Interesting fact of the day

Did you know that basket ball was invented by James Naismith, a YMCA instructor based in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1891. He was told to invent a new game to enthuse a class of new YMCA recruits. The baskets were only an accident - he was looking for boxes but only peach baskets were available.
