January 1. The Reds to my knowledge have never even thought of playing a game on my birthday. I share a birthday with Edmund Burke and Betsy Ross. Also, Verne Troyer (Mini Me) was born the same day and year as me.
September 28, 1988. Orel Hershiser breaks the consecutive scoreless innings record on the day I was born. Off of the top of my head, the only famous person I share a birthday with is Hilary Duff, who is exactly a year older than me.
Oh yeah, and the Chicago White Sox, behind Jerry Reuss, defeat Charlie Hough and the Texas Rangers in Chicago on the day I was born!

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
On the day I was born, the nurses all gathered around. They gazed in wide wonder at the joy they had found.
