Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Thursday, April 13th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The “fist bump” was first popularized by Fred Carter, a high-energy NBA player from the 1970s.  He played for the Baltimore Bullets, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Milwaukee Bucks.
  2. Cockroaches are repulsed by human beings.  If they come into contact with one, they run away, hide, and try to wash themselves off.
  3. The word “trophy” comes from the Greek word “tropaion” – which referred to body parts that soldiers would cut off in battle to celebrate their victories.
  4. The only state with two Federal Reserve banks is Missouri.  They’re in Kansas City and St. Louis.
  5. When NBC wanted Al Michaels to be their play-by-play announcer for “Sunday Night Football”, he was under contract with ABC.  ABC is owned by Disney, and they agreed to let him go, if NBC would give them the rights to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.  That’s an early character Walt Disney drew in the 1920s, and NBC had the rights.  So they made the deal.

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