Happy Birthday Ace

Twenty-five years ago today, the world got a bit more Jewish, as Ace Cowboy, spurs and all, came jangling out into the world. That's right, Ace turns 25 today and I hope you'll all join me in wishing our favorite cowboy a very happy birthday.

How big a day was June 22, 1979? Big enough that Ace's birth on Long Island created huge backups on the L.I.E. Sure, the papers and the liberal media blamed a gas shortage but people were actually getting out of their cars for a look at the gleaming bright light mysteriously emanating from Jericho.

How big a day was June 22, 1979? Well, let's just say big enough that the State of Alaska Epidemiology Department issued the now-classic Bulletin No. 12, "Lederle Tine for Tuberculosis Screening." Coughing and comsumption are down 25% in Alaska since 6/22/79. Hot Stuff, huh Ace?

How big a day was June 22, 1979? So big that heavyweight chamption and all-around buffoon, Larry Holmes, KO'd some punching bag named Mike Weaver to retain his title. No confirmation to the rumor that Ace's dad skipped the birth to attend the fight.

Alright, let's be honest. Not much happened that day. But at least I have someone to write with. Happy Birthday Ace!
