Random things make me laugh so hard I start crying, and that’s what I did when I watched this video the other night.

Ramble of the Day
Here’s a random question I thought of the other day: Who’s the best footballer who shares a birthday with you?
I googled “soccer players born september 2,” and found some players I accidentally didn’t know or remember shared a birthday with me. The only person I remembered was Joey Barton, but I was very pleased to discover a few other contenders for the prize. I was stuck between Javi Martínez and Carlos Valderrama for a while, because it’s difficult to compare different types of players. In the end I picked Valderrama because he achieved an iconic status, an inherently hard thing to do.
tl;dr: Who’s the best footballer to share a birthday with you? For me, it’s Carlos Valderrama.
