"Who am I to judge?"

Obviously, Ara was my hero.

At one time I could name the starting lineups for all eight of the 1960 National League teams, including starting pitchers.

After the Nebraska game in 2000, I prayed over Knute's grave to send us a good coach. We got Ty. Nice to see that the Rock still has a sense of humor.
