Happy Birthday, Sleek

I will maintain to my deathbed that the Ducks' recent Stanley Cup victory can be attributed to several factors: skill, experience, effort, and of course luck. And while I cannot take any credit for the first three, unfortunately I take way too much credit for the fourth (and not just because of my lucky green shirt).

You see, I've always felt disproportionately lucky because of my lucky birthdate: 7/11/77. I'm no numerologist, but this date feels awfully special:
  • It rhymes.
  • The numbers all feel lucky.
  • And it's even multiplicatively sound.
So if you're inspired tonight, why not pour yourself a glass of your favorite cocktail, raise it to the heavens, and take a drink for the lucky S.O.B. named Earl Sleek, who hits the ripe old age of 30 today.
And as always, Go Ducks.

Happy Birthday, Sleek. A bottle of Canadian-made brew is being raised in your honor this evening.

In honor of your birthday I will stop feuding for the day. Of course, the day's kind of over, but it's the thought that counts right?

Hope it was a good one and GO TIGERS! ;)

Happy Birthday Sleek! You look so young, I bet you get carded a lot (not that 30 is old, or anything...) :P

happy belated Earl...

a bit of an FYI in case you are out and about today.
The Cup is currently sitting in a backstage area of Disneyland where they are allowing Cast Members to get photos and whatnot. But the big thing is that the Cup will be making it's way into the park at some point to the new Finding Nemo Submarine attraction for a ride. Media is apparently covering this event... but don't know which members of the media.
Wife went into work 5 hours early just to get photos of the Cup. Will let you know where you can see them once she returns my camera to me tonight.

No word on whether or not it will be anywhere else in Disneyland or DCA today... waiting on text messages from the wife on that news.

ok... wife just called. The Cup did the ride on the Finding Nemo attraction first and then went backstage for photos and meet-n-greets with Kunitz. She has photos of the Cup... with the Cup... and with Kunitz. Will post them up later tonight when she brings the camera back home.
