The Good, Old Days

Dear Future:

You are going to read a lot of stuff from our time talking about all of our problems, and all of that stuff is pretty much going to be correct. But let me add, too, that, boy, oh, boy, do we ever live in a fantastic age!



  1. Somewhere around this time, my dad reported in our house that he had "heard" that Bob Griese had "spent the whole summer letting his hair grow long and running around on the beaches" in Florida. This is, of course, not an exact quote, but it's pretty close. Anyway, my guess is that it was after Griese's rough start in this Monday-night season opener that Dad broke this story.

    Dad's network of unnamed sources was far-reaching. He also reported all kinds of scoops about Dan Pastorini, Joe B. Hall, Bob Green, President Reagan, etc.
