Random Question

Do you remember where you were when Steve Pearce hit two walk-off grand slams in the same week?

Bonus questions:

What team does Steve Pearce play for?

What position does he play?

And, if you consider yourself to be a good baseball fan and don't know about what Pearce accomplished or who he is, console yourself because you are not alone.  Many who had savant-like knowledge decades ago have succumbed to a few basic principles -- 1) so much is written down and available by the few clicks of a smart phone, why memorize it and 2) so much information is going through your head -- precisely because that information is available -- that you don't begin to know facts that you would have thought were foundational decades ago.  Ergo. . . why you might be drawing a blank on Steve Pearce. 

But congratulations should go to Pearce nonetheless -- what he did was quite an accomplishment.

For whatever team he plays for and at whatever position he plays.

nice writing! But as for me question is not useful. Maybe try more?
