  I know Rob G was a good athlete coming out but there's no way he's THAT good.

Or maybe he is that good.

Yes. He is that good. Dude is 6'6" 265 and is athletic as a 6'2" WR. He is a matchup night mare so he is always open. If he is inside, he has a LB or Safety on him, and he can run past them. If they line him up outside, you really can't put a S or LB on him because you are dead, but if you put a smaller corner on him, he can go up and get the ball. Dude is a monster.

It is only nostalgia. 

For me it's "dang, I remember that guy..." 

Keith wasn't really a corporate shill so much.  Well, he did a lot of things for ABC including some memorable baseball games and some IDGAFA NASCAR stuff, so I guess in a way he was. 

But for those of us who are a touch older we remember the days when there was no ESPN, no JP 11 am game.  Every game wasn't televised.  You'd have the one Game of the Week and it would be Keith Jackson calling it. Might be Ohio State/Michigan, might be Tennessee/Georgia, might be OU/Nebraska, might be Auburn/Alabama.  Then you'd have your own team on the radio.  The only time you'd get to SEE Auburn was if you went, if Keith called it or if you watched the Sunday afternoon Review shows. 

So in that respect, I remember Keith with a certain fondness despite his Pac10 leanings and his Al-uhhh-bamuhhhh predisposition.

Well put.

I guess I have to admit it is somewhat nostalgia more than anything like wes said. But I still liked him.

It must be nostalgia more than anything.

I don't get the sense of loss with Jackson or Cronkite or any corporate shill passing.

I miss Jim Fyffe and mourned his passing because of his singular focus in broadcasting: love of Auburn University.

Diff'rent strokes, I guess.

Neighbors pit bull got ran over after the holidays. Recovered from surgery. Saw him chasing cars again yesterday.
Just saying because if you run out of heads I could probably find one for you that might last a while.
Might initially feel the urge to run for the street and sniff assholes but it could be an option.


:huh:    :wtf:

I have it on good authority that Mountain Brook must be recruiting.

He grew up close by in Roopville, GA.  To put it perspective Roopville today would make Slapout look cosmopolitan.
