    Happy Birthday Bo Jackson, He's 50 Today

    OK, I realize he's one of the bad guys.

    But we DID recruit him as the late Ken Donahue said. And Bo was something else altogether. He was a truly phenomenal athlete and he also overcame a stuttering problem to become a productive member of society.

    I hate Auburn, but I've always loved the abilities of Bo Jackson. (Incidentally - today is also the anniversary of Van Tiffin's kick).


    RTR
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again

    Only a few people in the world have the ability to remember everything. I'm one of them. Pick any day of my life, and I can tell you what I saw or heard.

    The best example of "hands off" parenting was Darth Vader.

    Not only is Bo Jackson the best college athlete I ever saw play a sport, but he is pure class. His ride across Alabama helped my community personally. My son also got to shake his hand. It's too sad the only two Heisman winners my son has met personally have been Bo and Pat Sullivan (Boy Scout fundraiser).

    I went to high school with Bo. He is one of the good guys. He just played for the dark side.

    Happy Fitty Bo!
    Bo has an AFN (Armed Forces Network) commercial this year and at the end of it he is saying goodby to everyone and ends with..."Watch your six!"
    Best wishes Bo.

    When Bo runs the wrong way now, he can just blame it on bad eyesight or bad... ... what was I saying again?

    Well, happy birthday to ol' Bo. Ya gotta respect talent like that when it comes along; it sure is rare.

    Bo was great but Herchel was better. Happy Birthday Bo.

    Anyone remember after the 1985 Iron bowl the score t-shirts said..."Happy Birthday Bo, from Van Tiffin's toe" I've still got that t-shirt that was my fathers. RTR!!

    Bo is the greatest college football player I ever saw live & in person. I was there when he went the wrong way, but I was also there when he dropped ~275 yds on us in the Iron Bowl. I also saw him flatten out a baseball in our baseball stadium. We were giving him a hard time about going toward 3rd instead 1st (etc.) after the wrong-way game, and he just crushed one. Dang near cleared the centerfield light post. And a hush fell over the crowd...*grin*

    Of course, I also thoroughly enjoyed watching him make America laugh at & feel sorry for Brian Bosworth in the NFL...

    BTW, who said 50 is old? Just wait for all these morning meds to kick in & I'll...wait, what were we talking about?
