Want to Hear a Really Weird Fact about Valentine's Day and the NFL?

February 14, 2011

Of course you do. Who doesn't enjoy merging professional football with a holiday built around greeting card profiteering. So, sit back, relax and revel at the fact that quarterbacks born on February 14th (Valentine's Day?) have produced more NFL passing yards than players birthed on any other day of the year.


Steve McNair, Drew Bledsoe, David Garrard, Patrick Ramsey and Jim Kelly all escaped their mother's wombs on February14th. Combined they racked up 127,372 career passing yards.

But wait, it gets weirder.

February 15th happens to be the day which produced the second most NFL passing yards thanks to John Hadl and Ken Anderson.

If you're an overbearing parent trying to live vicariously through your child's athletic performance, try having unprotected sex on May 14th. It seems like a historically effective strategy.
