20,000 Women Heard About Wilt's 100 Point Game

March 2nd was the 49th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game against the Knicks in 1962.

If you were one of the 38,000 people who claim to have seen the game or one of the million who saw it on television, send me a card.

Oh, wait a moment. The game was never televised and the little gym in Hershey, Pennsylvania only held about 4000 people.

Whew, for a moment there, I thought my mailbox was going to be inundated with cards.

However, if you're one of the 20,000 women Wilt entertained while describing his high point exploits, I do want to hear from you. 

Especially if you're lady number 9030. I've seen the notches on his headboard and notch number 9030 seems extremely significant. I'm not sure if it's the groove or the wiggly action in the scribing of the notch, but that particular notch seems to distinguish itself from the other notches. 

If this notch had it's own special night, like say the night of Passover, people would ask "Why is this Wilt Chamberlain conquest notch different from all other notches?"

If you haven't guessed, this article contains, as my Tulsa comedian friend Jay Dee likes to say "A butt load of numbers." We may set a Silliman on Sports record.

After all, you can't write a Wilt Chamberlain story without loads and loads of numbers, butt loads, in fact.

Check out our slide show. It has videos and numbers (there's that word again) of fun facts.
