  1. Tinker to Evers to Chance. I like baseball; once upon a time I followed the Minnesota Twins pretty closely and I was a top cheerer during their World Series wins in ’87 and ’91. But that phrase, Tinker to Evers to Chance I found somewhere else . It’s one of those phrases that has stuck in my head like ‘Tippecanoe and Tyler Too.’ I read it in a book, perhaps Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella. It was just running through my head the other day, like a crawl on a marquee. Strange coincidence.
