Who am I?

I was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and I stayed a Volunteer for my college years. My time on the gridiron at Knoxville earned me a first round pick in the NFL draft. During my 15-year career I scored two touch downs, yet I played in 13 Pro Bowls and was nominated a First-Team All-Pro eight […]

Performance of the week (POTW) 10/13 – 10/19

Ah baseball – the sport not controlled by time. As long as a team has one out they can prolong the contest. Down seven with seven outs remaining the Boston Red Sox had one of those moments that leaves people saying – now that’s why I watch sports. Facing elimination the Saux pulled off another […]

Who am I?

Editor’s note: some research my be required for this one. I was born in Pittston, PA and later roamed the gridiron at Georgia. While on the Athens campus I played for Orange, Sugar, and Rose Bowl teams. I won a Maxwell award (for the college football player of the year), and I even batted .464 […]

Odd & Ends

Observations from the weekend … thru Saturday: 1) I’m in love with Boise, Idaho. Very quaint city … EXTREMELY CLEAN … well thought out … scenic … “outdoorsy” … nice people. The only problem is the blue smurf turf. The BSU Broncos are definitely a thinking-man’s team. They play no-huddle quickball and rely, to some […]

Saturday with the cards-gone but not forgotten: Oakland Seals

Quick!

Yeah, they are the team usually forgotten with this trivia question. The Seals lived a […]

Who am I?

I was born in Montreal, Quebec, and like so many Canadian lads I took to the frozen pond. I played junior hockey in Sorel and Verdun. I proved to be worthy of my first round NHL draft status. In my 22-year career I racked up some of the best numbers of all-time. I still rank […]

Who am I?

Mine is a story of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I was born in Newark, New Jersey and eventually attended the University of Maryland. Running for the Terrapins I won three NCAA titles. At one time or another I held World Records for the 50 meter, 55 meter, and 110 meter […]

Who am I?

I grew up surrounded by the coal-mines of Uniontown, Pennsylvania. I would go on to play college pigskin at California. There I finished second in the Heisman voting despite out-rushing the winner and earned a first-round selection in the NFL draft. During my ten-year NFL career, with two different teams, I appeared in three Pro […]
