Rick had his best W-L percentage as an Indian going 35-24 in 2+ seasons.

  1. Shtarker, zis is KAOS! Ve don't blog here!!!!

    I didn't watch the videos, so forgive me if I'm repeating, but Hirschfeld often hid his daughter Nina's name in his drawings. If you look at the Sesame Street drawing, there's a 9 after "HIRSCHFELD"; that means there are 9 NINA's in in the drawing (often hidden in the hair, from my experience).
