Bo knows birthdays!

He won the 1985 Heisman Trophy, ran a 4.12 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, was picked first overall by the Buccaneers ... and decided to play baseball instead. Bo really did know best!

Of course, he did get back to football eventually, making the Pro Bowl in 1990 after putting on this memorable display in the 1989 MLB All-Star Game.

Happy 49th to Vincent Edward Jackson.
