It's Tuesday, Dec. 12, Gingerbread House Day. Happy birthday and do-be-do-be-do to Old Blue Eyes Frank Sinatra (1915-1998). Today in 1965, Chicago Bears rookie Gale Sayers set an NFL record when he scored six touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers. University of Kansas sensation Sayers was drafted by both the Bears (old NFL) and the Kansas City Chiefs of the upstart AFL, but chose the Bears. It should be mostly sunny with a high in the mid 40s. Listen to Old Blue Eyes' albums while making a gingerbread house:
