First off, around these parts we don't say "birthday", we pronounce it as birfday. Why? I suppose it adds a bit of fun to the day, and isn't that what birfdays are supposed to be about?
Secondly, how did I not know it was Steve Garvey's birfday? Or Steve Carlton's or Connie Mack's?
For 364 out of 365 of you this isn't a big deal. But, I'm the 1 out of 365 who share a birfday with these great men in baseball's illustrious history.
And, it took a contest over at "garvey cey russell lopes" to educate me. Crazy.
So Happy Birfday, Steve Garvey!
1. GCRL is a fan of the Dodgers and I think this is the only card I own that features Mr. Garvey in Dodger blue.
2. This card is from the oldest set in my collection, the set that features the stats from the year I was born.
Thanks for teaching me something new on my birfday, GCRL!
