Gale Sayers - RIP

Post by koimaster » September 23rd 2020, 8:58am

Gale Sayers, the will-o-the-wisp running back who in a short but brilliant career with the Chicago Bears left opponents, as they used to say, clutching at air, died on Wednesday. He was 77.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

On another note, back in the day, Sears had a catalog that they would mail out to us folks..the delivery of the same meant something special to those of us living in rural areas..while many of us used older versions of it for a toilet paper substitute(when necessary), new arrivals were something to look forward to..Craftsman tools, Kenmore appliances, etc..well, Sears used pics of Gale Sayers to sell their suits, their dress jackets, etc..still remember those days of looking and dreaming about dressing as well as Gale did..on a similar note, Sears used Ted Williams to sell their Baseball gear..those were the days, my friend(s)..

The hours I spent as a kid looking at the toys in those catalogs. Yep, do remember Sayers in suits. And every season getting a new version of the catalog.

As I got older I became fascinated with the women’s undergarments and bathing suit photos in the same catalogs. Was pre-internet porn for kids who couldn’t get ahold of Playboy/Penthouse/Hustler.
