Yesterday was July 23, 2009.
It might not mean much to you, unless you are a fan of fish and chips (the birthday of Arthur Treacher), or a fan of odd sidekicks (the birthday of Calvin DeForest, aka "Larry "Bud" Melman"), or a fan of obnoxious radio hosts (the birthday of Don Imus).
It might not mean that much to you, unless you are a baseball fan (the anniversary of the establishment of the Cincinnati Reds baseball club), a lover of ice cream (the anniversary of the creation of the ice cream cone), or a Beatles fan (the anniversary of "Help" being released in the UK).
But there is meaning in yesterday's passing. With it, we have crossed the half-way point from the Game 7 loss to the Penguins to close the 2008-2009 season and Opening Night in Boston to open the 2009-2010 campaign.
Chins up, campers... it won't be long now.
