Padres TV crew gives Andy Green the gift of a hand-drawn birthday cake displayed on the screen

Once a year, everybody gets to experience a birthday. That special day usually involves greetings and well-wishes from friends, acquaintances, family members and even strangers, in certain circumstances.
Padres manager Andy Green turned 39 on Thursday, and received arguably one of the finest gifts anyone could receive: A special birthday cake proudly drawn live on the FOX Sports San Diego broadcast screen during San Diego's game with the Dodgers:

As if that e-cake wasn't already a wonderful, thoughtful present for Green, his Padres beat the Dodgers, 6-0, too. Talk about a great birthday.
