Blow Out the Candles October 1

Hall of Famer Rod Carew is celebrating his 67th birthday today.

"Hitting is an art, but not an exact science."
"The way they dress here (California), your head is always in the stands. All those bikinis, your eyes get tired."

Actor Tom Bosley was born in Chicago, Illinois on this date in 1927.
Of course, Tom is best known for his role as "Mr.C.", Howard Cunningham, on the 1970's sitcom, Happy Days.

  1. Don't forget that Rod Carew gets one of the most epic shout outs in music history (and I aint talking about Adam Sandler):
