A Big Birthday Bash II

Get in line for a slice of cake as we're serving up a full helping of today's birthdays.

Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

Don't let the short-shorts fool you into thinking I am just a jock. After winning an Olympic gold medal in 1964, I attended Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship. Once I wrapped up my NBA career in 1977 with two NBA championships with the Knicks, I turned to politics as a New Jersey senator (and even ran for President in 2000). I am celebrating my 77th birthday today.

America's bride

When she met Rep. John Kennedy at a dinner in 1952, she could have never imagined the roller coaster in which she had just strapped in. They married the following year and Jackie Kennedy would soon learn about life as an icon. Jackie O was born on this day in 1929.
