Lou Gehrig didn’t like to call in sick. The New York Yankees legend didn’t miss a single game between June 1, 1925 and May 2, 1939. A stretch of 2,130 consecutive games, and a streak that would take nearly 60 years to topple. Not far from the Fieldston home where Gehrig spent his final years, another streak was starting. This wasn’t an amazing athlete never missing a game. Instead, it was (we hope) an amazing newspaper never missing a week.
