Today's Events: 4/28/11


April 28th, when Muhammad Ali refused to be inducted into the army and was thereupon stripped of his boxing title (1967), when Charles de Gaulle resigned as the president of France (1969) and the birthdays of three beautiful people: Jessica Alba (1981), Penelope Cruz (1974), and Shreveport, Louisiana’s Hal Sutton (1958), Golf Magazine’s 1980 College Player of the Year, and a top-10 ranker in the Official Golf Rankings (1986-1987). That would be enough for us to be proud of, if it weren’t for today's Hornets holdin’ down the Hive, and a  Pre-Jazz fest celebration to bring the BayouWear out in full fierce force:


Today's Events: 4/11/11


April 11th, the day that the Treaty of Fontainebleau ended the War of the Sixth Coalition against Napoleon (1814), the launch of Apollo 13 (1970), the creation of Apple 1, Vincent Gallo’s birth (1962), Kurt Vonnegut Jr’s death (2007), and the most boring day of the year since 1900.

 

Well, New Orleans says boring no more for 4/11 in ‘11, and fills out this Monday with enriching opportunities for the taking.
