Happy Birthday, Young Flya!

On September 4th, 1992, Angela Cobbins of New Orleans gave birth to a baby boy named Theltus. But the world, especially Kentucky and the N.O., would only call him “Bookie.”

KSR’s favorite UK football player ever turned 20 years old today and he celebrated with homemade jambalaya and pork chops from his mother, who is in Lexington for his birthday. “Young Flya” tweeted that he’s sad his team was handed a loss for his birthday, but “next week is going to be different.”

Cheer Bookie up by leaving him a Happy Birthday comment and enjoy two of our favorite Bookie tweets from his first year and a half at Kentucky:

    I love this Bookie fella – I love how he gets so much media coverage yet hasn’t done anything to deserve it. Heck, he didn’t even have to give a(n) (articulate) speech at a Democrat Convention.

    Guys! Guys! Guys! Why the hatin’ on a brutha’? Jeez man, cool out, and drank some purple drank already! Youse fail to see the BIG BIG picture that is Tubby…oops…I mean Joker, recruiting. Bookie, Bokie, Bukie…whatever…is being held back…in reserve…so that when he is a full fledged senior, he will burst onto the scene much like a phoenix, or a Aaron Boyd, and single-handedly, save the football team, the season, Jokers job, Barneys job, the entire UK BoT, the democratic party, and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! All by the sheer awesomeness ofhis personal tweets.
