Uncle Jack

This is my Uncle Jack visiting us when we lived on Lexington Ave.

I promised in a post HERE that I would post some clippings form his college days and when he was drafted to play for the Los Angles Rams.

Here they are.

This ones great. It starts like this:

"Despite his massive 6-3, 220-pound hulk. Kentucky tackle Jack Butler is nimble afoot and treads his way around accurately through a crowded football field to unwind around the ball carrier.
There are two reasons in his background for this.

1. The sophomore fom Tompkinsville is a square-dancing addict, hence agility.

2. He comes from a farming family of 10 - six boys and four girls - and hence a mob doesn't bother him at all."

They don't write articles like that anymore.

Just click on the pictures to enlarge them.

Dad was really proud of his big brother's accomplishments....and rightly so.
