  • Happy birthday, Jesse

    Today would have been the 100th birthday of Olympic athlete Jesse Owens. Owens was a man who deserves to be remembered not only for his on-field accomplishments, but for the fact that he humiliated Hitler on his home-field. Rest in peace, Jesse.

      The German athlete he beat actually became good friends with him. Sadly, the German athlete was KIA in North Africa as a Gefreiter in 1943.
