Jim: Funny 1911 analysis of Glenville's 9-1 drubbing of Columbia
No doubt in Jim's mind that this is the funniest analysis ever
Click on headline for complete story.
These two completely unrelated items appeared on the front page of the May 3, 1911 editon of the News:
On a lighter note, this may be the funniest post-game analysis I've ever read:
The graded school nine of [Columbia] went to Glenville last Saturday [April 29th], expecting to have an easy time wiping up the club at that place, but they made a miscalculation. Glenville boys were in fine trim and when the game closed the score stood 9 to 1 in favor of Glenville.
The feature of the game was Edwin Cravens’ pitching.< BR>
When the boys returned home a News man met Lee Flowers, who played left field. He was asked what was the matter with the school team. "Well I will just tell you. The Glenville club had a man in the box who could pitch South paw, North paw, East and West, that is what was the matter."
And then there was this from that same front page.
"The washing of cuspidors at the public well is strictly prohibited by the Board of Health. Carry them to the branch."
