It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were welcoming in 2012, and here we are, after surviving the ‘end’ of the world, ushering in 2013.

This is the time of the year when sportswriters who cannot come up with something original, dredge up historical facts and memories to fill a column and show off. Boy, I’m in a great holiday mood, aren’t I? Being no different in some ways than other sportswriters, I, too, will play the Great American Past-time.
