Back to Back

Back to back. B2B.This weeks topic comes to us from Maris.

Now what - you may ask -  does this song have to do with the topic? It's Blake  Shelton's 14th consecutive number one  record. That's back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back. I am not the world's biggest country fan but that is still quite impressive.

Barrack Obama won back to back presidential elections as did Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Ronald Reagan and other two-term presidents.

2 grand slams in back to back at bats in an inning. accomplished by Fernando Tatis, St. Louis Cardinals, April 23, 1999 - now that is impressive

Also in baseball a double header is back to back games between the same teams on the same day

One pitcher has thrown back to back no hitters in the history og MLB.

Baseball - with its myriad stats - is ripe for such trivia it seems.

I've been known to consume back to back beers on multiple occasions, as hard as that may be to believe. Ahem. I've also offended consecutive people on multiple occasions with back to back smart ass comment - again I am sure y'all find that hard to believe.

So there you have it - a bit of B2B trivia for future use. Time to check out my LBC brethren to see what they have to say. See ya next week - same bat time, same bat channel.


  1. Go Shelton
    Go Talis
    (Go Cards)
    Go Shackman- back to back great writing since I started reading you..
    (When are you going to finally publish your novel? A western? Love to read it.)

    1. It's not a western - its a mystery and its safe to say it will never see the lkight of day - LOL

  2. You are truly an incredible fellow with such a wide range of information. To say that I am impressed is an understatement.

    1. Useless trivial information is my stock and trade my friend.

  3. Your trivia is very entertaining, Chuck. Sooo, it can't be useless. Aaand, I don't believe you're a wiseacre.
