    Johnny U was a class act. I used to go to these autograph signing with my dad, and you would wait in line to get football players autographs. Most of the guys would just sign and off you go, but Jonny took the time to give you an autograph, say hi and shake your hand. Not only that, he would sign for ever single person which was amazing considering he had bad arthritis, and could barely write! He was using his thumb and middle finger if I remember correctly, with his hand trembling. He was a great guy [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    Bow your heads.

    The Captain of the football team has just passed away.

    We love you Jonny U.

    I regret not being able to see the man play during his prime, but at my age I was born after he retired.

    But watching film of him, I can get some idea of his football greatness.

    God bless Johnny U.

    He was an OG quarterback. Tough, smart, and knew the game. When one starts talking all time QB's, his name always comes up for obvious reasons. Hell he only threw for 40,000 some odd yards back when numbers didn't matter.

    Rest in peace Johnny U. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] Out.

    very sad about unitas... [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    great tributes by the colts...I can't believe the league wouldn't let Peyton Manning wear black hi tops. why the hell not?
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.
    -Lewis Tully in Ghostbusters
