The Urban Cowboy soundtrack, featuring Kenny Rogers, Anne Murray, Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee, went platinum!
Great music from a GREAT movie!
In one of the more bizarre episodes in baseball history, in a game against the New York Yankees, a home run by Kansas City Royals’ George Brett was actually taken away! Why? Not because the ball went foul, but because he had too much pine tar on the handle of his bat!
WHAT?! That stuff enhances grip, not distance!
Here, watch George go bat-stuff crazy!!
After this home run was taken away, they actually lost to the Yankees, 4-3, BUT, the home run was later reinstated, and the Royals officially won 5-4!
Steven Spielberg’s epic World War II film Saving Private Ryan opened in theaters.
What a fantastic movie!
After having survived testicular cancer, legendary cyclist Lance Armstrong won a record-setting seventh consecutive Tour de France and then announced his retirement from the sport.
No matter one’s opinion of the man, or how he may have had help in winning them, to actually go out and win seven Tour De France titles is very impressive! Go Lance!
and then lastly…
July 24 is National Tequila Day!
Don’t forget the salt and the lime! Ole! Ole!
