The Most Wonderful Day Of The Year
Hey, it’s my birthday today! Me, Sergei Federov, Jamie Foxx, Steve Buscemi, Ted Nugent, Dick Van Dyke, Pope Sixtus V, and the immortal Jewgeni Petrow (no, I don’t know either) will be celebrating today, but probably not together.
Everybody loves their birthday, but mine’s been quite a significant day the last few years. In 2000, this was the day that Al Gore finally conceded and George W. ascended to the presidency. In 2003, this was the day that Saddam Hussein was dug out of his hole. And today will see the release of the Mitchell Report blowing the whistle on dozens of steroid-using baseball players. Man, now that I think about it, lots of people have reasons to hate my birthday. Sorry, folks…cake’s on me.
