Four Questions For The History Books

Q. What is Dave wearing today?
A. Dave is wearing a pair of brown shorts and a blue striped shirt.

Q. How does Dave feel today?
A. Dave feels a lot healthier than he did yesterday. He crosses his fingers and says he hopes he's through the worst of the cold.

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave's mood today?
A. Dave is ecstatic because he'll soon go on vacation with Complementary Spouse Britt Shirley, and after that he starts his new career with PricewaterhouseCooopers. It would take rhino tranquilizers to wipe the smile off Dave's face right now.

Q. What sports landmark did Dave see yesterday?
A. Dave walked past the spot where, nearly 90 years ago, Babe Ruth hit his longest home run:

Babe Ruth plaque

This is one of Dave's favorite historical markers in Tampa because (a) it's a great reminder of this area's rich spring training legacy; and, (b) it means I'm about to visit Britt, as the marker is right in front of his office.
