Trivia

Q: Eritrean-born U.S. citizen Meb Keflezighi, a San Diego resident, former UCLA Bruin and Olympic silver medalist in 2004, won Monday's 118th Boston Marathon in a time of 2:08.37. Name the last previous American runner to win the Boston Marathon.

A: Greg Meyer, a Michigan native and University of Michigan and Boston University runner, won the 1983 Boston Marathon in a time of 2:09.0, making it 31 years until Keflezighi reclaimed the title for the USA. Kenyan runners won 19 Boston titles in the interim.


Today in …

2004 – The San Diego Chargers take University of Mississippi quarterback Eli Manning with the first overall selection in the NFL draft. Prior to draft day, Manning had publicly stated that he would refuse to play for the Chargers. The New York Giants, with the fourth pick, take North Carolina State QB Philip Rivers, and a trade is quickly consummated. Manning will go to the Giants in exchange for Riverts, a third-round pick in the 2004 draft and a first-round pick in 2005. Chargers use their extra draft picks wisely, taking kicker Nate Kaeding in 2004 and linebacker Shawne Merriman in 2005. Rivers, Kaeding and Merriman will each represent San Diego in multiple Pro Bowls. Manning, also a future Pro Bowler, will lead the Giants to Super Bowl victories following the 2007 and 2011 seasons.

Trivia

Q: Monday's 118th running of the Boston Marathon took on special significance in light of last year's terrorist bombings. What does the annual Patriots' Day holiday in Massachusetts, on which the race is traditionally held, commemorate?

A: Patriots' Day, which is also observed in Wisconsin and Maine, commemorates the anniversary of the battles of Lexington and Concord, just outside of Boston, the first battles of the American Revolution on April 19, 1775. Since 1969, the holiday has been observed on the third Monday in April.


Today in …

2004 – Former Arizona Cardinals safety Pat Tillman is killed in a tragic friendly fire incident in Afghanistan at the age of 27. Tillman played four seasons in the NFL before enlisting in the U.S. Army in June, 2002. The Army initially claims that Tillman died during a firefight with Taliban insurgents near the village of Sperah. However, an investigation will disclose that he was killed when fellow Army Rangers fired in confusion, believing that nearby gunfire came from the enemy. A further examination of the incident reveals that Army brass had covered up the events leading to Tillman's death. A hearing befor the U.S. Congress will take place in 2007. The relentless efforts of Tillman's parents and brothers to learn the truth will be profiled in a documentary film entitled “The Tillman Story.”

BACK IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT - J.R. TODD RETURNS FULL-TIME FOR KALITTA NHRA TEAM PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jim Buchberger   
Wednesday, April 16, 2014 11:50 AM

alt

Fiery drag racing legend and team owner Connie Kalitta reportedly was quite irate after driver David Grubnic botched a run in qualifying at the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals Friday, March 28, in Las Vegas.

The 10-time NHRA national event winner and 1994 U.S. Nationals champion, known as somewhat of a maverick over his six-decade career, reacted directly.

Australian Grubnic's misfortune became the good fortune of Lawrenceburg's J.R. Todd, who was tapped to drive Kalitta Motorsports' special edition Bounty Hunter Top Fuel dragster the very next day.

Todd, 32, with six career wins and the 2006 NHRA rookie of the year award under his belt, qualified 11th for Sunday's eliminations at Vegas, racing to the quarterfinals.
