Can I get league points for a DCS win?
Tom, I came to PCF a long time ago just so I wouldn't have to be continually tortured by your Hitching Post topic in the other forum. And now you're here. And now I see you have an original Larry Csonka jersey, too (I'm originally from South Florida).
Thanks for that.
My father's favorite player! He and my mom used to have season tickets back in '72 and we were raised on Csonka stories.
Two of my favorite all-time interviews are Csonka related.
1) I remember some idiot being interviewed by a relatively knowledgeable sportscaster. Asked about Csonka, the idiot said, "He's slow." Knowledgeable sportscaster replied, "Yeah... he's slow... like a tank."
2) Sportscaster was interviewing Larry Csonka, and noted that Larry didn't have too many fancy moves. Csonka replied with a smile, "Nah... I pretty much just run straight ahead. I hit them. And they remember."
OH... and small world... Key West Dennis's uncle was John Sandusky - Don Shula's offensive coordinator for the Dolphins from around 1976 to 1994 (among other previous history with Shula).
The Hitching Post actually owes itself more to my wife than anything else.
First of all, whether you wife really had anything to do with the inspiration for the "Hitching Post" or not... WELL PLAYED!
Second, on a more serious note, thanks for sharing the story about your Mom. It sounds like she was a special woman, and that you were lucky to have each other.
I would love to make the trip back east to Atlanta in April, and if I can swing it between some other events in April, I certainly will, and will confirm as soon as I'm able. If I make it, I will do my best not to pocket some of those cash set chips, but I make no promises!
