Didn't Steve Yeager once appear in Playgirl?

Somewhere I still have my Steve Stone-autographed program from his 1980 Cy Young season w/ the Orioles. I do not have a copy the July 1983 of Playgirl that he was naked in.

That's a good one. I thought it was just a list.

Top Ten makes sense, as does Fifty or a Hundred—our metric counting habits, after all. Forty always seemed an odd cut-off to me.

Yeah but 50 is just that much more work that the listmakers were NOT into.

Never knew that although I am much more comfortable with the #40 than #50. As someone who has some OCD 40 is a great number it is square and tidy and divisible lots of of ways. 50 is awkward and ugly.

35 is awkward and ugly for me, so in 15 years I can't see much difference.

Have I mentioned that I just learned that the lyrics to Blister in the Sun are "when I'm OUT walking, I strut my stuff..." and not "when I'M-A walking, I strut my stuff?" Because I just learned that.
