The Birthsong Project

In this new feature, we’ll look at who’s birthday is coming up and what was the number one song at that time. In today’s installment, we have seven pro athletes represented. In order of birth:

↵

Miami Dolphins linebacker Cameron Wake: January 30, 1982
"I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)" by Hall & Oates.
Wake doesn’t take it from anybody!

↵

Florida Panthers winger Tomas Kopecky:
February 5, 1982
"Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band.
The Panthers sweater isn’t fuzzy, or magical to touch, but Kopecky is comfortable with his blood running cold.

↵

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Michael Spurlock: January 31, 1983, and Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Dane De La Rosa: February 1, 1983
"Down Under" by Men at Work
As the first ever Buc to return a kickoff for a touchdown, nobody works as hard as Spurlock. De La Rosa will have to impress at spring training to earn a spot with the big club.

↵

Florida Marlins pitcher Josh Johnson: January 31, 1984
"Owner of a Lonely Heart" by Yes
I guess it’s lonely at the top, as nobody can keep up with Johnson when he is injury free. Can he contribute all season long? We hope the answer is Yes!

↵

Florida Marlins pitcher Ryan Webb: February 5, 1986
"That’s What Friends Are For" by Dionne Warwick and Friends
What are friends for? Webb should thank his stars he works out of the bullpen.

↵

Florida Panthers goalie Jacob Markstrom: January 31, 1990
"How am I Supposed To Live Without You" by Michael Bolton
Panther faithful opened this season convinced the team wouldn’t be able to survive without Markstrom in net. His season cut short by injury, we’ll stay tuned and see if we have to live another season without him.
