M. R. James (1862-1936) is maybe most sensible remembered as a author of chilling ghost tales, yet he was once a very good pupil of medieval literature and palaeography, who served either as Provost of King's collage, Cambridge, and as Director of the Fitzwilliam Museum, and lots of of his tales replicate his educational heritage.

Opening Day for the Yankees in 1929 was set for Tuesday, April 16, with the Boston Red Sox furnishing the opposition, but the game was canceled by rain. The teams were rained out the next day, too. Finally, on Thursday, April 18, the teams got a chance to play, although the day was cold and gray. The Yanks won, 73, with Ruth and Gehrig hitting homers. No team in baseball was better than the Yankees during this time. They had captured three straight American League pennants and won the World Series in 1927 and 1928.

300 hitter in the major leagues. Once he had accepted that fact, he decided to return to the Bulls. Jordan had worn No. 45, his original favorite, during the summer he spent with the Birmingham Barons. When he went back to the Bulls in mid-March 1995, he shunned his old No. 23 in favor of No. 45. Jordan's comeback was not immediately successful. There were times he flashed his old magic, but mostly he looked rusty and in the late stages of games sometimes appeared winded. One of Jordan's most dismal performances came in the first game of the Eastern Conference semifinals, which the Bulls lost to the Orlando Magic.

If the past is any guide to the future, it could be the team whose quarterback wears No. 12. Through the years, No. 12 wearers have accounted for nine Super Bowl triumphs. Winning quarterbacks who have worn No. 12 include Terry Bradshaw of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bob Griese of the Miami Dolphins, Ken Stabler of the Oakland Raiders, and Joe Namath of the New York Jets. Quarterback Jack Thompson of the Cincinnati Bengals was another No. 12 involved in a Super Bowl. He was a member of the Bengal squad that faced the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XVI.
