Did you know that comedy legend LOU COSTELLO of "Abbott & Costello" fame was born this day in 1906 in Paterson, New Jersey?. Perfect timing, too, as baseball's pre-season is underway. The clever "Who's on First?" skit will tickle the funny bones of countless generations yet to come. It didn't occur within his short life, but when the Los Angeles Dodgers signed a player with the last name of HU several years ago, and he reached first base, sportscasters and fans were ecstatic that HU was indeed on first.
