Adam Reisinger, the creator of AdamReisinger.com, turns 30 on May 17, 2010. As part of the countdown to his 30th birthday, AdamReisinger.com looks back on May 17th each year since 1980.
My 26th birthday. A good day for me. A less good day for Paul McCartney, who announced he and his wife Heather Mills were formally separating. They got divorced two years later. McCartney still had a better May 17, 2006 than Eric Forth, a member of British Parliament who died that day.
I did not die that day, instead having an awesome day in which I got the above piece of Mary Jane Watson artwork from PooZ. No matter how many MJ sketches I get, this one will always have a spot on my wall.
There was one slightly non-awesome part of the 17th on 2006, and that was the Mets losing 1-0 to the Cardinals. That kind of set the stage for the 2006 NLCS, where the Mets lost to the Cardinals in 7 games. Why didn't he swing?
Oh, and for the first time in my life, LeBron James played a game on my birthday. LeBron scored 32 points and the Cavs beat the Pistons to take a 3-2 lead in their series, but they ended up losing in 7 games.
