    Perhaps he can be reanimated to inspire Charlie Weiss' boys.

    No, really, poor George is being exhumed by his family for DNA testing.

    Why it the world they're really doing this, no one is willing to say.

    But ESPN will be there to film the whole thing! (Not a joke; actually happening.)

    "We go now to Roger Cossack, who says it is indeed legal to exhume a body."

    David Aldridge is reporting that George Gipp plans to give a speech.

    More on this breaking story as it develops...

    That's strange to have a Traverse City dateline on that story. Gipp's hometown is in the Upper Peninsula and the paper quoted in the article is in the UP.

    Flesher is pretty much based in Traverse City, although he covers most of northern Michigan. Obviously the story was a rewrite, but why put a Traverse City dateline on it?

    Stephen A Smith says:"That's totally inappropriate. It's lewd, lascivious, salacious, outrageous!"

    Sorry, Jackie would be pissed, he's clearly better informed than Screamin A.

    Hell, at least South Bend isn't calling Uncle Lou. I've been watching this Pitt game and I swear for the first time that I don't have a clue what the hell Lou is talking about in the booth. That crazy old man has gone senile.
