Well today’s blog will be a short because I don’t have much time today but hopefully it will interest anyone who reads it.
Let me start by telling you the importance of today, July 2nd. Basically this is the middle of the year. Congratulations everyone we are half way through 2011! One more year and everyone will be up in hoopla about the world ending again (hopefully everyone knows about the 2012 predictions of the world ending, if not go and watch the terrible film 2012).
But let’s not focus on all that. Let me just give you a quick list of pop culture happenings on this date.
Well the only guy I found interesting that died on July 2nd was James Stewart. I hope some of you know who is. Here is a quick picture.
He is most famous for starring in It’s A Wonderful Life and the Alfred Hitchcock film Vertigo. Really great actor in his time. He was named the third greatest male star of all time by the American Film Institute
Well the births are not too exceptional on today’s date. Lindsey Lohan was born today (bleh). She needs to get her shit together so she can just disappear all the together because the only reason she is still famous is because she still get messed up like this.
One birthday I do like that happened today was the birth of Bret “The Hitman” Hart. One of the great wrestlers from awhile ago that I used to watch all the time when I was a kid. Let’s give a quick stat line of what The Hitman has accomplished.
4x WCW United States Heavyweight Champion
2x WCW World Heavyweight Champion
1x WCW World Tag Team Champion
1x WWE United States Champion
5x WWF Champion
2x WWF Intercontinental Champion
2x WWF Tag Team Champion
2x King of the Rings
1994 Royal Rumble Winner
Second Triple Crown Champion
WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2006
That’s pretty awesome for only one guy. Given he accomplished all this because he was a great showman and everyone really liked him. Here is a quick clip of him facing my favorite wrestler HBK.
