Really? His Name is Ulrich?

Really? I would have never in a million years have guessed. Yes, I'm talking about former LA Laker, turned actor, Rick Fox. Brother's proper name is Ulrich Alexander Fox.

Ulrich, huh? Well it's different, but unique. And I can dig the Alexander aspect to his name. Alexander is such a wonderful middle name yo! Especially when you got a boring first name and a weird family name also accompanying that, but I digress.

Anyway...while doing my little research prior to penning this post, I was a little surprised by facts I discovered. Besides his name, well there's the fact he's Canadian, born in one of my favorites spots, Toronto, and that Dear Ulrich is only eight months older than me.

Again...really? Wow! For some reason I already thought had transcended the magical age of 40.

So am I crazy for thinking Rick is handsome? Yes, I know the hair is a bit grayer, the laugh lines are more noticeable, but Ulrich still has the height and I noticed he got rid of that nasty soul patch he was sporting in Meet The Browns. Besides, Vanessa Williams agreed with me for a time, and I respect her judgment. (Look for a blog on her Ms. Williams in the near future)

Of course "Wilhelmina" eventually divorced Rick...but they remain amicable, so he can't be all that bad, right? What say you...

Ouch! Toddy, Toddy, Toddy! Bruh, what ya doing to me? LOL. "Distinguished older man?" Remember I said Rick is only 8 months older than me???? He was born in July '69 and I was born March '70. If Rick's distinguished, what's that make me? LOL.

Naw man, I ain't mad atcha. I forget you're still in your 20s. Besides, Rick looks so much older than what his age presents.

Honestly? I thought Rick was in his mid to late 40s with those age lines and gray hair...but I still think Ricky-boy is handsome.

I've been into Rick since his Tar Heels days. Absolutely hot and at first I thought "How cute, he wants to be an actor," but he appears to be serious about it.

Listen up you young bitches. I was born in 1967 - and I will NOT have all this "older man" talk!!!

I don't care if Rick's real name is "Mephistopheles", I have always thought he was fine.

David, you crack me up bro, but I second you on Rick, I was just surprised at his true age. Rick looks older than all of us. Seriously, I would 've pegged him at President Obama's age (47).

And just so you know Senor Dust, I have a tendency to call people by their proper names (just don't call me by mine) and would be calling him Ulrich all the time! J'adore his name.
