According to Brad Keefauver (Sherlock Peoria), February 6 is the date on which "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter" begins. The adventure begins with an enigmatic telegram, which reads:
Please await me. Terrible misfortune. Right wing three-quarter missing; indispensable to morrow.—OVERTON.
The "three-quarter" referred to in the title is a player on a rugby team. Godfrey Staunton is missing, and Sherlock Holmes, despite his lack of expertise in the real of "amateur sport" is on the case to find him. You can read the story (and listen to it) HERE.
