Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (1/24/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, January 24th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The “middle finger” has been an obscene gesture for around 2,500 YEARS.  The ancient Greeks developed it as a “phallic gesture,” although at the time it was more of “a joke, an insult, or a sexual proposition” than the aggressive, offensive (“eff you”) tone that it has today.
  2. John Elway didn’t just play football.  He pitched and played right field when he was at Stanford.  The New York Yankees drafted him in the second round of the 1981 draft.  That was five spots AHEAD of Tony Gwynn, and he’s in the Baseball Hall of Fame.  Elway got $150,000 for playing for a Yankees minor league team, but then he decided to go to the NFL.
  3. There are only two countries in South America that are totally landlocked: Bolivia and Paraguay.  Every other country touches an ocean.
  4. Erik Estrada didn’t have a motorcycle license when he was on “CHiPs”.
  5. Dick Cheney’s Labrador was banned from Camp David for attacking George W. Bush’s Scottish terrier.

Be sure to share these 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ with your family, friends & coworkers at some point today!
