We all love Garth Brooks, but did you know that he is a darn good baseball player, or that he once turned down the chance to add "movie actor" to his resume?

In honor of Garth Brooks coming to Milwaukee, Wisconsin on September 25 and 26, I went on a search for some fun Garth info that I never knew, and I came across this list from mentalfloss.com. My personal favorite is number one about how Garth met his first wife, Sandy. Here is what he had to say about their first meeting:

“My job was to escort people out that caused disturbances,” Brooks recalled. “She beat me about nine times close to hell that night, too. I finally got her outside and I just kept noticing how cute she was … I asked her out. She told me to drop dead.”
