Happy belated Birthday to John Elway. Can you believe this guy is gaining on 50? He turned 47 yesterday and seemed to be lost in the shadow of sharing a birthday with KSK in the blogging world (they did have quite the party going).
Elway kind of seems ageless to me. It would not shock me a bit if he were still playing. I think that is because he was there for a majority of my football youth and into adulthood. I remember the first time I seen Elway on TV. He was leading this great comeback. No…not The Drive bu a great comeback nonetheless to this kid in small town Iowa sitting in his room. They were playing the Seahawks. I also remember it as the first time I seen a QB throw the ball out of bounds because I was wondering what that was about…turns out he was stopping the clock.
Anyway, Happy Birthday John! Here is a fitting tribute video that The Sports Guru posted at Milehighreport.com
