An Excellent Birthday Gift For Takeo Spikes

Takeo Spikes is a dinosaur on the football field, but in real world years he is only 5 years older than me. Since he still calls the NFL field home, he can still be called ancient. I am sure he gets all kinds of jabs from his teammates about his age.

A few days ago, Takeo celebrated his 36th birthday and momma Takeo gave the multi-millionaire the best gift a son could get:


Thirty-six dollars son! One dollar for each year he has been on this planet. Just excellent. Momma also attached the lovely note “Don’t spend it all in one place :).”

Not sure why, but I love it. Maybe Takeo should convince momma to pay him out in NFL years. I think 36 years old in the NFL equates to 35738 human years. Now if we could only get this guy to the playoffs!

Happy birthday Takeo!

    I love Takeo. We have to get him to a playoff game. Even if he retires, and we get there maybe next year, we call him up and put him on the team for the playoffs. We owe the guy.
