January 26th is an important day in pop culture history. Today marks the births of Hockey Legend Wayne Gretzky, Academy Award winner Paul Newman and Outspoken Comedienne Ellen DeGeneres. However on a day so cherished, it is desperately unfortunate that we must include ex-Raptor Vince Carter, who will be blowing out twenty-eight candles today. With all the life-threatening injuries he has sustained during his illustrious career, we must congratulate him on making it this far. Well Done VC!
On the top of Carter’s wishlist for this year’s B-day? A week off practice, open-arms from his ‘loyal fans’, a kiss from his mother and an NBA lockout. Crappy Birthday Vincent. No one’s coming to your party except for your mom.
