Happy Birthday Brooks Robinson!

Former Baltimore Orioles great, Brooks Robinson celebrated his 72nd birthday today, according to a story on the radio station I was listening to this afternoon, 100.7 FM.

They also said that Brooks announced at a speaking engagement last week that he's been battling prostrate cancer and has endured 39 treatments. Just like Brooksie, he's probably really uncomfortable but you'll never know it.

Best wishes to Brooks and thanks for all the great memories you gave us for 26 years, each with a single season contract, not these big bucks long term deals the kids are signing today.

We'll all pray for you, Brooks!
