Much has changed in world since Spurs lost
By DJ Gallo
The world is a far different place since the Spurs suffered their most recent loss 40 days ago.
The Spurs have not lost a game since April 11, 2012. The world was a very different place back then. It’s hard to even remember those days. But let's try anyway.
Take a trip down memory lane with us and see if you can remember these 11 things that were true about this planet way back then.
A player by the name of Albert Pujols was considered to be the premier hitter in baseball.
Newt Gingrich was running for president.
Jack Quinn was the oldest pitcher to have won a Major League Baseball game.
Tupac had not performed in more than 15 years.
There was no playoff system at the highest level of college football. In fact, the championship game was determined solely by a computer.
Secret Service Agent was one of the most respected jobs in America.
The Philadelphia Flyers were the favorites to win the Stanley Cup.
Nicolas Sarkozy was president of France.
John Beck and Jonathan Crompton were the youngest quarterbacks on the Redskins’ roster.
Facebook was a privately owned company run by a hoodie-wearing single guy.
The Charlotte Bobcats were just three and a half weeks removed from a win.
Wow. What an amazing time capsule of information. I'm going to ask my grandparents to tell me more about what life was life back then. Yay for history!
