Rex news from the world of sports


On February 11, the sports radio and ESPN guy Jim Rome started interviewing guests named Rex everyday on his show. He says he didn’t realize it was a streak until he received a text message on day three. Last week, on March 11, when he hit the 20th Rex, an astronaut named Rex Walheim, he declared the streak over. Because Jim Rome has such a loyal following, there’s a list of all the Rexes he interviewed.

Sidenote: I failed to run into blogger/hipster Rex Sorgatz at SXSW and so therefore did *not* get one of our Rexes in Texas photos like these from 2005 and 2007.
