Eller & Lombardi – both defensive linemen in their playing days (Vince at Fordham; he never played in the NFL).
I think it was the great Jack Lambird.
Violet has it both ways, unlike the chap in Snoopy’s famous story: “Edith wouldn’t marry him because he was too fat.” “Why don’t you go on a diet his friend said—you can’t have your cake and Edith too.”
Poor little guy – he even runs a poor fly pattern.
I remember a Monday Night Football game during which the camera focused on a man in the stands holding a sign that read “Will Rogers Never Met Howard Cosell.”
Also the NFL has had a number of barefoot kickers that Woodstock needs to get advice from.
. . . With a most enviable fantasy life (especially these days)!
Lucy is very adept at creating business for her psychiatry stand. Just go over there and whistle and sing a happy tune Charlie Brown. And remember there are millions of us who love you.
I hope you’ve felt like singing often enough Christine that somewhere your mom is smiling and now singing too.
Another great song that could be the music for Snoopy’s story comes from 1960 by Donnie Brooks called “Mission Bell”:
My love is higher than amission Bell/Deeper than a wishin’ well/Stronger than a magic spell . . . .
This reminds me of a song Perry Como had a hit with back in the 1950s: Coo Coo Roo Coo Coo Paloma. Maybe Linus heard it on the radio.
