What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
If you aren’t familiar with this concept, a “Blog-A-Thon” is essentially a collection of bloggers who write about a particular topic at a certain time. Think of it as a blogging version of a “pot-luck dinner;” everybody contributes something and in return gets to enjoy and comment on the works of others. I’ve become a huge fan of blog-a-thons, and I look forward to being part of as many of them as I can.
Having said that, here’s a list of blog-a-thons in which Dubsism is proud to have been included in 2019:
Dubsism’s Contribution: Casino, 1995
Dubsism’s Contribution: Sweet Charity, 1969 and Midway, 1976

The “Send In The Marines” Blog-A-Thon: November 10th is a special day for all U.S. Marines as it marks the anniversary of the founding of the Marine Corps in 1775.
