35 years ago today, my eldest son, Rafael, was born.
That was on 11-11-77. He weighed 7 lbs, 11 ozs. He was born exactly at 17:00 hrs. He was the only birth in Chico, CA. and made the local news.
So today, he is overseas and working during the Bears game.
"Unbelievable!" Rafi exclaims, given that he'll always watch every game, what ever time zone he is in, which ever country he is in, hands down.
His last email said "Go Bears! A win over Houston would be a great birthday gift!."
Let's hope his numbers will bring the Bears some luck today. Their offensive line, against J.J. Watt, will need it.
