What Does Big Papi & Olmec From Legends Of The Hidden Temple Have in Common?

They look superbly alike.

My buddy Goose pointed this out during yesterday's Red Sox game. It brought back fond memories of college when I had the baller cable package (that included Nickelodeon Gas) and got to watch Legends at 4 a.m., cross-eyed drunk.

By the way, the only team worth rooting for on Legends is the blue barracudas. Sure, I had friends who rooted for the green monkeys, the silver snakes...most of these people are in jail.

As it would have it, The Olmec were an ancient Pre-Columbian people living in the tropical lowlands of south-central Mexico, roughly in what are the modern-day states of Veracruz and Tabasco on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. (Via wikipedia).

Make some room in the old vault for that little knowledge nugget.

Ortiz went 0-2 with a walk in the Red Sox 5-1 loss to Oakland this morning. He's still looking for his first hit on the year.

Several classic Olmec quotes from LHT:

The choices are yours, and yours alone!

"Legends of the Hidden Temple!" with your guide, Kirk Fogg!

According to legend, if you drank from the fountain of youth, did you: see the future, become younger - ?

The player that conquers the most countries in sixty seconds, wins!

I bet Fogg still pulls.
