Hackworth touchline

Daily Doop: Birthday boy rundown and local TV times forthcoming

Hey everyone, in the spirit of this being the 43rd birthday of our fearless leader manager John Hackworth we thought in today’s “The Daily Doop,” we'd break down a list of other “famous celebrities”  that were born on the same day.

In the soccer world:

Real Madrid and Portuguese forward-midfielder Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester City and Argentine forward Carlos Tevez

Santos FC and Brazilian forward Neymar

In the sports world:

Baseball great Hank Aaron who held Major League Baseball’s home run record with 755 home runs – pre-steroid era, of course

Baseball great Roberto Alomar who was a 12-time MLB All-Star

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach, who this writer’s affinity for all things Philadelphia sports will not allow me to regale you with his accomplishments.

Former Penn State quarterback Daryll Clark.

In the music world:

R&B singer and New Edition front man Bobby Brown

Country singer Sara Evans

Former Guns and Roses guitarist Duff McKagan

In the television and movie world:

Actor Darren Criss, star of Glee

Stephen J. Cannell, producer of such awesomeness as the original “A-Team” and “The Rockford Files”

Actresses Laura Linney and Jennifer Jason Leigh

Director Michael Mann (who in this writer’s opinion made one of the best movies of all time with “Heat.”)

Think of someone we missed? Leave us a comment below.

Happy birthday, Hack; we all hope it was a good one.

Moving on…

Local television times for the Union schedule will be released this week. The holdup is internal, but the complete rundown is forthcoming.

In the news…
