Today in History


Taking a moment out of the fun times I wanted to do a little self-congratulations; today is the one-year anniversary of the Slanch Report!

When I got into the blogging game, I knew I was in for a wild ride. The crazed groupies, the wild parties, the drugs, it all really happens, the sheer fame I’ve received from this blog has been amazing. Now, when I walk into my living room everyone there knows my name, I’m FAMOUS!

Our first post, revealing some of the prophecies in the epic cinema piece Independence Day, took the world by storm, and since then, I have done my damnedest to bring you some of the best, most interesting sports stories and interesting news. I hope you’ve enjoyed it.

Thank you so much to everyone who has read and enjoyed the Slanch Report, I hope you keep coming back and don’t forget to tell your friends. Please keep up the comments and the let’s keep the conversations going, got an opinion on anything I write, let everyone know, think my grammar sucks? Throw a comment out there. Together we can make this the best blog on the internet.

    Let me be the first to thank you for amusing me (and all the other readers) for the past year. The slanch report has been a daily read for the past 365, so thanks!

    now, more;

    dopplegangers, baseball, hotgirls, and such… oh and more accidents, like people getting their legs crushed, or some kid ice skating, and then he falls through the ice or something and you title it “pond hockeyyyyyikes!!”.

    I’ve got nothing… but YOU ALWAYS DO! THANKS AGAIN, SLANCH REPORT!

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE! AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND PASS THIS ALONG!
