Coaches have to remember a lot of things: plays, the names and numbers of their players, how to keep their cool during games. And Bob has won numerous awards and championships, but somehow he just couldnt manage to remember Marks birthday this year.
They were on a family vacation in Destin, Florida, when Mark was recognized by a Kentucky fan who wished him a happy birthday. Then Bob looked at Mark and said, Its your birthday?
While Mark didnt have any awkward underwear incidents involving a room full of teenage boys or problems with his grandparents meddling in his dating life, he did manage to respond with a bit of sarcasm that Samantha Baker would appreciate.
I said, Yeah. Thanks for being so in tune, Bob. Thank you, Mark said while telling the story at Lexington Rotary Club in Lexington, Kentucky.
