Default The Happy Birthday thread

One of my sporting heroes and the man behind my username celebrated his 50th birthday on November 30th (it still is in the USA). It also happens to be the 25th anniversary of the famous MNF game in Seattle with the Boz, when Bo ran for 221 yds and 3 TDs and his iconic "He may not stop till Tacoma" 91 yd TD down the Tunnel in the Kingdome. A two sport superstar and icon was born that night, Nov 30 1987.

Feel free to add the birthday of current NFL players and former stars each day.

Happy 19th birthday Jacksonville.

Like most 19 year-olds they are still learning their way in life and have a hangover every Sunday.

Whatever you do don't mention London or Los Angeles. I mentioned it once but I think I got away with it.

Happy Birthday Larry Brown!

In 1995 you earned Super Bowl MVP honors by intercepting two wayward passes from Neil O'Donnell. You must have looked like a Steeler receiver because you didn't have to move and were covering your zone with no Pittsburgh receiver in sight!

After your huge game, the Raiders were convinved you must be the greatest CB in the game...and awarded you a huge (at the time) free agent contract (at five-years, $12.5 million.)

One problem, you were a zone corner who got lucky in the Super Bowl and you struggled to earn playing time in an Oakland secondary that used primarily man-to-man coverage. In 12 games over two seasons you intercepted one pass (which was one less, than your Super Bowl MVP performance) and were released and re-signed by the Cowboys in 1998 for your last season in the NFL.

So Happy Birthday, and don't forget to send old Neil a thank you card.

Happy 41st Birthday man-tears.



On November 30th, 1971 - ABC-TV first aired arguably the greatest football movie ever made - "Brian's Song" about Chicago Bears' Brian Picolo and his friendship with Gale Sayers.
