2 of my really good friends and I all share the same birthday. We have a pretty big shindig every year. This year is cabrewing then back to one guy's house to burn some wood and drink our faces off. There will be live music and couch burning too.

Me and my sister share a birthday (obviously) and my dad's is the 16th so we usually have a little get together every year.
We are having a big pool party this Saturday... looks like the monsoon will be over by then so that's good.
The year we turned 21, my dad was turning 50 so that was a pretty big party.

That sounds awesome! At one time the party included 8 of us that had the same birthday, but people have moved and moved on with their lives. We still have a pretty good turn out. Last year we had close to 100 people with us.

Sheesh.... 8 people?
Didn't realize my birthday was that popular.
Fun fact - I had my 13th birthday on July the 13th. It was also Friday the 13th.
If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all.

I've got you one better, I turned 13 on Friday the 13th, and got paid $13.13 for one week of work as I had just started a week earlier with a paper route.

Call it what you want UNA, but it was 1990, and the little bit that the Dispatch paid someone for a 100 house route, minus taxes, and also taking out "equipment fees" which was for a crappy canvas bag with a low tech reflector and a bag of 1000 rubber bands, it's what it came out to.

That many 13's is hard to believe.

Yikes... bad luck

So were we literally born on the same day??
Will you be 25 this Saturday?

No, I'm considerably older. And the whole 13 thing has always been good luck for me.

If you're not following Carl on Twitter you are missing out.  During football season he gives links to his stone cold lock of the century of the week which is freaking hilarious.

Happy Day coach!
It's also my wedding anniversary, so I'll be silently toasting to you and the Buckeyes as well at dinner tonight.  Silently, so my wife doesn't kick me in the shin under the table.

Happy birthday coach!  Hopefully next year at this time when you hit the big 5-0, you'll have ring #3.

"Is there going to be cake?"

Just say no to italics abuse.

Simple. Yet effective.
Well done Sir.

I am doing the Marilyn Monroe birthday song and strip for Urban and Arizona buckeye. (You know that photo of Bert in swim trunks? Imagine that but with a buckeye thong.) 

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

Urban and I were born in the same hospital(Mercy Hospital in Toledo), in the same year. Except I was born in September, a few weeks after him.
Happy Birthday, Urban.
