Happy Birthday Breno

Posted Sep 27, 2013

Breno Giacomini turns 28 on Friday. And only the biggest of birthday wishes will do for the Seahawks’ 6-foot-7, 318-pound starting right tackle who just happens to have a thing for even larger animals.

On Breno Giacomini’s 28th birthday, we send – what else? – big birthday wishes his way.

Yes, the Seahawks’ starting right tackle is celebrating his birthday on Friday, and needs the biggest of birthday wishes to match his 6-foot-7, 318-pound body. Giacomini might have been born in Cambridge, Mass., on Sept. 27, 1985, but he is a Louisville kind of guy after playing his college ball for the Cardinals.

And what do you get someone as big as Breno, as Louisville as Giacomini, for his birthday if cost is not a factor?

“I’d get him a race horse so he could watch it race in the Kentucky Derby,” Max Unger, the Seahawks’ All-Pro center, said this week. “He loves going to the Derby. He lives in Louisville during the offseason and he goes to the races a bunch and likes to the Derby. So I’d give him a race horse.”

And what might the Derby-loving Giacomini name the horse?

“Probably No Bigs,” Unger said.
