    I know this has nothing to do with basketball, but I feel it is appropriate to comment on.    Today, we lost a great football player in Alex Karras.  He died of kidney failure after suffering from dementia.

    After his football career, he started acting.  As you can tell from my username, I love the movie Blazing Saddles - where Karras wonderfully played the role of "Mongo".  I will remember that role forever......RIP Mongo.

    I loved watching him play....anyone else remember the 1962 Thanksgiving day game where the Lions sacked Bart Starr seven times....?

    He was great in Blazing Sattles....also on TV as "Webster's" adopted father.....

    I remember when he and Paul Hornung were suspended for gambling in 1963...

    RIP Alex.....you were one of the great one's...!!
