The Birthsong Project

Only five birthdays this week in Florida pro sports. What was the number one song the week your favorite players were born? Oldest first -Adam Hall - right winger - Tampa Bay Lightning - August 14, 1980

Olivia Newton-John: Magic

As a third line right winger for the underachieving Bolts last season, Hall could have used some magic to increase his production from two goals and five assists in 57 games.

Dan Orlovsky - quarterback - Tampa Bay Buccaneers - August 18, 1983

The Police: Every Breath You Take

Orlovsky may need to call the police if he wants a shot at climbing the depth chart on his fourth team in the last four seasons. He boasts a 2-10-0 record as an NFL starter, and is penciled in as Tampa Bay's number three qb.

Matt Veldman - tight end - Jacksonville Jaguars - August 12, 1988

Steve Winwood: Roll With It

A recent arrival from NDSU, Veldman isn't a lock to make the team this season, but catching the game winning two-point conversion near the end of a 32-31 Jacksonville victory over the New York Giants to open the preseason certainly keeps his chances rolling.

Michael Van Der Meulen - guard - Tampa Bay Buccaneers - August 16, 1989

Donovan Richard - linebacker - Jacksonville Jaguars - August 16, 1989

Richard Marx: Right Here Waiting

Van Der Meulen may have to wait a little longer to make an NFL roster after injuring his leg in the season opener against the Miami Dolphins. Richard is also on the bubble to make the Jags.
