    today is bob dylan’s birthday, he’s 72 

    bob dylan with mick and keith

    last night while playing pool i was trying to explain to a very nice man who pete rose was

    i said, the hardest thing to do in sport is to hit a round ball with a round bat

    being hurled at you a mere 60 feet away and safely get on first base.

    of all the people in the world who played pro sports, pete rose had more hits than anyone.

    if i knew last night that today was bob dylan’s birthday i would have added

    and bob dylan is pete rose, michael jordan, walter payton, pele, and wayne gretzky

    combined

    in a funny hat

    and a raspy voice

    strumming a guitar, while playing the harmonica

    reciting some of the most fluid and beautiful poetry

    to some of the most timeless music we’ve ever heard since recordings began.

    here’s 72 shining examples of that
