Great Scott!

Some people have their Star Wars, some have their... I don't know Matrix, some have X-Files.  As Nikka Costa once sang-

EVERYBODY GOT THEIR SOMETHING.  (FYI, personally I liked Like A Feather much better, but still liked Nikka Costa overall).

My something among other things is Back To The Future.  Today if you have been deluged into it enough is Back To The Future Day, the day Marty, Jennifer, and Doc go into the future.  So among the millions of other posts you'll see today I have two planned.  This is the first of the two, and this one is more sports and card specific.

Today I thought I would show famous Scott's.  One of the more famous lines in BTTF is Doc saying "Great Scott" so here are some Great (or pretty good) Scott's.






 How about other sports too?  There are Great Scott's in other sports too.


 I alway's liked Scott Fujita, and also was a fan of Scott Skiles too.

There is some racing Scott's too.  There are a lot, but I settled on three.


 Then there are some wrestler's included in Great Scott's.


 Hey, yo!  I really wanted a card of Razor Ramon, but couldn't find one on Trading Card Database, so I took one from one of my favorite sets, the WCW Topps Embossed set.  Same for Scott Norton.  The Scott Steiner card I actually have so I used that one.  Scott Stanford does sports at one of the New York City TV stations, I forget which one, maybe WPIX.  I watched him a couple times on Live Stream once interviewing Jim Bruerer and his love of the New York Mets.

I have no other direction to take this so I might as well stop it here, but I plan to have another post later today with more stuff related to Back To The Future.  Thanks for reading and have a great (SCOTT) day.

I always though Scott Speed was the best name for a race car driver I'd ever heard. Too bad he didn't really amount to much in the NASCAR world.

I tried to get my nephews into NASCAR for a while and pushed home the fact Scott Speed had the best name, so I hoped he'd do well. I have a few of his cards.

I'd kinda forgotten that Scott Norton existed in WCW ... but he was awesome during his time. Always been a big Scott Steiner fan as well.

PS: Just came across your blog today, good stuff! I'm adding you to the blogroll.
