  • German Fernandez: Time Warper

    The T&FN High School Records show German Fernandez as an interesting time traveller. He appears to have taken 8 days to run 35.57 seconds!

      It happens sometimes. People just explode. Natural causes.

        Too much hot , spicy and delicious Mexican food can do that to a guy ...

        Which is why Canadians invented beer, of course.

          indicating he had warped the time-space continuum and gone backwards in time, then we'd have a headline!

            I think he got stuck in a black hole like the Romulans did when chasing Spock in the last Star Trek!

              That concept frightened Marvin Barnes once, when he was with the St. Louis Spirits of the old ABA:

              "On the bright side, he did give us some laughs. Most notable was when Barnes said one of the most hilarious things I have ever heard from an athlete. When he was in the ABA, he apparently still hadn't grasped the concept of time zones. The team had a flight scheduled to leave Louisville at 8:00 am and arrive in St Louis at 7:59 am. This totally freaked Marvin out, and he said that he did not want to board the flight because 'I ain't goin' on no time machine.' "

                was that before or after he became Marvin "Tire Iron" Barnes?

                (the preceding story, by the way, is a Bob Costas staple, since he witnessed it firsthand)

                  According to this article, the tire iron incident occurred in 1972.

                  He entered the ABA in 1974.
