Norton won player of the week honors for this week in 1999 with five homers total (only know that because it was on the scoreboard yesterday when he came up for the DRays). :D:

Good stuff Lip, I was just wondering why you post these a day ahead of time?

It always makes me think I'm going crazy or something.

Just in case any of the mainstream media is reading (and they often do) posting them 24 hours ahead of time gives them a window should they choose to do a story or try to get some quotes from someone about a historical event.
