  1. I was at that game! Bills/AFL homer Paul Maguire was the worst, not only did he openly root for or against certain teams his clown shtick got unbearable after 2 minutes.
  2. It seems that they kind of reversed what the NFL was doing. QB (60-69) FB (70-79) HB (80-89) WR/TE (50-59) OT (40-49) OG (30-39) C (20-29)
  3. In Jr. High, I wore 11 as a FB/TE/3rd string QB due to our coaches being fans of Jim Jensen. A few games into my 8th grade season, I got moved to the o-line due to injures and was normally 75 but they made me switch to 51 for games where I started at center.
  4. Pittsburgh: Roberto Clemente, Joe Greene, Mario Lemieux, Bill Mazeroski. The final spot is really hard to figure out, I went with Maz over Honus Wagner, Crosby, Stargell, and Bradshaw, due to Maz hitting the biggest home run in the history of the game and for being the best defensive second baseman the sport has ever seen.
  5. For Hornung, that might be the case. Wasn't Baugh technically a halfback, remember he played in the single wing where the QB was more of a blocker and the halfback or tailback was the passer. The numbers on defense back then weren't as strict and that's most likely leftover from when almost everyone played both sides of the ball. 1973 was the season the NFL got strict with numbers, but they didn't make anyone with an existing number out of whack change it, that's why someone like Alan Page wore 88 into the 80's. Also when you see old Cleveland Browns footage with Otto Graham a QB wearing 60, Marion Motley a FB wearing 76 and Lou Groza an OT wearing 46, that was from their time in the AAFC which had a its own numbering system.
  6. TV ratings are low on Labor Day weekend, that's why the NFL move the star of the season back a week in 2002.
  7. VW's US social media accounts have all be renamed Voltswagen so it seems this is legit. VW might not have been able to avoid announcing the name change April Fool's week if the plan is to kick off the new ad campaign during the Final 4.
  8. It was mainly race and a generation of sportswriters who saw Ruth as a god like figure.
  9. There's also Pitt-Johnstown, Pitt-Bradford and Pitt-Titusville, the official names are University of Pittsburgh at campus location.
  10. The Bears haven't had a great QB since Sid Luckman.
  11. One their owner put them in because he wants to be the owner of the London Jaguars not the Jacksonville Jaguars.
  12. They’ll most likely make it a placement game with the other conference, AFC teams host even years, NFC hosts odd years, they’d rotate which division plays which so there’s no overlap with the regular inter conference rotation. How is that unfair? Everyone would have 9 home games every other year, owners of teams that actually sell out their games want that 9th home game.
  13. They have but the Lakers rings take it to the next level.
  14. The ring ceremony was on before the game the other night, those rings looked comically huge on the players fingers.
  15. Plus a lot of owners will want that 9th home game every other season.
