Wednesday Procrastination: Today in History…

February 2nd, the second day of the second month. Today is a great day for any Bill Murray fan, but did you know some other really awesome stuff happened in history on this day too?

Did you know on Feb. 2nd… well, you’ll have to click “Read More” to find out.

… both the National League of Professional Baseball Clubs, more commonly the National League, as well as the ABA, the American Basketball Association were founded? While the ABA ceased to exist in 1976 when it merged with the NBA, it will always be the favorite in my heart. Who doesn’t love that funky patriotic basketball? For some interesting reading, check out the early history of the soon-to-be-former New Jersey Nets, who were founded as the New Jersey Americans, and originally played in the Armory in Teaneck, New Jersey. As for the National League, we all know its the better of the two leagues despite recent All-Star game results. As far as I am concerned, the DH is bullshit.

…1969, Boris Karloff died? While popular for his portrayal of Frankenstein, you probably best know him as the voice of the Grinch in the animated special, How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

b…1979, Sid Vicious, controversial bassist for the influential British punk band “The Sex Pistols” died? Vicious died of a heroin overdose in his girlfriend’s New York City apartment. In recent years the band has reunited along with the return of the original bassist, Glen Matlock.

Well, I kind of need to get back to work. Maybe you should too?

    His girlfriend must have gone above and beyond the call of duty to trigger a heroine overdose!
