Five Things You Need To Know for Friday, June 26th, 2020:

1.  The full version of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" is a feminist song about a woman who wants to go on a date to a baseball game, not a movie.

2.  When JFK was single in 1941, he dated a journalist named Inga Arvad . . . who was one of Hitler's personal guests at the 1936 Olympics.

3.  "Led Zeppelin 4" is the fifth-best selling album in U.S. history, with 23 million copies sold . . . but it was never number one on the Billboard charts.  It peaked at number two.

4.  The longest golf hole in the world is a 1,100-yard hole in South Korea.  It's a par seven . . . and if you managed to get a hole-in-one, that would be called a phoenix.  If you did it in two shots, that would be called an ostrich.

5.  The U.S.A. Patriot Act is actually an acronym . . . and a REAL clunky and forced one at that.  It stands for "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act."
