Then fellow AN user Nick carelessly turned 40 on July 11th of this year - that would be the last time the Oakland A's won a baseball game. The last time Frank Thomas played? That would be on his 40th birthday, May 27th - the "5th decade" has not been kind to the Big Hurt so far. Need more proof? Spell "brew" backwards, take out the -- Oh never mind.
