Jackie Robinson takes us home

This has been an interesting week, what with the pirate rescues and coast-to-coast tea-bagging — and let us not forget the Yankees getting blown out in their first ever game at the new Yankee Stadium, how sweet it was, and Hulk Hogan threatening to slit the throat of his ex-wife on national television (more or less) — but it was an interesting week in history, too.

Two days ago in 1912 the Titanic sank, and on that same date 35 years later, Jackie Robinson debuted for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Why not end the week on that happy note? Check out this video of Jackie stealing home during game one of the 1955 World Series, which the Dodgers went on to win in seven games. They beat the Yankees (who lost their first official came in their new ballpark yesterday — did I mention that already?).
