O.J. Simpson is questioned by parole board member wearing a Chiefs tie


O.J. Simpson was granted parole at a hearing stemming from a kidnapping and armed robbery conviction in 2008 took place on Thursday in Nevada. However, before the decision, one thing stuck out that made everybody forget about the hearing taking place, even for a moment.

As he told the Kansas City Star, Endel wore the tie for his friends watching at home, and not Simpson.

It was one of those little things I figured someone might spot from Kansas City, he said. But I didn’t realize it was going to blow up that much. It’s crazy now.

May 26, 1959: When the Pirates’ Harvey Haddix was perfect for 12 innings, then lost


When discussing impressive baseball things that will never happen again, Harvey Haddix’s pitching performance on May 26, 1959, isn’t usually among the first things that come to mind. But it should be.

Fifty-eight years ago today, the Pirates’ lefty was perfect for 12 innings against the Braves, the defending National League champs, whose lineup included Hall of Famers Eddie Mathews and Hank Aaron. Think about that. A perfect game for 12 innings. Thirty-six up, thirty six down.

Equally noteworthy: The reason Haddix was still pitching in the 12th inning is because the Braves’ Lew Burdette had held the Pirates scoreless for 12 innings. A pitchers’ duel in the truest sense.

The Braves’ first base runner came in the top of the 13th, when Felix Mantilla reached on a error by Pirates third baseman Dan Hoak. Mathews then sacrificed Mantilla to second. Haddix then intentionally walked Aaron to set up a double play. A good strategy, of course, but baseball is often cruel. And cruel it was.
