As you may have read in the paper, Hammerin' Hank Aaron's birthday is today, February 5. The original #44 will certainly go down as one of the best baseball players of all time. Just as an anecdote, not only was he baseball's home run king for a long stretch, he has a higher lifetime batting average than Pete Rose, baseball's all-time hit king.
This is probably more appropriate for my "25 Random Things" on my facebook page (which I haven't done yet) but Hank has always been one of my favorite players as he and I share the same birthday. That's right, your favorite blogger turns 44 today.
