For you sad, deprived Bruins fans – in 1970-1971, Phil Esposito had: 76 goals / 76 assists / 78 games / 71 penalty minutes / 71 +/-

3. Best sports technology developments:

TV camera on wire / instant replay / Strike Zone box / line call in tennis

4. Talking about running up the score:

Wilt Chamberlain of Overbrook High School had 90 points in high school in a 123-21 win over Roxborough

5. Average attendance across baseball over the last seven decades:

* 2010 – 2013 – 30,366
* 2000 – 2009 – 30,558
* 1990 – 1999 – 27,938

* 1970 – 1979 – 16,533
* 1960 – 1969 – 14,087

6. Favorite catches:

* Dwight Evans 1975 Game 6
* Fred Lynn in center field against Yankees 1975 – double header at Shea Stadium
* Randy Moss to tie up Jets game on Thursday night football
* Coco Crisp center field dive
* Kevin McHale catching Kurt Rambis around the neck
* Yaz in 1967 Billy Rohr one-hitter
* Tom Brunansky to clinch Division

7. Amazing Stats:

In the famous Catch Game on 1/10/82 in which Dwight Clark’s catch was the winning touchdown vs. the Cowboys – Joe Montana threw three interceptions in that game

8. Old School:

The Patriots had four of the 1995 All American football team: Terry Glenn, Lawyer Milloy, Brandon Mitchell and Teddy Bruschi

9. Just a Little Bit Outside:

Never can get enough of this – Hagler – Hearns:

In round three Hagler takes less than 15 steps backward!

10. Randomocity:

* Money lost in 401K’s since Tuesday
* Last Ivy League player to be name NCAA football All American – John Pagliaro from Yale in 1977
* What happened to the excitement around college basketball?
* Didn’t want to like Die Hard, Almost Famous or Catch Me If You Can – but I did
* Wouldn’t you love to be Gronk’s wing man on an off week?
* Twice in the 1960 playoffs, Bill Russell had at least 39 rebounds in a game
* 1997 NCAA All American football team included – Peyton Manning, Randy Moss, Ricky Williams
* First game next year against the Yankees should knock down the lead off hitter – and let them know we’re not f-ing around
