“Capital of the U.S., Michael Jordan and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”

 New York City was the capital of the U.S. during the first two years George Washington was president, and Philadelphia was the capital for the next six.  The capital wasn’t officially D.C. until three years after he was out of office.

Michael Jordan originally wanted to endorse Adidas, not Nike . . . but Adidas passed on signing him because the executives felt like he was too short to impress people.  He’s 6-foot-6, by the way . . . they wanted seven footers.

Mozart wrote the song Ah vous dirai-je, Maman . . . which became the tune for “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”“Baa, Baa, Black Sheep” and the “Alphabet Song”.
