"Wait a minute, isn't it someone else's birthday too?"
Yes. It is.
Here are the lucky few who share their July 31st birthday with Korked Bats:
Our very own Frank Ford's favorite athlete of all time. Tim is arguably the greatest quarterback from the University of Kentucky all time. However, his stint in the pros was about as short as Dean Cain's time in the Hollywood spotlight. We just wish we could share his wife instead of share his birthday.
Oh gosh. Wouldn't you know it, right after we make fun of the guy, he ends up on our list. But (Ripley's) believe it or not, he too has a July 31st birthday. Forget Shaq, Dwight Howard, Christopher Reeves, and that kid from Smallville... Dean Cain was the best Superman!
Gee, the amount of A list celebrities that share their birthday with us just keeps getting bigger. First Dean Cain and now Wesley Snipes?! Gah, how lucky are we?! Although, we do enjoy the movie The Fan a lot.
Anyone outside the states of Missouri and Kansas probably aren't too aware of Mr. Quantrill. However, he is probably the main guy behind one of the most hatred filled rivalries in college sports. This rivalry dates back to the Civil War when both Kansas and Missouri would attack each other's towns and things would get pretty ugly. Long story short, William Quantrill took his Missouri "Tigers" into Lawrence, Kansas and burned the city to the ground. As a Mizzou guy, I must wish Quantrill a very happy birthday!
Wait... You mean Joaquin Pheonix?
Save the best for last! Gus is currently a free agent. And we want to know why?! Any NFL team that is looking to win Super Bowl XLIV, you better pick him up!
