Drobnjak's Manjaks

Embarrassingly enough I was looking through old posts because I was ecstatic I had any comments at all and wanted to see if I had missed some from earlier. Apparently I also missed posting some things. This bad boy was scheduled to run on February 23 of this year, and it's especially vintage because it even features a "This Day in History." So, please treat this post as if today is February 23 and not virtually six months later. Thanks!

Veteran NBA journeyman Predrag Drobnjak retired this week, and I am shocked that I did not know about his website sooner. Here's the link to possibly one of the best sites of all-time. I don't know what the greatest part is: perhaps his Robert de Niro impersonations. Or maybe it's his smack-talk ("Your skills smells like rotten soup"). Or his advice to children. Actually, you know what? It's all amazing, so check it out.

I'd also like to give a big shoutout to the entire nation of the Philippines. You guys have been keeping my readership up, even though I've been lackluster in the quantity of posts lately. I would say quality as well, but that's usually lackluster. Anyway, thanks for your attentive eyes and I will continue to post, hopefully more frequently.

This Day in History
1861- Abraham Lincoln avoids an assassination attempt. He would not be so fortunate a little more than four years later.

1940- Folk singer Woody Guthrie writes "This Land is Your Land." Catchy tune!

1945- The American flag is raised on Iwo Jima.

1954- Children receive the first polio vaccine.
