Happy Birthday Leap Year Babies!

February 29, 2008

Ofcourse the web offers us many wonderful things, but in honor of today, there’s LeapZine, which made compiling my ‘ode to Leapies’ shockingly easy. And an effective way to avoid packing at all costs. From my research, I’ve been able to devise two very interesting consistancies…

Leap babies are athletic freaks of nature:

1972 Fabien Bownes, NFL wide receiver for the Chicago Bears
1972 Chris Devine, Allentown, Pennsylvania, diver 1996 Olympics—- and local!
1968 Bryce Paup, NFL linebacker, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills
1968 Cary Conklin, NFL quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers
1968 Chucky Brown, NBA forward, Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks
1964 Henrik Sundstrom, Sweden, tennis star
1980 Simon Gagne, Canadian Hockey player, NHL player (Philly Flyers) who has been an all-star

but also spiritual:

1468 Paul III, last Renaissance pope, 1534-49
1468 Pope Paul III, Italian Clergyman

O – bonus fact. They like stamps.

Elsewhere in my world, things are good – we’re totally heading off on vacation this weekend. It’s our “domestic” year, so we’re going to San Diego, very much in the continental US, as oppose to anywhere incredibly exotic, but I’m so excited to spend some real time on the other coast. And no, we’re not going to the zoo.
