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...
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...
Here's a link to the SB I roster. It will take some time to look through all the names, but I'd guess a surprisingly large number of them are still living. Albeit, some are just barely hanging on. SB I Roster
No, but your post added him to my list. I am collecting every Packer card put out between 1948 (Leaf) and 1975 (Topps).... and the cards of every player that spent time with the Packers at any point in time......that has lead me to such guys as Lamar McHan and the greatest football card.... ever:
Yeah, since I don't travel with my collection I hot-linked an image of the card. Tonight when I get home, I will take a picture of the one I own with my middle finger extended towards you to prove I own it.
Going through this list, I found that many players are still with us. What was intriguing, though, was each player's playing weight. Gale Gillingham, Guard, weighed 255. Lionel Aldridge, Right Defensive End, weighed 254 and Jerry Kramer, Guard, weighed 245. It was a different league back then!
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...
Dad told me how his mom made sure he got a glass of milk every week. We had a freakin' river of the stuff in our house. We had a river of the stuff in our house when I was growing up, and I only reached 5'8". Of course, Grandpa was about 5'2", and not because of the depression.
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.
Erin Moran, the actress who played Joanie Cunningham on the Milwaukee-set TV series Happy Days but had a troubled personal life after the show wrapped, dies aged 56 . Chachi is in mourning, we presume.
Oscar-winning director of Silence of the Lambs dies at 73 :( Demme also directed Mary Steenburgen to an Oscar win in Melvin and Howard , and Tom Hanks to his first Oscar in Philadelphia , although the less said about that one the better. Let's celebrate Demme's life with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
