a great player but I will always remember him most for

The Norm Cash stories–even just the ones that can be repeated–are endless. Like the time he was trapped between first and second base and he formed a “T’ with his hands to call time-out.

But the most comical and audacious move he ever made occurred on July 15, 1973 at Tiger Stadium when he stepped to the plate as the last hitter to face Nolan Ryan who was trying to complete his second career no hitter after striking out 17 batters.

After striking out three times, as legend has it Stormn’ Norman walked up to the plate with a table leg from the locker room. The plate umpire, Ron Luciano told him he couldn’t use it and Cash responded, “Why not I won’t him anyway” before tossing it aside.

Nov. 23 1977 -- NY Yankee WS hero Mike Torrez signs w/Sox -- ya the times were changing
a point brought home for good Nov. 14, 1978 -- Luis Tiant bolts Sox for Yanks -- at the positive height of the rivalry -- ya it was all about the $ now -- but no 1 could blame Luis, George S's deal gave him lifetime security, it was said at the time

Celts screwed up home&home w/lowly Bklyn last night (get back soon Marcus Smart)
B's can't afford to do same tonite in Tor. -- get back qwik Daniel Pastrnak

George Blanda


I will always remember 1970

In 1970, Blanda was released during the exhibition season, but bounced back to establish his 21st professional season. That season (1970) Blanda, at age 43, had a remarkable five-game run. Against the Steelers, Blanda threw for three touchdowns in relief of an injured Daryle Lamonica. One week later, his 48-yard field goal with three seconds remaining salvaged a 17–17 tie with the Kansas City Chiefs. On November 8, Blanda once again came off the bench to throw for a touchdown pass to tie the Cleveland Browns with 1:34 remaining, then kicked a 53-yard field goal with 0:03 left for the 23–20 win. Immediately after the winning field goal, Raiders radio announcer Bill King excitedly declared, "George Blanda has just been elected King of the World!"[3] In the team's next game, Blanda replaced Lamonica in the fourth quarter and connected with Fred Biletnikoff on a touchdown pass with 2:28 left in the game to defeat the Denver Broncos, 24–19. The streak concluded one week later when Blanda's 16-yard field goal in the closing seconds defeated the San Diego Chargers, 20–17.

In the AFC title game against the Baltimore Colts, Blanda again relieved an injured Lamonica, completing 17 of 32 passes for 217 yards and 2 touchdowns while also kicking a 48-yard field goal and two extra points, keeping the Raiders in the game until the final quarter, when he was intercepted twice. Aged 43, he became the oldest quarterback ever to play in a championship game, and was one of the few remaining straight-ahead kickers in the NFL.

Blanda's achievements resulted in his winning the Bert Bell Award. Chiefs' owner Lamar Hunt said, "Why, this George Blanda is as good as his father, who used to play for Houston." Although he never again played a major role at quarterback, Blanda would serve as the Raiders' kicker for five more seasons.

How can it be 36 years ago
but it was one of the greatest fights one could ever hope to see
Marvin Hagler-Vito Antuofermo, Nov. 30 1979
Both the challenger and heavy favorite, Marvin dominated the first half of the fight, then Vito came on in the last half

outcome, a 15-round draw that enabled Vito to keep his title in one of the great all-time contests -- in any sport

Statue unveiling yesterday in Easton PA for a deserving guy, Larry Holmes
The Easton Assassin -- he would've been a champion/contender in any era
the fight he won the title in, June 1978 w/Ken Norton, was 15 rounds of athletic competition at its best -- both guys spent after the 13th, & went extra/hung on as best they could over last 2 -- incredible stuff that made that year's two Ali-Spinks fights seem tame

Happy 80th birthday, Sandy Koufax
what an ace -- few better in their 'prime'
he was 111-34 with a 1.95 ERA in 176 starts with the Dodgers from 1962 to 1966, a five-season stretch that closed out his major league career. During that stretch, he led the NL in ERA every season and pitched four no-hitters.

"Winter Classic"??
There's not much classic about state of B's & Habs nowadays
One end of the rink will be where patrolled one of our best 3Bs -- Frank Malzone -- who passed away yesterday at 85

to see these two reeling squads trying to make plays -- on the same spot where Malzie ate up ground balls -- then grabbed a bat and belted 'em all over the park -- they should put bags over their heads when skating into the third base area -- let's go Bruins -- keep Malzie in mind

RIP Frank Malzone

I don't know **** -- thought it was at Fenway, like before




RIP Howard Davis Jr. -- on a team w/Ray Leonard, Michael & Leon Spinks, Leo Randolph etc., was voted the top boxer in 1976 Olympics -- never did much as a pro but had the blazing hand speed/footwork in the Olympics -- gone too soon at age 59
