Don't Confuse Me with the Facts

Concerning Deion Sanders, some guy Paul tweeted "sometimes it gets forgotten that he played in the World Series and nfl game on same day". I had to point out his error.

I found a nice explanation in the LA Times saying how stories like Deion's get exaggerated over time. It was the 1992 NLCS, not the World Series. Deion had doubled the night before, but didn't get in the Sunday baseball game after playing for the Falcons the next day. I linked the article.

Last night he responded: "he suited up. he was on the roster of two diff teams in two diff sports on same day. that was the point". That's not what he said, but I won't argue with him any more.
