    Birthdays: 11/25

    Reds:

    Jim Duffalo (76) -When the Reds traded Bill Henry to the Giants for Jim, the Cincinnati Enquirer headline read "Henry Shuffles Off For Duffalo", which you have to admit is pretty clever.

    Others:

    Nick Swisher (31) -Looks skyward every at bat in tribute to his grandparents, who raised him. Married to actress Joanna Garcia, which IMHO is a pretty good deal for Nick.

    Mark Whiten (45) September 7, 1993...That's all I have to say.

    Bucky Dent (60) -Former Reds bench coach, more famous for some home run he hit sometime. Co-starred in the 1979 made-for-TV movie "Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders" as Jane Seymour's boyfriend.

    Joe Dimaggio -If Edskin's wife delivers today, Junior will have the same birthday as the Yankee Clipper. The day after DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak ended, he started another 17-game streak.

    Few people realize what an incredibly strange man he was. He kept like hundreds of thousands of dollars in garbage bags throughout his house.

    Congrats, Edskin!!! Now, don't put too much pressure on the boy to hit in 56 consecutive major league games. Make sure he knows tht anything above 40 is perfectly acceptable...

    By the way, more cool people Sam shares a birthday with:

    John Kennedy Jr.
    John Larroquette
    Ben Stein
    Ricardo Montalban

    So, happy one-year birthday to little 'Swattin' Sam'.

    How's he doing by this time, Edskin? Happy and healthy, we hope.

    He is a rampaging beast....and I mean that in the best way possible. Healthy, happy, and keeps us on our toes. He isn't all that big, but he is an absolute eating machine...he is a trash compactor...we are shocked at how he will eat anything at anytime and never seems to get full. He is a horrible sleeper, as he seems to view the whole process as interfering with his daily plans, but other than that, he is pretty much perfect. Thanks for thinking of him!
