Tom Arnold celebrates his 50th birthday Friday.
Born in Eldon, Iowa, Tom has been a stand-up comedian, comic actor, and even a dramatic actor. He has over 100 acting credits.
He also spent several years as the host of Fox Sports’ “Best Damn Sports Show Period.”
Through it all, he has never forgotten Iowa. To the contrary, in fact. He touts it just about wherever he goes, especially during his many appearances on morning and late-night talk shows.
When his schedule has allowed it, Tom has come back to Iowa for Hawkeye football games, and he’s been to Hawkeye bowl games. He has been a fierce backer of Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz, never more so than in the leaner years of 2006 and 2007.
Now the man is about to be 50. The Hlog extends sincerest wishes for an enjoyable birthday, and encourages you good readers to tack on a birthday greeting of your own here.
(Thanks to the fine folks at www.midwestauction.com for the head’s up on Tom’s birthdate.)
