  1. The SEC should be so proud...
    And good for Pittsburgh - they are color-coordinated.

  2. Most of these we knew ... Know a Lot of "useless facts",... my Friends ... and others (especially kids) enjoy asking me odd questions... and almost always, we can rattle off a batch of info...
    we have wasted my entire life learning all that I could.... Amassed quite a bit of knowledge over these many years.... now all that info dies with me....
    ... but, good Sir, we still really enjoy reading lists of "Facts" , just for fun...
    an enjoyable post ....

  3. I didn't know even half of these. The number of cows for footballs shocked me but not the news about the SEC.
