    Christopher Mitchell by far. He is the GOAT. Check out his work as Kyle Prescott.

    How about Major Oglevie. There is a blast from the past. I think he won back to back Nat'l Champs in the late 70's.

    Now that’s a name I haven’t heard since my youth. Always thought it was a cool name.

    Joe Namath was my guy growing up. How could you not, as a 12-year-old boy, love a New York apartment with six-inch-thick llama rugs on the floor? And an autobiography titled, "I Can't Wait Until Tomorrow 'Cause I Get Better Looking Every Day?"

    I Can't Wait Until Tomorrow ... 'Cause I Get Better-Looking Every Day: Joe Willie Namath, Dick Schaap: 9780394452623: Amazon.com: Books




    Plus the pantyhose commercial.

    I loved Joe Namath. My dad hated him. The closest my dad came to crying that wasn't a funeral was after Super Bowl III.

    Lol. Id forgot about that commercial. He made some Noxema commercials with some hot ladies if i remember correctly.

    Interesting stat. Joe rushed for more TDs his Senior year at Alabama than he passed for.

    Major Ogilvie was drafted by the 49ers. But they already had the kid from Notre Dame. I think his name was Montana.

    Now, moses, I know you remember the hot chick. It was Farrah Fawcett.

    Joe Willie was in some stellar commercials. I saw his movie, "C.C. and Company," with Ann Margaret.

    That was the movie he was a biker in. Remember it well, again as a much younger person on Channel 100.

    Now does anyone remember that? It was like an early HBO when we first got cable. Usually had a couple first run movies a month on it. Remember watching “Race with the Devil” with Warren Oates and Peter Fonda in it with my friends and thinking it was the coolest thing ever.

    That's right. How could I forget that. I think all my buddies and I had that poster of her in junior high.:D

    We watched Super Bowl III during Covid on the big screen at Peppermill when there were no live sports. The Jets didnt have an answer for Tom Matte. But he got hurt after a long run. The Colts waited too long to bring in Johnny U.

    A sad moment for my family was when Gale Sayers blew out his knee against the 49ers. We were all bawlin.

    I used that poster in a speech I gave in speech class as a freshman in college. I had a movie screen rolled down to hide the poster, which was on the blackboard. The speech was about how to give a speech. So the intro, the body, and the conclusion were considered the three parts of a formal speech. I gave as an example of a great intro, "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears," and I had a guy out of view outside the door pitch a bunch of ears of corn at me. Then I proceeded to the body of the speech and rolled up the screen, revealing Farah. I explained how this was the best example of the body of a speech I could find.

    It was one of my shining academic moments, of which there were not many.

    Boz, this took place at Schuylkill Campus, on Route 61 just south of Schuylkill Haven.

    As I said, not sure to what degree outside pressure woke-ness played into this. The NFL was under no obligation to leak emails. So why do it and do it piecemeal? Unless they were on some ratcheting up the pressure binge and wanted Gruden gone? They get to play the politically correct good guys, unveiling what an evil racist bastard was in their midst, but they gave him the boot. Complete hypocrisy unless they unveil everyone's emails for perusal. Think that's gonna happen? Or are we to understand that of the half a million emails fluttering about between execs, Gruden's were the only ones unfashionable?

    TATER Says: Excellent post. I care as much about this as what I ate for breakfast last Tuesday. But 650,000 emails researched and Grudens were the only ones put out?

    In the words of Vince Lombardi "what da hells goin on out dare"?
