at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
Alex Karras, Detroit Lions defensive great, dies at age 77 - ESPN
You can argue that this belongs on the NFL page, but I disagree, I think Karras was more known for Mongo and as being the father on Webster than he ever was as a football player.
I saw the other day that he was knocking on death's door.
Mongo only pawn... in game of life
Mongo like candy.
He was great on Webster!
I blame the Candygram...
Requiescat in pace...
