Judge Wapner dies at 97

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/joseph-wapner-dead-peoples-court-judge-was-97-report-980185 The original "People's Court" wasn't nearly as trashy as all the imitators. They actually talked about concepts like preponderance of evidence and don't buy anything "as is" or you'd be screwed.

Back in the 70's, my dad and I would watch the Johnny Carson Show every night before going to bed. We would always look forward to Rickles either as a guest or being the guest host. Doc Severinson's intro song for Rickles was spot on. The Matador Music: Ever wondered why Don Rickles prefers to take the stage to Spanish matador music? Well, in Rickles' own words, he likes to be introduced by the song, "La Virgen de la Macarena," because, "I always pictured myself facing the audience as the...

J. Geils, 1946-2017

Remember the early 80s song "Centerfold"? John Geils, frontman for the J. Geils Band that had a big #1 hit with the song, has died aged 71 . Blair Kiel would have hit the young women in the video back in the day; Beef would hit them now. :(

Geils was quite the accomplished guitarist, and was very well-respected by his peers. With apologies to BK (and others?), I never cared for any of the Pop crap ( Centerfold, Freeze Frame, Love Stinks , etc.), but EKB was on the right track. Recommended JG tunes: "Orange Driver" (Hotline), "Give It To Me" (Bloodshot), "Looking For A Love" and "Whammer Jammer" (The Morning After). Geils and Magic Dick formed Bluestime after the J Geils Band, and went back to a more roots-based, jazz and blues...

I read a NY Times article from the '62 championship week wherein Jerry Kramer was described as "A giant of a man" weighing over 235 lbs. You have to remember that the great depression deprived a lot of people of their full genetic birthright. Many were malnourished and the "norm" was consequently reduced. My paternal grandfather was over 6' tall and Grandma was about 5'7" even in her 60's. Yet my dad, born in 1928, grew up fairy tale poor and barely reached 5'9". My mom was 5'4". Only one of...

Your Howton card must be pre 1959. Lombardi traded him as one of his first acts as GM.

'59 was also the year Lombardi changed the uniforms from blue to green, wasn't it?

Ammo. Correct. That was a '58 Topps. The '59 set Fedya, shows a combo of some blue and some almost olive green uniforms. Many times they would use pictures from previous years, so I do think the Pack went "Green" in '59. Also, notice Jim Taylor-----that's not Jim Taylor---Topps used the wrong picture of him two years in a row. Yeah, I'm a geek.
