I guess I'll post the DBD again. Since this is last minute you'll only get a story about Hitler's Oak Trees.
U.S. track star Jesse Owens made history at the 1936 Berlin Olympics 75 years ago, when he destroyed Adolf Hitler's myth of Aryan supremacy by winning four gold medals. But his feat also set in motion a decades-old mystery, about a unique gift Owens and other Olympic champions received from Hitler.
In 1936, the German Olympic Committee gave athletes an oak sapling for each gold medal they won. The U.S. team received 24 such saplings; Owens came home with four of them. One of Owens' trees towers over Rhodes High School in Cleveland, where he trained. There is no plaque marking it, but track coach Tyrone Owens says it has long been a source of pride.
"Several track coaches have sent champions down to the state meet over the last 70, 80 years," he says. "And we always have taken pictures when the kid places down state, underneath this tree."
Enjoy the day people.
