Happy 50th Birthday, Jamie Moyer!
At Studious Metsimus, we tend to make fun of Jamie Moyer. We've written posts about him such as "Senior Citizens Appreciation Day" and "Rip Van Winkle Not Coming Back To The Phillies". Our fav'rit AARP member has been attacked because of his age quite a bit on this site, but today we'd like to be serious for a change and wish him a happy birthday.
You see, Jamie Moyer was born on November 18, 1962, meaning that today he is celebrating his 50th birthday.
Most middle-aged men spend their time watching reruns of Matlock. Jamie Moyer spends his time trying to hook up with a major league team. That has to commended. He also runs wild while raising the 12th Man flag for this blogger's fav'rit football team in the Pacific Northwest. Pretty cool for a non-Matlock watcher.
So even though it would be easy to make fun of a man who was the elder statesman of a team Mets fans love to hate (the Phillies when they were actually good a few years ago), today is the day to celebrate him on his birthday.
From this Mets fan, I'd like to wish Jamie Moyer a happy 50th birthday. I just hope he remembers to put his dentures in before he eats his cake.
