She had no idea who Larry Bird was and thought it was a type of fowl that she'd never heard of before. Everyone else got a good laugh.
Now every time I see or hear Larry Bird, I think of that story.
I recently came across a Larry Bird baseball card. Yes, you heard correctly...a Larry Bird baseball card. It's a promo card from 1994 Ted Williams featuring Bird playing baseball at Indiana State.
I also got these two other promo cards from the 1994 Ted Williams set.
These came from a 15/$1 box and I picked up 6 of each, so if you're interested in any of these let me know.
