Happy Birthday Kevin Orie...
Orie played five seasons in the MLB with the Chicago Cubs and Florida Marlins. His best season was in 1997 when he hit .275, 100 hits, and 8 HR's, which was good enough to earn 11th place in NL ROY voting.
Happy Birthday Aaron Schobel...
Schobel is a two-time Pro Bowler, who played defensive end for the Buffalo Bills from 2002 to 2009. He has 78 career sacks, 14 of which came in 2006... the best season of his career.
Happy Birthday Clinton Portis...
Portis is currently an unsigned free agent, who has nine years of NFL experience under his belt, between two teams: the Denver Broncos & the Washington Redskins. He has rushed for nearly 10,000 yards (9,923 to be exact) and has score 80 touchdowns (75 rushing & 5 receiving) in his career. He was the 2002 NFL OROY and has been selected to two Pro Bowl rosters. Although he's never led the league in rushing, he has rushed for 1,500 yards or more three times and has broken the 1,000 yard mark six times.
He reportedly worked out with the Seattle Seahawks yesterday, but from what I've read it doesn't look like the Hawks will be signing him.
Well there you have it... three more additions to my Birthday PC. I now have autographs of eleven players born on September 1st. There are a few other players I've set my sights on... but I'm not in any rush... since I have 364 more days to pick them up.
What athletes do you share your birthday with?
One day left... until a nice three day weekend. Enjoy your Friday everyone... and sayonara!
