Not a lot going on today, as has been historically the case on May 14. Some highlights, courtesy of some other site:
1874 – McGill University and Harvard met at Cambridge, MA, for the first college football game to charge admission.
1897 – “The Stars and Stripes Forever” by John Phillip Sousa was performed for the first time. It was at a ceremony where a statue of George Washington was unveiled.
1998 – The Associated Press marked its 150th anniversary. (NOTE: No word on if the AP was also FOUNDED on this day…)
1998 – The final episode of the TV series “Seinfeld” aired after nine years on NBC.
So, feel free to talk about all this and more, right here in your open thread for the evening!
