    Didn't he and Dick Butkus (sp?) get in a brawl in a Detroit tavern once upon a time? Seems I remember reading about it.

    I was a young kid growning up in Maryland in 1963. Washington Redskins sucked,
    Johnny U and the Colts were great. Best news I heard for '63...

    Paul Hornung (the Packers) and Alex Karras (the Lions) were suspended for the entire '63 season for gambling on football games.

    Karas and Butkus had a classic rivalry (Bears vs Lions) and it usually peaked during the annual Thanksgiving Day game. karas I think was the first legitimate Actor via NFL. The only man who could punch out a horse.
