bingo-loverIt’s 5th of September 2009. Another Bingo Day is rising. I am sitting (as usual) in front of my computer and trying to find any interesting news about bingo. As I was searching for something new, an idea got into my Big Head.Surprised Why to search for new and not for things that happened in the past. I am in online bingo community for a little time and I’ve realized that most of us (bingo reviewers, reporters and what else we are called) we repeat ourselves… The same news…the same theories…the same strategies and tips…the same...the same…the same. I thought that it would be interesting to go some years back and see what was happening in bingo community. I didn’t make something magical. It was a thought and I put it in real time… I searched all major search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing to find out what happened at 5th of September, in the past. I went ten years back and I started reading the (old) news. Some of them are interesting and I thought to share them with you, my bingo friends.
