I can’t believe I missed your birthday Mr. Shatner. My apologies. That’s right; William Alan Shatner, the original “Rocket Man,” turned 80 years old on March 22, 2011.
Born on March 22, 1931, William Shatner Is best known for entertaining us through the years with tales of his daring exploits amongst the stars as James Tiberius Kirk, captain of the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701). With his patented: Every. Word. Is. It’s. Own. Sentence. delivery, Shatner is an iconic actor and a true renaissance man. From his hair-raising adventures as a LCPD captain in "T.J. Hooker" to &
"$#*! My Dad Says," William Shatner has a list of television and movies credits longer than his…ego.
He courageously took on every woman on every planet he could find for the good of the Federation and still has the ability to make any green-skinned woman swoon. He is an actor, a musician, a comedian, a WOW fan, a man who can laugh at himself…and most importantly…he is Canadian.
My birthday wish to you Mr. Shatner: "May you never wear a red shirt and may you continue to live long and prosper."
