DiMaggio's streak was 56 games, not 57. Now I can finally say I corrected Ken Jennings. /bucketlist

Ugh, I read that through at least twice and never even caught it. I wonder if I was brainwashed by the story about Heinz ketchup wanting to do a big deal with Joe if he got to game 57.

Thank you!

Was losing on number 57 enough to get him the deal?

Good rule to live by. Always end your streak on something marketable.
