Birthdays Today

Happy birthday to:

Isiah Thomas

A phenomenal point guard (have you seen the footage of him scoring 16 points in one minute, thirty seconds?!) and a questionable front-office executive. I can’t believe he got a contract extension after this season was declared a “put-up or shut-up” year and the Knicks sucked. An example of a guy who didn’t quit when he should have, but still one of the NBA’s all-time greats.

“Zeke” turns 45 today.

Adrian Pasdar

“Flying man! WHOOSH!” If you’re not watching “Heroes” on NBC Monday nights at 9:00 PM, you’re missing out.

Also the husband of Natalie Maines, the lead singer of the Dixie Chicks. DYK?, he also had parts in “Top Gun,” “Solarbabies,” and earned a football scholarship to the University of Florida? His football career was cut short when he was involved in a car accident that left his face scarred and his legs badly injured.

He is 42 today.

Kirsten Dunst

I think she’s got a small movie opening this weekend called “Spider-Man 3.” It might make some cash for her. Here’s a selection of her filmography:

Star Trek: The Next Generation
Little Women
Interview with a Vampire
Kiki’s Delivery Service (English-language dub)
The Virgin Suicides
Bring It On
The Crow: Salvation
Mona Lisa Smile
Spider-Man 2
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Marie Anoinette

She’s all of 25.
