HOT POCKETS APPRECIATION DAY
Satchel Paige 1906
Paige did not enter the Major Leagues until 1948, making him around 42 years old when he started. This made him the oldest rookie in the history of baseball.
Paige once asked, “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”
*How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? As I type this I am 46 but don’t feel a day over 45. Regardless, I am hoping to change my life through 365DOLF, and hopefully you are too.
Lisa Leslie 1972 – squats while brushing your teeth
“My favorite workout involves an electric toothbrush and whole lot of squats. If you get an electric toothbrush it usually runs for two minutes [and] you do four quadrants of your mouth. While at the same time, you can do your squats. So I do my squats probably for a minute, which gets me about 50 squats in a minute and then I do leg lifts and raises for the other minute. That pretty much gets my teeth cleaned and my butt toned.”
*Tone your butt while brushing your teeth. This is a suggestion that you should do today and carry on doing it every day.
Theodore McCarrick 1930
The day before a newly elected Pope Francis was to be formally installed at the Vatican in 2013, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was celebrating Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica when he passed out at the altar and had to be rushed to the hospital.
“I guess the Lord isn’t done with me yet,” he told the pope.
“Or the devil doesn’t have your accommodations ready!” Francis shot back with a laugh.
*Does the Lord still need you to live or is the devil getting your accommodations ready?
Otto Frederick Rohwedder 1880
When sliced bread hit the market, American consumers weren’t sure just how great it was. On July 7, in 1928, a bakery in Chillicothe, Mo., was the first to sell pre-cut bread using Otto Frederick Rohwedder’s invention: the automatic bread-slicing machine.
*What can you invent that is the best thing since sliced bread?
Ringo Starr 1940
“Ultimately what’s most impressive about Ringo Starr isn’t what he’s been, but rather who he is,” wrote Rolling Stone rock critic David Wild. “The man’s great heart and soul, his wit and wisdom.” Indeed, his music has always emanated from his warmth, humor, and exceptional skill, manifesting in songs we know and love: With A Little Help From My Friends, Don’t Pass Me By, Octopus’ Garden, Photograph, It Don’t Come Easy, Back Off Boogaloo, You’re Sixteen (You’re Beautiful and You’re Mine), Don’t Go Where the Road Don’t Go, The No No Song, and Never Without You, to name a few.
*Listen to Ringo and The Beatles today, all day.
Jim Gaffigan 1966 – Hot Pockets
Jim Gaffigan’s best Hot Pocket punchlines
“I saw a commercial for a chicken pot pie Hot Pocket. Now they’re just messing with us. It’s just a matter of time before, ‘Have you tried the hot pocket Hot Pocket? It’s a Hot Pocket filled with a Hot Pocket. It tastes just like a Hot Pocket!'”
*See if you can have a breakfast Hot Pocket for breakfast, a lean Hot Pocket for lunch, and a chicken pot pie Hot Pocket for dinner.
