    There’s a story in The Junction Boys about Dennis Goehring asking for more playing time so Coach Bryant started him at defensive tackle opposite Forrest Gregg, who was an All American for SMU. On the first play Goehring jumped offsides and hit Gregg in the face with a forearm. Bryant took him out of the game and asked Goehring why he did it. “I needed to get the big man’s attention.” Bryant put him back in the game.

    I first learned who Forrest Gregg was when I read this back in the day....

    Mary Tyler Moore may have been the one who turned the world on with her smile, as Moore's sitcom theme has it, but co-star Georgia Engel helped make sure viewers' grins never faded into frowns.
    Engel is best known for her role as soft-voiced Georgette Franklin, the sweet, ever-so-innocent girlfriend and later wife of self-important TV anchor Ted Baxter (Ted Knight) on one of the best sitcoms ever, "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."

    Couple of requests

    1. If you post a link, please at least put a line telling us who it is. Instead of a link and a random comment that doesn’t say who passed
    2. Remember this is no politics. Even if it’s a politician that died

    My brother - the news producer with access to the wire - states that Boston Celtics great John Havlicek has passed away.
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    Here you go. He was a great player for tOSU and the Celtics. This was in the days when I stilled watched college basketball and the NBA. He was a sophomore starter on the 1960 NCAA champion Ohio State Buckeyes. The Buckeyes started 3 sophomores (freshmen could not play varsity ball during those years) John Havlicek, Jerry Lucas, Mel Nowell, Joe Roberts, a senior and junior Larry Seigfreid. The 6th man, first off the bench was another sophomore, Bobby Knight. Beat UCal in 1960 for the NCAA championship and made it to the finals in both 1961 and 1962 losing both times to the University of Cincinnati. Great team, great players, lots of memories. RIP John Havlicek.

    The passing of John Havlicek really saddens me. Great player and one on my childhood favorites. Red Auerbach, at John's retirement, said if he had a son and he was just like John, he would be the happiest man in the world.

    I remember a story about Woody Hayes trying to get Havlicek to come out for the football team. Seems he was a high school QB and the story was that he could stand in the end zone and throw it into the other end zone.

    Director John Singleton dies at 51. I did not realize how young he was when he directed Boyz in the Hood.
