Today’s question: In 1985, during the Eastern Conference series against the Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics were leading 3 games to 1. A fan in the stands told Celtics legend Larry Bird: “See you next Friday” (for game 6 back in Philly). What did Bird shoot back?
Yesterday’s answer: The Giants’ 2010 season culminated into a World Series appearance against the first-time appearing Texas Rangers. Game one pitted two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum against Cliff Lee. Along with Mark Lowe and cash, the Mariners gave up Lee for Blake Beavan, Josh Lueke, Matthew Lawson and Justin Smoak. The Giants won game one 11-7. Lowe also pitched in the series and had an ERA of 67.50
