A trip down memory lane

59 years of futility!! :v):

My memory of playoffs starts in early 80s. I barely/vaguely remember loss to Eagles and remember very well the win against falcons followed by loss to the Redskins. I liked Ted Brown Tommy Kramer and Matt Blair a lot

Man I could sit here and rattle off the names and numbers of so many great players over the years since I was a kid. Whenever I hear Matt Blair I think of 59 coming in amd blocking punts and FGs. So great at it. Even makes me laugh thinking of watching 49 go through the hole blocking for 44 Chuck Forrman. Then later seeing 49 as he got ready to go out and do his job in his uniform after hearing "Remember people, let's be careful out there".. on Hill Street Blues... Ed Marinaro. Then remember Brent McClanahan 33 blocking and running. 83 TE Stu Voight. Fun to remember all those old guys. Could do this all day. Memories

A memory of Sammy White...

I played a board/card game called APBA Football back in the 70's. The game allowed you to run two "trick" plays per game (1 per half) Whenever I would run an end round with Sammy, it would almost always go for a TD. After a while, the other guys made it illegal for me to use it.

My first memory as a Vikings fan was the Hail Mary from Kramer to Rashad!!!! Against the Browns in the old Met to clinch the division. I believe that is the year they lost to Ron Jaworski and the Eagles, but not 100% sure. And I think Eagles went on to lose to Plunket and the Raiders in the superbowl??

Yes he was married to her. Phylicia Rashad. But it's been confirmed that it was really just a ruse wedding. Totally fake for the news media to throw them off. It was confirmed then and still now all these years later that Ahmad was really totally in love with, and was a common law husband with Michael Jordan
