Happy Bday Darrell Green
Who's to say Darrell couldn't run down Seattle Slew?
Happy birthday Darrell Green...Darrell turns 50 today. What can I say about this HOF player and person? A NFL record 20 seasons with 1 team, our team. I am totally convinced this guy could shutdown 75% of the WR's in the NFL, right now! At the age of 40 Darrell was still the fastest guy on the Redskins roster and he's been threatening on Twitter for months to run it again on his 50th...my money says he runs a sub 4.5. Happy 50th Mr. Green and thanks for the memories.
Happy birthday Patrick Ramsey. Patrick played 4 seasons for the Redskins from 2002-05. #11 appeared in 34 games at QB, going 10-14 as a starter. Patrick threw for 5,649 yards and 34 TD's during his Redskins tenure. Patrick was a 1st round draft pick out of Tulane, hand picked by Spurrier, Snyder or was it Cerrato? A lot of finger pointing on that one. Patrick is currently playing for the Lions. Happy 31st Mr. Ramsey.
Happy birthday Brig Owens. Brig played all 12 of his NFL seasons with the Redskins from 1966-77. #23 appeared in 158 games and intercepted 36 balls during his career. Brig is one of the 70 Greatest Redskins. In retirement Brig finished law school and went to work for the NFL Players Association. Happy 67th Mr. Owens.
(WARNING! STRONG LANGUAGE)
Happy birthday Terry Crowley. Terry played 12 seasons for the Orioles from 1969-82. Terry has also served another 15 years as the Orioles batting coach. Terry batted .253 with 40 HR's and 194 RBI's during his O's tenure. The beauty of Terry's birthday is that it allows me to play Earl Weaver's Manager's Corner. Earl gives a better description of Terry than I ever could. Happy 63rd (he's looked 63 for 20 years) Mr. Crowley.
Cheers and Hail
