Honus Wagner. Simple. (To those of us who love the game.)

Norman, nice job. Of course, you are correct!

well, when I saw the image I immediately thought baseball...looked up Ty Cobb and saw it wasn't him, then looked at the comments. Honus, of course! Silly me, paint me a dummy again.

At first glance, my 13 year old son said, "Oh, that's Honus Wagner." Amazing what minds can store when an interest is there.

Michael, sounds like you were on the right track!

Jules, yes, it's amazing how proficient minds can be when there is an interest in learning. The schools always talk about how to raise test scores but they want to raise them in all the boring subjects. If they just taught subjects like sports, video games, movie trivia, and pop music, I'm sure we'd see our test scores jump.
