Matty’s love of checkers is weird, cool, and keeps popping up in the newspapers of his day.

"Checkers" was their name for beating up Irishmen.

Tim Bogar is the Rangers' new bench coach.

Not the same guy who used to play bass with Vanilla Fudge.

Cecil Upshaw should be a Reggie Cleveland All-Star.

For real, I always thought he was Willie's older brother.

For 2/35! More than I thought he'd get.
