What’s So Special About July 9th?

Kind of a big day throughout history.

1) July 9, 1810 – Napoleon officially makes Holland part of his empire. Greedy French bastard. But, you do gotta admit, he was probably the last Frenchman with balls.

2) July 9, 1850 – Millard Fillmore becomes the 13th President of the United States. And we have HIM to thank for California. Surfs Up, Dude.

3) July 9, 1967 – Chicago White Sox lose a double header to Minnesota. Hmmm – maybe THAT’S why T1G’s such a big Sox fan. You know, that whole underdog thing… and it did take forever for them to actually WIN a World Series.

Famous Births

* July 9, 1819 – Elias Howe, inventor of the sewing machine.

* July 9, 1932 – Donald Rumsfeld, inventor of Kung Fu.

* July 9, 1952 – John Tesh inventor of the factoid, and one of T1G’s favorite musicians.

AND… drum roll please

* July 9, 1967 – That 1 Guy, inventor of Drunken Wisdom!

In honor of this very special day in history – all bloggers should get together to offer suggestions on how T1G can celebrate his 39th birthday. If you have your own blog, feel free to post your suggestions there, then send a trackback to this post and/or leave a permalink in the comments.

Check out the trackbacks & links, but be aware that they’re probably not all “safe for work”.

Happy Birthday T1G! Enjoy!!!!
