Today is day four of the September 19 Somethin’ Challenge. Are you playing along? Come on, all the big kids do it. It will make you popular.
Question number 4 is: Did you have a sports hero? Who was he or she and what was their sport?
The answer is, not really. I do remember following the Braves extra closely when Hank
Aaron was getting close to breaking Babe Ruth’s home run record. I was watching the game on television when he did. We were so proud when he finally broke it.

when I was on the team
I also remember watching David Pearson’s pit crew set a NASCAR record for the fastest full pit stop. I am not a NASCAR fan. In fact, I can get all my race watching done during the time another network is running a commercial. I hit the remote and find the race. After about a lap, I go back to the other channel.
As I understand it, and I don’t remember all the details, but Pearson’s crew completely refueled the car and changed all four tires in just over 13 seconds.
I can’t even figure out which end of the lug wrench to use in 13 seconds. So, for me that was amazing. The fact that Pearson was from Spartanburg and I was living in Spartanburg at the time made it more special.
So, have you joined the group? Are you playing the game?
See you again tomorrow.
