one of the most "famous" pictures of my dad was him squatting down in the snow with his timber wolf hybrid "Mike Curtis"

he said that was the meanest SOB he had ever seen play and he always loved that about him.

Missed this: anyone who followed the Senators and baseball back in the day will likely recall Al Kaline of Tigers fame. He passed away 6 Apr.

Discovering the news of his passing this morning, reminds me of how spoiled I was as a young man with my sports' teams.

Wes Unseld passed. That Bulletts team should have won back to back championships, but the Supersonics were pretty good, too.

R.I.P. Wes, and thank you for giving me something to cheer for when I was a kid.

Edit: Wow! Just looked at his stats, he was the NBA rookie of the year and league's MVP in the same year.He was the #2 overall pick behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
