Tyler Ulis is battling a cold on his birthday


Happy, happy birthday to the King of the Waterbugs, Tyler Ulis. The pesky freshman point guard celebrates his 19th birthday today, which means he came in to the world back in 1996, the year that also brought us the Macarena, “Independence Day,” and Tickle Me Elmo. I think we can all agree Tyler is better than any of those things.

Unfortunately, Ulis was a little under the weather when he met with reporters today, hacking and coughing throughout interviews. Ulis said it’s the tail end of a nasty cold he got over the break, and he’s feeling much better now. Phew.

Be sure to wish him a happy birthday @tulis3 on Twitter or in the comments.
