Mother-in-Law Day and the Statue of Liberty

A number of the Usual Suspects declare today Mother-in-Law Day.

We'll let you at home decide whether Mother-in-Law Day belongs in the same category as Grouches Day, Sourest Day, and Cranky Co-Workers' Day. (Be careful where you vocalize any conclusions you might reach in this regard).

It was also on this day in 1886 that President Grover Cleveland dedicated the Statue of Liberty. For this reason, some of the Usual Suspects consider today Statue of Liberty Day.

In addition, today marks the anniversary of the first college football game to be broadcast across the country on radio. The year was 1922, and the Princeton Tigers had traveled to the Midwest to play the University of Chicago Maroons. Princeton won. Unfortunately, we do not know if either team ran the Statue of Liberty play that day.
