday and everyone knows what a mess that Friday-after has become.)   Reward everyone then with a 2 day Labor Day/Cal Day break. 

Speaking of baseball, here is a baseball story for you involving triple plays.  Earlier this season the White Sox turned an unusual triple play, the first of its kind in the history of the game.  (Still kind of cool isn’t it that after all these years and all the ballgames that have been played, there are still “firsts” to be witnessed?)  Watch the play here:

As weird a play as that was, here is something even weirder about it: the White Sox catcher Navarro who threw the ball to the Sox third baseman who tagged the runner for the third out, had been involved in another unique, one-of-a-kind triple play earlier in his career (click here for story🙂
Given that there have only been 707 triple plays in the history of the game, for catcher Navarro to have been involved in 2 of them and both of them so unique, is kind of remarkable.  Talk about being in the right place at the right time!  Unlike Dr. John:
