My birthday pals

with 4 comments

According to Wikipedia, there were four notable people born on the same day as me, 22 September 1970: rapper Mystikal, footballer Emmanuel Petit, baseball player Mike Matheny, and actor Rupert Penry-Jones.

Here are some of the things that they’ve done, that I wish I’d done:
Scored a goal in the World Cup final.
Had a 12-year Major League Baseball career.
Had a US number one album.
Dated Kylie Minogue.

Here’s some of the things I’ve done that come closest to what they have done:
Scored a goal for Manor Leas junior school team.
Played softball in Berlin’s mixed softball league.
Bought several US number one albums.
Dated a girl with the same initials as Kylie Minogue.

Still, it’s not all a list of poor substitutes (no offence, Kate); at least I’m not in Louisiana State Penitentiary for sexual battery and extortion like Mystikal is.

  1. Crikey. If he shakes his ass in there, he’d better watch himself.

    Ha ha!

    Okay, maybe it’s not so funny if you actually are in prison. Sorry everyone in prison.

  2. This post caught my interest as I was born three years and one day later. Not one famous person listed for 9/23/73. Ah well.

  3. In Louisiana, Angola is also known as The Ponderosa. Or, if you’re a James Booker fan, you might say Mystikal is “partyin’ at the Ponderosa.” I hope this tidbit will win you a million dollars one day.

  4. I share my birthday with Lee Harvey Oswald, Paul Chuckle and Robbie Savage.

    Something to ponder.
