    Richie Pace. Can't remember Dub's last name.

    I think Dub was "Fricker." Which I love.

    Someone told me Lupica was seriously pissed when the book came out.

    Moddy, I believe the Dub character was based on Hubert Mizell, not Furman.

    You may be right - I just knew it was an older, southern gentleman type and had heard several times it was Furman. Hubert would fit as well as Furman. Interesting trio of running mates, for sure.

    Given the extent to which DJ has inspired Lupica's second career to the extent he has, Mikey should genuflect at length whenever DJ's name is mentioned.

    If he doesn't feel this level of gratitude, he's delusional . . . oh, wait . . .

    Shit, I think I was that list one time at Nye's. And again in Louisville. But not in Missoula.

    This from Big 'Un Darly, sports editor of the Claybelle Times-Standard in Jenkins' Fast Copy.

    Purple sage and bronco-bustin football rode into Claybelle last night, and yippie-ti-yi-yee if the hell-for-leather Yellow Jackets didn't upset the vaunted Pascal Panthers 6-0 in an earthquake of an upset, you bet!

    Paschal won the toss and elected to receive. The wind was out of the southeast. Claybelle kick to Paschal who receive. Schilder up the middle for 2. Kring off tackle for 5. Schilder around end for 6. Schilder no gain. Offsides Jackets. (Bad call). ...
