It still feels weird wishing a cybernetic organism from some distant planet in the future a birthday. I mean, honestly, do they even technically have birthdays? And if they do, what are you supposed to get them? But according to his cover story, today is Mo's birthday and I am obligated as a Yankee blogger, Yankee fan, and pathetic mere mortal to wish him a happy birthday and bow down to his all-worldly greatness.
He doesn't know if he's going to come back after his contract is up at the end of the 2012 season, so this may be the last time we get to wish him a happy b-day while he's still active and not returning to his home planet.
Happy birthday, Mo. You're the greatest individual athlete at one position in the history of sports and I think I speak for Yankee fans everywhere when I say that we love having the privilege of watching you do your thing each and every year and will truly miss it when the day comes that you decide to no longer do said thing.
P.S.- I feel so much cooler knowing that my birthday is so close to Mo's.
