    True or false

    Back in the day there were two HS hurdlers from San Jose, Dedy Cooper and Bill "spider" Gaines. They were in the same league.

    So in that league meet they ran a dead heat, yep...tie.

    At the Fresno meet....a dead heat, another tie.

    Then at the state meet, yep...another dead heat, another tie.
    True or False?

    When Judy and Avante entered the Grand Ball to dance and put the crowd in awe, Avante’s dental procedure was fully underway.

    Remember that Dedy Cooper vs Bill Gaines question?

    1 Robert Gaines Kennedy NC 13.3 120HH 1975
    2 Dedy Cooper Ells NC 13.3 120HH 1975 NR in trials (13.2)
    3 John Peterson Saddleback S 13.3 120HH 1975
    4 Wilbur Gregory Mission Viejo S 13.6 120HH 1975
    5 Ron Kennedy Serramonte CC 14.0 120HH 1975
    6 Dennis Claxton Skyline O 14.2 120HH 1975

    I saw the Fresno meet, they ran stride for stride the entire race, it was as if they were attached at the hip. One of tracks little oddities.

    Dude, if you would have took the time to actually checkout that bogus info you'd found this.....

    Jack Squat

    Squat started out as a pole vaulter before realizing he was afraid of heights, so he needed another event. This landed him in the mile.....but....running around in circles made him dizzy, so there that went. Not one to give up or in he switched to the sprints. Here he finally found his true calling. Three times he broke that Bluffton school record, ended up with a 9.6. Elbert "Golden Wheels" Dubenion (Bufalo Bills WR) the guy who had held the record was at that meet.

    Squat, was known for his rocket start and his shoes, he ran in tennis shoes.

    Three times he won the Northern League 100 and 200 champs. And if he hadn't been drafted into the Army right out of Bluffton no telling where his sprinting would have taken him.

    He was shot and killed by a fellow USA soldier in Korea, he mistook him for a Gook. Squats mom was Chinese.

    Obviously more about Jack Squat can be found here.

    Talking about old "Golden Wheels" Dubenion got me thinking about speedy Buffalo Bills.

    Clyde Glosson was a National caliber cat out of Texas Western (UTEP) back in the day, a legit 9.3 cat.

    ASU's J.D. Hill another 9.3 speedster, Hill like "Golden Wheels" and Glosson a WR.

    O.J.Simpson ran a 9.4 while at SFCC, and ran on a USC WR 4x1 team.

    WR Sammy Watkins a Florida HS 200m champ.

    WR Robert Woods,the top HS400m cat in the nation.

    WR Marquiez Goodwin an Olympic long jumper with sun10.20 jets.

    Who am I forgetting?

    "Golden Wheels"

    Elbert Dubenion (born February 16, 1933), nicknamed "Duby" or "Golden Wheels", was an American football wide receiver. He played college football for Bluffton College (now Bluffton University) in northwest Ohio.
    As a rookie for the American Football League's Buffalo Bills in 1960, DuBenion had seven touchdowns and 752 receiving yards on 42 catches, a 17.9 yd/catch average. He ran 16 times for 94 yards and a touchdown, a 5.6 yd/carry average. In 1961, facing tighter and deeper coverages, he upped his production as a runner, rushing for 173 yards and a touchdown on just 17 carries, a 10.3 yd/carry average. He had 31 catches for 461 yards and six touchdowns.


    One of the great looking football cards is his rookie card, the classic WR all laid out making the catch...ah...with his helmet off.

    Obviously can;'t talk the Buffalo Bills with no mentoin of Cookie Gilchrist. A 250 pound monster with speed back in the 60's.

    Gilchrist is still the only pro football 1000 yard rusher (first in the old AFL) who went straight from HS to pro football...CFL. He was a great RB (fullback) his size/speed combo was amazing. And, he also kicked.




    His rookie card is.....THE....pose, it gets no better than this, and it is right there with my Montana, Jim Brown and Rice rookie cards.

    Normal people are very capable of talking about the Buffalo Bills without mentioning Cookie Gilchrist.

    Normal people dont talk Tom Savage as being the best QB in Texas...PERIOD!

    Normal people don't call a guy with NFL records, NFL firsts, a TON of $$$$$$, a good looking woman , a SB Champ...."struggle". If that is a "struggle"...we should all struggle.

    Normal people don't....bench Cam Newton, we need Derek Anderson.

    Normal people don't bah humbug. you're a faggot, 80% of their waking hours.
