Bob Hope

Bob HopeToday is Bob Hope’s 110th birthday, and nearly the 10-year anniversary of his death (coming up in July). We thought we’d take this opportunity to give a great big UB shout-out to the man from Texaco (we’re dating ourselves, aren’t we?) Bob was the consummate everything: entertainer, philanthropist, bon vivant, symbol of the American man (though he was born in England). We also had the good fortune of seeing him perform live back in the 1980s at Allen Fieldhouse at the University of Kansas during half-time of a Jayhawks basketball game. Must’ve been in his 80s at the time. He was hilarious! Here’s hoping he’s playing the back nine in Heaven right now. God bless you, Bob, and happy birthday!
