Happy Birthday Bo Jackson!!!

“Bo knows Birthdays”

46 of them to be exact.  That’s right, the great Bo Jackson turns 46 years old today.

Arguably the most exciting player in the major leagues over the last 30 years, Bo Jackson brought an enthusiasm to the game that baseball’s biggest stars couldn’t compare to.  Bo was not the best hitter, best fielder, or best base runner, but he was incredible to watch. 

For Bo’s birthday, I would love to give him a career that was injury free and strictly focused on baseball.  I in no way want to take away any of the ‘2-Sport’ phenomenon that Bo caused by playing baseball and football, I just want to see how good he could have become if he focused on just 1 sport.  He may not rank amongst the best of all-time, but his highlight reel would be worthy of that ranking!!!

Happy Birthday Bo!!!

  1. Talk about, “What if?”

    I think Bo’s numbers would have been outrageous if had not been injured.

    He was a blast from the past. I still enjoy collecting his cards today.

    Happy Birthday!
