May 25, 2017By Patrick Moran

Happy Birthday to former SNL star and long-time comedic actor Mike Myers, who turns 53 today. I’m in the minority here, but I’ve never been a big Myers fan.

May 23, 2017By Patrick Moran

Happy Birthday to former middleweight boxing legend “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler, who turns 63 today.  Hagler against my boxing idol, Sugar Ray Leonard in 1987 may be my favorite fight of all-time. I’ll never forget watching with a group of friends entirely divided on who to root for. The fight was close it resulted in mass … Read More
