Happy birthday, rcade. Mine was last sunday (yeah, Easter Sunday). For some odd reason, I didn't really get to enjoy mine too much.

Happy birthday, dear popesquatter! (p.s. wingnut, was this you?)

Happy birthday! What!?! I have to wait eight more years until I can wear my leopard-skin mankini? I hope it will still fit.

Happy birthday, rcade. Here's to many more.

lbb, that was too funny! Oh, and that is not me in the bunny suit...

Jesus, you're old.

Ah....40. I remember it like it was nine years ago. Happy Birthday, rcade.

Happy Birthday, rcade!

Ah....40. I remember it like it is 15 years in my future. Sorry had to rub my youth in your face old man. Have a happy birfday.

Thanks. I went to Jackie Robinson Ballpark in Daytona to see the Cubs play. I was hoping to get to run the basepaths as a birthday boy, but I need to be mindful of my hip.

Ah yes, 40 years. In 1967 I was just finished with 2 years in the army and settling into my very first "real" job. Now here I am, still with the same employer, reduced to reading SpoFi for entertainment. rcade, congratulations on making it to the big 4-0. Just remember, buddy, it's all downhill from here, so enjoy the slide. Thanks for your work with SpoFi; it's your present to all of us.

Happy Belated B-day, rcade!! 40 isn't bad. I think 50 is when the warranty expires! Hope you had a good one.

Thanks for all your inspired postings rcade, and here's to many more.

Well done Rogers. You'd still be one of the younger ones in our over 35s league.

I am going to be 40 this year. I've never had a run-in with the vatican. I don't run a wildly successful sports blog. I've never even been sued. I hope your having a good birthday, rcade, because it's depressing the hell out of me.

I'm surprised by some of your ages. I was way off with my assumptions.

posted by jerseygirl at 12:16 PM on April 15

Totally. Anyway, back to Pokemon reruns.

No, I was right about you being 11.

posted by jerseygirl at 07:31 PM on April 15

Yes, at least we can write young. Has anyone seen my crayons? Give it! Give it!

Age is overrated.

Age is overrated. Try Thoreau's "Grey hair does not confer wisdom." Sounds more mature.

Wait, what? You mean Taylor Hicks ISN'T a wise sage masquerading as a soulful bluesman?

Wisdom is overrated. I traded mine for a pair of size 12 Heelys from FAO Schwartz.

Second childhood.

Hooray! Spofi Is Back! Best wishes rcade.

Best wishes for many more.

Happy Birthday! Look on the bright side. You're only, what, three years (?) older than Greg Oden - and he's going number 1.

Happy (belated) Birthday.

I traded mine for a pair of size 12 Heelys from FAO Schwartz. Nice. I had a kid wearing those crash into me recently at a restaurant. It was like roller derby. Thank God for my layers of protective blubber.

Happy (belated) Birthday. (Sung in my best Marilyn Monroe imitation)...

Age is overrated. You may be right.

Some people are just idiots.

Try Thoreau's "Grey hair does not confer wisdom." Sounds more mature. Very nice. See also: "Grayskull does not confer manliness." -- Skeletor

Just wanted to say Congratulations as well RCade. I've been 39 for six years now and guess Ill stay here until I pass the growd-up test and get promoted to my 40's. There are some nice perks that come with being 40+

Happy birthday Rogers, without whom sportsfilter would probably have celebrated its last long ago.

posted by justgary at 06:44 PM on April 18

There are some nice perks that come with being 40+ You're not kidding. I can now do that metal ball clacking thing with my testicles. I love middle age!

posted by rcade at 09:34 AM on April 19

Happy belated birthday rcade, I hope it was the best one yet. How is the big 4-0 I still have 8 more to go until then? Ha Ha Ha.
