Huh. It didn't do that to me, but I have the autoplay turned off for ESPN.

Anyway, I always liked old Bud. Good to see he's still kicking around.

Did he stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night?

The 60s and 70s were a great time to be a kid and sports back then was one reason.

His son Mike Grant was my high school football coach at Eden Prairie, MN. They are a great football family

His book is a pretty entertaining read, for those football fans that enjoy reading or being read to

I was thinking the guy who does the voiceover for the "most interesting man in the world" commercials.

Not too many people mention the voice of God any more.  I try to educate the youngsters about such things, but they just don't get it.  I appreciate greatness from any era.

Have you heard whoever it is that introduces Westwood One radio broadcasts of NFL games and the NCAA tournament? It's like he's trying to sound like Facenda but he just comes off as creepy molester guy.

I liked old Bud. The new Bud is made with rice.

Thanks for posting, subby.  Had no idea he was still alive.

Yep.  And none of that quick-whistle wuss rules back then.  Real he-men played the game and we loved watching them.

Had to think for a moment, but yes I have.  I make fun of him every time I hear him (usually driving).  I try to go as low and drippy as he is.

 An old HBO show about the NFL used to have a guy that I'm sure they hired because he sounded like Facenda,.  He was close, but you knew it wasn't JF.
