More of Colonel Sanders has been found, and it looks like his remains will end up in Koshien Stadium. And Randy Bass, who turns 55 today (Happy Birthday!) seems thrilled.

"I've been back to Japan every year since I retired in 1988 and on every trip it's always been 'The Curse of Colonel' that the fans feel has held the team back," Bass said. "Now that they’ve found the Colonel, the curse is over, and it’s time to put your money on the Tigers. It’s history for the Tigers to find the Colonel, and it great for the fans"
