He has also generated more money than any other boxer in the history of the sport, an estimated to about roughly over $700-million pay-per-view income.)
  • NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor is 61 (Once considered to be one of the greatest players in the history of football, his personal life ultimately overshadowed his accomplishments. While Taylor admitted to using drugs such as cocaine as early as his second year in the NFL, and was suspended several times by the league for failing drug tests, his drug abuse escalated after his retirement. He was even jailed three times for attempted drug possession. From 1998 to 2009, Taylor lived a sober, drug-free life – he worked as a color commentator on sporting events after his retirement, and pursued a career as an actor. Fast forward to 2011 and Taylor found himself pleading guilty to sexual misconduct involving a 16-year-old girl. Taylor was later sentenced to six years probation as part of a plea agreement, in which he pled guilty to the misdemeanors of sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute.)
  • Former vice-president Dan Quayle is 73 (He served under George H.W. Bush…andfamously misspelled potato.)
  • The late comedian David Brenner(1936-2014)…he would have been 84
  • The late feminist author Betty Friedan(1921-2006)…she would have been 99(She wrote “The Feminine Mystique” in 1963, about the plight of suburban housewives. One quote is: “It is perhaps beside the point to remark that bowling alleys and supermarkets have nursery facilities, while schools and colleges and scientific laboratories and government offices do not.”) (FAST FACT: She died on her birthday)
  • The late aviator Charles Lindbergh(1902 – 1974)(He was the first to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean)
  • The late civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks(1913-2005)(FAST FACT: The popular myth that Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat because her feet were tired is not true. “I was not tired physically,” she wrote, “or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.” Here’s the thing – she also wasn’t the first black woman to be arrested for not giving up her seat. That title actually goes toClaudette Colvin,who was the first person arrested for resisting bus segregation in Montgomery, preceding the more publicized Parks’ incident by nine months. Just 15, Montgomery's black leaders did not publicize Colvin's pioneering effort because she was a teenager and became pregnant while unmarried. Given the social norms of the time and her youth, the NAACP leaders worried about using her to represent their movement. Rosa won. And yes, she deserves credit for her role in the fight for civil rights in America – we just don’t want to forget about Claudette.)
  • The late movie director George Romero(1940 – 2017)…he would have been 80(“Night of the Living Dead,” “Dawn of the Dead”)
