Chase Ortiz sacked Case Keenum late in the 4th quarter of the 2007 Texas Bowl, helping stop a Houston drive that threatened the Frogs' narrow lead.  This was the last of his 20.5 career sacks at TCU.

Image result for matt carpenter 2011

Matt Carpenter wore #19 during his 2011 call up to the Cardinals

 

Baseball-reference says Bryan Holaday wore #19 when he first got called up by the Tigers in 2012, but I find no photographic evidence of this.

Honestly, I never connected the dates of those two events

 

Old timers in the North End say the sidewalks still get sticky on hot days ...

Well, you would think, being that the explosion happened in January, it would have made it easier to clean up that mess after it cooled. At least it wasn't it July when it was stickier.

According to the Wikipedia entry on the Great Molasses Flood, the two events were possibly not unrelated ...

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Molasses_Flood

 

The tank had been filled to capacity only eight times since it was built a few years previously, putting the walls under an intermittent, cyclical load. Several authors say that the Purity Distilling Company was (or may have been) trying to outrace prohibition in the United States;[9][10][11] the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States was ratified the next day (January 16, 1919), and took effect one year later.[12]

Ah, of course the newspaper headline of the the Great Molasses Flood (heehee...they should have trademarked that) would have been the day after it happened back then. Duh. Anyway, greed gets you nowhere, as we see again.

I think the builder of the tank also used really cheap materials, beginning (continuing?) a great Boston tradition
