As one who also had a birtnday this week, I know the feeling - sharing your birthday with Mother's Day on some years. But it's an honor really, so don't let anyone tell you different, Bobby and Tyler! I don't think the Revs duo (who turn 25 and 20 years old, respectively) could have asked for a better present than last night's win over Vancouver (Full recap here).

The guys also share their birthday with such notable names as Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, musical legends Stevie Wonder and Ritchie Valens, music non-legend Darius Rucker, actor Harvey Keitel (a.k.a. "The Wolf"), "Colbert Report" host Stephen Colbert, boxer Joe Louis and former NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman. That's a crew I wouldn't mind having lunch with! Well, minus the Twilight guy, anyway (sorry).

Is today your birthday too? If so, happy birthday! And a Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.

As if you needed another excuse to celebrate on Cinco de Mayo - on this very same day in 1988 - Revolution defender Kevin Alston was born in Washington, D.C.

Davis ("Alice" on The Brady Bunch), Danielle Fishel (who you may remember as "Topanga" on Boy Meets World), performing artist Craig David, "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams and 80s sitcom star Tina Youthers. Not a bad bunch!

Now we all know Kevin has had a tough week with the team having three games in eight days and an unfortunate bout with illness. So, if you want to wish Kevin a happy birthday, hit him up on twitter (@KAlston30). And if you are also a Cinco de Mayo baby - happy birthday to you, too.
