Those of a certain age group will remember this tear jerker of a movie.

When I see interviews with the real one I always expect Billy Dee Williams.

I remember reading his bio I am Third (God first, family second) that covered that.

I think it was in the Summer of '69 (nod to Bryan Adams...who was only 10 in '69) that I saw Brian Piccolo and some other Bears play our HS coaches in a basketball game in our gym...likely for peanuts...

So sad to lose Sayers...he and Sweetness...and Butkus, of course...were Chicago Bears football...and always will be...

This is one of the effects of spending time in outer space in zero gravity.  Death is prolonged.

That would mean he was younger when he got back from the moon.

Helen Reddy 78 RIP.
I remember but can't google Bill Murray (I think) doing "I am Woman" with lyrics like "I am woman, Dinah Shore, with numbers too big, Mary Tyler Moore"

Damn.  Always hoped he would get back together with Sammy for one last run.  I hate 2020.  I had that Live Without a Net VHS tape when I was in high school.

Very thankful I got to see this live on the 5150 tour (1985 I think?)
