It’s that time of the week again.  Shemon and Sheppard Wednesday Wisdom Fun Facts for 10/26 at 5:30pm.  Most of you know by now that this is one of our most fun segments of the week.  I try to find the most amusing and entertaining fun facts that you will enjoy.  They are not all family friendly at times I will admit but for the most part it’s fun for all ages.

These little tid-bits of information, sometimes useless information, can be very stimulating to the mind.  I have an expert research team of Minions who work on these Fun Facts 24/7.  And they work for free!  I try to give them certain themes from time to time but generally they do a great job on their own.

Here are some sports related Wednesday Wisdom Fun Facts you might enjoy from this day!
