Didn't really know him has a QB. When I watched him he was a straight on kicker for the Raiders. I thought he'd go on forever.

Sort of makes a person feel old when hearing about somebody like Blanda moving to the next level. Funny, I know it was a fair bit ago, but then when I remember some of the actual games it seems like just last season, or something. Weird.

I'll tell you when I'm really, really gonna feel old, though. That's if I outlive that Hollywood Joe fella that had that amazing game for the championship. Of course, you know who I mean.

But then I remember the Miami Dolphins and their undefeated season.

Or that ball that bounced off what's-his-name's helmet - something Franco, yes? He was in Nam, wasn't he?

Then there are all the clutch kicks from the foot of George Blanda. Didn't he have some sort of scoring record, now that I think about it?

I think I've made myself feel older posting this.

Big mistake there -- Rocky Bleier is the one I was thinking about that did a tour in the RVN.

No doubt.

RIP George.
