    Shouldn't you be hate-masturbating to the Bartman clip?

    According to a story I read, Karras didn't even bother to rush Tom Dempsey because he thought a 63-yard attempt was preposterous.

    Thinking the best for him in (what appears to be) his final days. Although he wasn't there for long (74-76), I liked him in the Monday Night Football booth. He and Howard had some good banter and he always remarked the players made too much money (mid-70s money, of course). I even recall Howard would call him Mongo in the booth.
