Adam’s Fun Facts: Samuel L. Jackson, The World Series, Elvis & More!

By Adam Alexander

How many times has The World Series played a best of 9?  What was Samuel Jackson’s wig supposed to be in the movie, “Pulp Fiction”?  How many concerts did Elvis have outside of the United States?  All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. The World Series has been a best-of-nine four times: 1903, 1919, 1920, and 1921. The goal was to generate more revenue by having more games. (Wikipedia)

2. Elvis only held three concerts outside of the U.S. in his entire career. They were all in Canada in 1957. (Wikipedia)

3. The closest distance between the U.S. and Africa is 3,154 miles from Quoddy Head, Maine to El Beddouza, Morocco. That’s about 200 miles less than going from the same spot in Maine to San Diego. (Science Alert)

4. Samuel L. Jackson was supposed to have a giant Afro in “Pulp Fiction” but the production assistant who went to get him a wig didn’t know the difference between an afro and a Jheri curl. (E! Online)

5. In The Muppet Movie (1979) Jim Henson spent an entire day in a 50-gallon steel drum submerged in a pond for the opening scene of Kermit the Frog in the swamp. (IMDb)
