    Re: Gene Upshaw Passes Away

    I just got home and saw it on the ticker. The world has lost another great, great man. he has done a lot for the league when he played and even more after his playing career ended.

    RIP

    LOL.
    Hey my friend, the good lord promised us a heck of a lot more than 63.
    In fact, didn't he take Moses a bit early at the spry young age of 800ish?
    ;D

    Of course that is all tied to living and eating right which the good lord knows I haven't done so I will be happy with something in the 80's to 90's.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I think having Robert Smith take his place would be a good move.. You can't go wrong when you elect a viking. Look at Alan Page

    Good for honouring him. Are they having moment of silence at every game week 1?
