I'm sure glad today's not my birthday...

1991 Upper Deck #670 Bryce Paup RC

There's only one thing worse than sharing your birthday with Jesus. That's when your birthday falls on Leap Day.

Bryce Paup was drafted in the 6th round of the 1990 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers and within two years became an effective, pass rushing linebacker. During his five seasons with the Packers he started 41 games and had 32.5 sacks, 4 interceptions, 8 forced fumbles, 1 safety, and made the Pro Bowl once.

In 1995, he signed with the Buffalo Bills, had the best season of his career, and was the AP Defensive Player of the Year. After eleven seasons in the NFL, Paup retired with 75 career sacks and 4 trips to Honolulu.

Today, Paup is celebrating 44 years of life for only the 12th time on his actual birthday. Hopefully his family and friends make sure it's 4x better than an ordinary birthday party.

Happy Birthday Bryce!

Happy Leap Day everyone else... and until my next post... sayonara!
