Quick Cards 2.

Originally I was going to post a list of 25 things about me. I will be doing that later. I am a slow typist and it was taking me longer to do than I wanted to spend on it today. Monday is the day where as soon as I get off at Wal-Mart I head for Taco Bell so naturally I am a little tired. I also am rapidly approaching my 200th post and I am going to do something special for that.

This card is another of Upper Deck's Yankee Stadium cards. I love the picture here. 1944 was not one of the Yankees better years. They had a largely no name team because of the war. They finished third in the American League, 6 games behind the St. Louis Browns. That was the Browns only pennant in St Louis, although they had more success after moving to Baltimore in 1954. This card represents the game played on September 16 when the Philadelphia Athletics beat the Yankees 6-3. I now have almost 100 of these cards. Someone has put the entire set together and he will get his own baseball card in the 2009 Upper Deck set. If I get that card I will scan and post it.
Jeff, Travis, and Mike all answered correctly, France did indeed give us the Statue Of Liberty.
Today's question is Grade 3/Social Studies.

Today is Groundhog Day. In what state does famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil look for his shadow?

Incidentally, if Phil is correct we get 6 more weeks of winter. I got this one and am now 20-7.
