Happy Birthday, Robert Wadlow! Died at 22, but would've been 100 today. Just an inch under 9 foot.

Traveling through Norway a couple of weeks ago we saw a couple that were both VERY tall. The man was pushing 7 feet and the woman was an easy 6'6". Very athletic looking both of them.

I felt sorrow for him trying to fit into an undersized world. Here's Shaquille O'Neal next to a life-size mannequin of Wadlow.

He was still growing when he died.

Was sitting in the KC airport waiting on a flight when this really tall man and woman walked into the airport. The man had to be all of 6'10" and the woman was all of 6'4" and I can confirm that as I was eye to eye with her and I am 6'4".

So I am watching them wait around baggage claim and then this dude walks in.

Cole Aldrich of the Unniversary of Kansas who went onto play in the NBA. He was 6'11"

I was waiting with my wife in a restaurant once. Someone kept bumping me in the back. I turned around to complain and was eye to naval with Hakeem Olijuwon. I turned back around. I thought it was interesting he didn't get or ask for immediate seating.
