Ha! It was supposed to be the first four-panel strip on that page -— as a clickable link —— just for the heck of it —— but they foiled me. (I’m sure I posted the right URL.)

This format reminds me of an old TV program that I never saw, except for short clips --- "Cop Rock" --- a police show with most of the dialogue in song. Clip from Cop Rock. Hav eno idea why this failed. ;-)

Great picture. Go Satchel! Stuff of legend around these parts.

Great group of ball players. I gave a few baseball cards of several of those guys. But what about Willie McCovey, Cleon Jones, etc. ?

I believe you are right about Willie and Cleon. For some reason south Ala is a hotbed for baseball. I also remember a guy named Chuck Conners played for the Mobile Bears in the 40’s

In South West PA we would feel the same way about quarterbacks, such as being the birth region of Johnny Unitas, Johnny Lujack, Joe Namath, Dan Marino, Jim Kelly, Joe Montana (my homeboy), and George Blanda.

I spent a couple of years Butler County Pa. Beautiful country. Johnny Joe Montana is the greatest. In Alabama, the other Joe, takes precedent.

Joe Willie White Shoes. It was Joe's preposterous Super Bowl Week "guarantee" that the upstart Jets would beat the talent-rich Colts in SB III (when everyone else knew the Jets didn't stand a chance) that made Joe's legend.

That’s okay, Vision! We were watching to see if you were going to post, and we were ready in case you didn’t. :-) SteelYourFaith did all the hard work in posting.

Don’t work too hard. See you next Sunday, Lord willing!
