    I think you gentlemen are missing a key element in celebrating b-days, but I get the sentiment.

    Happy 100th b-day, Joe!!!

    no they didn't, don't know where you heard that. Maybe some did but by and large he was a great, great hero. No one has ever pleased everyone.

    My first "Sports Hero". Kids in 8th grade thought I was weird for having a sports hero that has been dead for years.

    happy birthday champ
