Gordie Howe; there's an athlete that die-hard Simpsons fans would recognize. When Bart responds to his teacher's personal ad in a third season episode, the picture he supplies is that of Gordie Howe. Of course, Bart calls himself "Woodrow" after President Woodrow Wilson.

Nope, you're just fast.

Personally, I'm one of those who normally finds out these things later.

Bill Davidson, 86, was owner of the NBA's Detroit Pistons and the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning. He was the only owner to have won both an NBA title and an NHL Stanley Cup in the same year, 2004.

^ I checked out that story because I couldn't imagine how someone could get that badly hurt on a beginner's slope. It turns out she didn't even know she had an injury until an hour later.

Life is fragile... :(
