Starting a few abstract threads this weekend. First it was Twinkies, now it's Mike Ditka. My memory of Ditka goes back to the late 50s. I was at a baseball game (I think it was between two Steelworker Union teams .. local 1211 vs 1212) and I remember my dad saying, "See the catcher for Aliquippa? That's Mike Ditka of Pitt."
Get well Iron Mike.
