I remember reading news stories about Whitey Bulger while he was still on the most wanted list. They were saying that he had been spotted in this place and that place, and that he had traveled to London at some point. I honestly thought that they would never find him.

Everyone thought that André Villas-Boas was going to be the next Mourinho because he was young, Portuguese and had done well with Porto. He also had no playing experience. It didn't take long before those predictions fell apart.

Take me back to June 22, 2011

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

It is Wednesday, June 22, 2011. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Cancer. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

The summer of 2011 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "Rolling In The Deep" by Adele is at the top of the singles charts, while "Changed The Way You Kissed Me" by Example is the number-one song in the UK. Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie Green Lantern is at the top of the box office.

David Cameron is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are continuing to close their doors at the moment. Sadly, it seems as though they will be unable to compete with online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. People are using pre-made comics called "Rage Comics" to share funny and relatable experiences.

It's 2011, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Adele, Maroon 5, LMFAO, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Bruno Mars. Anti-government protests are taking place in cities across Syria. A civil war is raging on in Libya. Large battles are taking place between Colonel Gaddafi's government forces and Libyan rebels, who are being supported by NATO.

There is a strange new fad called "planking", which involves a person lying face down in an unusual location. The ongoing trial of Casey Anthony for the murder her 2-year-old daughter Caylee is receiving widespread attention on social media. A blackhat hacking group called "LulzSec" is receiving a lot of attention following a number of high-profile attacks on companies such as Sony.

An Advice Animal meme called "Good Guy Greg" is beginning to take off in popularity. A riot has broken out in Vancouver, Canada, following the Vancouver Canucks defeat against the Boston Bruins in ice hockey. A photo of a couple kissing on the ground while riot police stand around them is going viral. Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner has announced his intention to resign from Congress following revelations that he sent explicit photographs to a woman on Twitter and then lied about it.

Tributes are pouring in following the news that Jackass member Ryan Dunn has been killed in a car crash at the age of 34. People are stunned by the news that fugitive Whitey Bulger has finally been arrested in Santa Monica, California, after 16 years of being on the run. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Betty Ford, Roberts Blossom, Amy Winehouse, and Zyzz would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "The Royle Family", "Desperate Housewives", "How I Met Your Mother", and "Eureka". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Farmville", "Fallout: New Vegas", "Call of Duty: Black Ops", and "Duke Nukem Forever". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "LazyTown", "Go, Diego, Go!", "Ben 10", and "Curious George".

Popular toys at the moment include the Xbox 360, Roboraptor, the iPad, and Moxie Girlz Art-titude Dolls.
