...that happened in 2016. With all the RIP threads going on I decided we needed a positive 2016 thread so we can discuss some good things that happened this year. Whether it happened to you personally or something that made you happy and forget about life for a minute.
For me, in March air landed what's turned out to be the best job I've ever had and it's been a joy going to worm from day 1. Also I have to say the Cubs winning the world series is THE highlight of 2016.

"CLEVELAND! THIS IS FOR YOU!"
Felt like I saw one of the greatest sports moments ever live as it happened.
No pictures, no gimmicks
Magic's list of people he's f***ing with rn: John Cena (Da God) Rey Mysterio (Living Legend) Handsome Rusev (New Japan, strap him up) R-Truth (He saves every segment he's in) Charlotte (The Queen) Hiroshi Tanahashi (Da God of NJPW) Bandido (Mans is too nice) Ricky Starks (Stroke Daddy)
Watching Punk lose was funny. And I'm a fan. Lots of good flicks. Spider-Man in a Marvel flick. Politics were hilarious this year and I'll leave it at that LaLa Land Kevin Owens won the WWE title So did Finn Balor. I got to go to Lucha Underground twice. Smackdown doesn't suck anymore.

Apparently, the hole in the ozone layer is finally starting to shrink.
On a personal level, I already mentioned that before but finally moving out of my parents' house and generally being more productive is a huge morale boost. I even went to the movies more often than usual and only hated one of them. Also, lots of great video games this year, hot damn. I definitely feel like the industry has been improving again in the last few years.

DC kicked Marvel's ass virtually all year with Rebirth. The classic pre-flashpoint Superman and Lois became the lead versions of the characters, and were joined by a kid. We got a new Spider-Man book about him being married to MJ and being a dad. The ASM Newspaper Strip had a damn amusing Doctor Strange storyline through the summer I liked a Marvel movie (Civil War) I liked a Disney Star Wars movie (Rogue One) Zootopia Roman Reigns crashed and burned yet again Bret Hart vs Seth Rollins kept me highly entertained all summer Smackdown became the A-show after years of mediocrity Ditto The Miz Found a new favourite all-you-can-eat restuarant in Glasgow's Silverburn. Went there multiple times in the year, as well as for my birthday and the week before Christmas I've kept in touch with my best gal pal after a few months of being out of the loop with her (we didn't fall out or anything, I just couldn't find things to talk over with her, she usually helps me out when I'm down, and I did'nt feel that down)
I saw Bruce Springsteen in concert--twice! And one of those shows was the very first stop on his tour.
I traveled to Ireland and England. Always wanted to go there.
My brother got married.
TNA provided us with one memorable blunder after another. From moving to a warehouse next to a junkyard, to losing its business license, to Impact being replaced with a commercial loop thanks to technical issues with Pop, to seemingly everyone and his mother suing the company. TNA was truly a gift that kept on giving.

RAW got WAY better after the split. I moved out. Gojira, Metallica and Anthrax put out AWESOME albums. Conor McGregor established himself as one of the all-time best in UFC history. WrestleMania was good for the first time since 2008. Roman Reigns had a good year (would have been better if not for the Wellness violation).

- My wife left me (this turned out to be awesome actually, I didn't realize just how horrible she was until I didn't have to deal with her anymore) - New Metallica! - New Star Wars! - DC Comics stopped sucking - AJ Styles came to WWE and is having a great World Championship run (he's my favorite wrestler) - Civil War was pretty cool - I thought I was going to have to get rid of my dog, but he's still with me - IDW Transformers comics continue to kick ass
