First Pack of football cards ever bought had a Johnny U ROOKIE card in it & older brother before that had me already a colt fan Colt Fan ever since . My brother's older friend by 6 years thought it was the coolest thing. I lived in Brooklyn, NY then, now live in LION country & childhood friend lives in Pat country which proves interesting. I am addicted to Peyton and have watched every game to my knowledge since he started his illustrious career.
However am a COLT Fan First
Still remember Superbowl 3 , Namath in one interview actually said he never called the game, he said since press said he did then why not take the credit for it. Saw that in interview while living in NY. K Now i have only seen it once, & don't know if he was joking or meant it , but it was never again seen by me nor anyone else to my knowledge. Too bad Colts brought in a hurt Unitas at end, he may have pulled it out if brought in earlier. He definitely would have seen the easy open receiver for a TD on the flea flicker Earl Moral didn't & that would have won the game.
I am a disabled Dr. who did ankle reconstruction from 1982 to 1988 when I became disabled. Was a short career but made a difference in children's lives who couldn't walk do to birth defects that I surgically repaired. One wrote he is now scoring TD's for me as I cant play sports any longer. Helped out many adults as well with various trauma .
Very proud I made a difference in peoples lives. Exactly what I went to school for, just unfortunately for a short period of time.
WHAT I LIKE TO DO
Concerts and more concerts, seen over 400 Grateful Dead when Jerry was alive and many of the remaining groups concerts as well.
Saturdays taking mom to a movie and dinner. ((( see favorite places for update on this )))
Sundays watching Peyton at work. I have Watched every Colt game Manning has played Via Satellite NFL package and when on reg TV.
IF I COULD GO ANYWHERE
Take My mother to the Dr, find out her MRI showed brain tumor gone.
Unfortunately as I am disabled and help mom with brain tumor most of my time is with Dr's. Love long walks, concerts, great dinners out, movies
and Dinner every Sat with 92 year old Mom , (((( EDIT , However I miss that as Mom Broke hip, had surgery and other Medical needs , was not allowed to return home from sub acute center so now lives in an assisted living facility at age 95 since June of 2013 ( this way in future I dont have to edit each year, will forget ) she is quite happy there and every saturday I am there for hrs in AM & PM, often during the week to and unfortunately to many times to outside Drs in a wheel chair van , oe meeting her for an all nighter at the ER )))
MY and Moms health restricts and my disability restricts many options time-wise . Are other things just hard to get them in. However for someone who medically should be a quadriplegic I look perfectly healthy so cant't complain . I walk,& treadmill when physical disabilities allow me to , and don't let things stop me. Its all in the attitude one faces life with.
Unfortunately disabilities have put a curb on concert going but still manage to get some local ones in, just cant fly to any
Visiting brother, grown nephews & their son my grand nephew, rest of family, Sanibel Island Florida with other graduates from my medical residency
Unfortunately disabilities have put a curb on traveling
( again disabilities now prevents this but what great memories )
Grateful Dead , ZEPPLIN < STONES< PINK FLOYD< THE WHO ., DYLAN< SPRINGSTEEN< CREAM< CLAPTON etc Classic Rock , new stuff is fine as well as is classical.
Not much of a current reader as can get vertigo , Mysteries , action adventure, dramas other Frankenstein when a kid
Great book to read:
JOHNNY UNITAS, AMERICA'S QUARTERBACK forward by Peyton Manning, 2nd forward by Art Donovan
Book written by Lou Sahadi.
Many never before published reminiscences , of course all his records , over 300 pages
1st chapter , greatest game ever played , 25 pages & it just gets better
In the forward by Peyton ( there is another by HOF 'er Art Donovan ) he says when Johnny died he wanted to wear black high tops in his honor but the league said no. IN closing Peyton says that u hear about players from other eras, and some would be good today. well let me tell u theres no wondering about Unitas, he was a superstar then,he would be today as well.
Finally PEYTON SAYS
THE NFL SHOULD NAME AN AWARD AFTER HIM FOR ALL THAT HE'S MEANT. HE PUT FOOTBALL ON THE MAP
