Reggae great would have turned 68 on Wednesday.
Bob Marley would have been 68 years old on Wednesday. To mark the occasion, I asked Del Ray Patch Facebook and Twitter followers to offer their favorite tunes from the late reggae great. I went with 1973’s “Stir It Up” mainly for the guitar solo, but it was a really tough call. Here’s what you guys offered up on the Del Ray Patch Facebook page: Pete Lundgren: Waiting in Vain Lindsey Swanson: Hard to choose one but I'd go with Redemption Song. And on Twitter: @Gtwodagee: Gotta go with Mr. Brown; the organ sounds like no other EVER! @AnnaPJs Three Little Birds. Definitively. You just "feel" that song, every time. @wdncnu Redemption Song, and no other answers should be accepted. What’s your favorite Bob Marley song? Tell us in the comments.

Green Bay nosetackle BJ Raji is using a photo of the decorated freezer at Del Ray's frozen custard as his Twitter avatar.
Green Bay Packers nosetackle BJ Raji has a thing for The Dairy Godmother, even if he’s never been to Del Ray’s frozen custard shop. The Packers’ big man, nicknamed “The Freezer,” has a photo of the Godmother’s icebox as his Twitter avatar. During the Packers’ 2011 run to the Super Bowl, superfan and shop owner Liz Davis adorned her freezer with green tape spelling out Raji’s last name and jersey number. Raji's Twitter handle is "rajifreezer90," making the photo a perfect fit. Davis is unsure how the photo made its way to the big guy. “Just discovered that my hero, BJ Raji, the Freezer, is using the picture of our Raji freezer as his Twitter avatar,” Davis wrote on The Dairy Godmother's Facebook page. “I am deeply humbled and so thrilled I…
