Somehow I never knew this

Heard this one on Saturday but still can’t get over it.

(In the parlance of our times, “I was today years old when…)

This past Saturday would have been baseball legend Stan Musial’s 100th birthday. He was born in the small town of Donora, Pennsylvania, on November 21, 1920.

That was pretty cool to find out.

I looked into other celebrity birthdays.

Ken Griffey Jr. was turning 51.

That was cool. (Though a little disturbing to realize that I used to think 51 was “old.”)

Junior’s place of birth?

Donora, Pennsylvania.

Whoa.
