Out take with Tim Conway

I had forgotten just how funny Tim Conway was on the Carol Burnett Show. Conway destroys his castmates during a "Mama's Family" sketch on the show by refusing to let the scene continue until he can finish a story about a circus elephant.

Hope you enjoy.

A Blast from the Past

Many younger Cub fans probably don't realize that the singing of Take Me Out to the Ball Game during the 7th inning stretch was not a Cub tradition, but a White Sox ritual that was started with Harry Caray when he announced for the South Siders. It went with Harry when he switched ends of town. Sorry Cub Fans... Here is a video of Harry when he was still good.

The best there ever was...

As I am getting ready to watch the Bears first pre season game, I think back to my childhood and remember the thrill of watching Dick Butkus. There has never been anybody that played the game any meaner or harder. This video brings back a lot of memories. Hope you enjoy.

Bear Down!
