well, yes that is a great story. Certainly memorable! As a lifelong Irish fan I was really perplexed by the overall lack of press around this great legend's death. We've certainly sold millions of magazines with the covers of less.
What people may not know (those under 65) - he's in the HOF collegiately as a QB, in the Pro football HOF as a running back. He also kicked field goals and punted.
And as ou'd expect as a Louisville native, loved his horseplaying.

I think the last time I heard Paul speak was when Nebraska created a "red out" at ND Stadium. He simply could not understand the Irish fans scalping that amount of tickets. Neither could I . I think he left NBC right after that season.

The Cassidy story is classic. Jerry, I almost spit out my 6th cup of coffee this am laughing at the "..but he's training great" line. Good laugh to start the day, thanks for sharing this.
