Mongo passes | October 11, 2012

Alex Karras was one of my favorite football players of all time. He had a great sense of humor but was not a carouser like I heard him described as today, he in actual fact did not drink. He had very bad eyesight but played poorly the one and only time he wore corrective lens in a game. The eyesight didn’t stop him from being a perrenial all pro defensive lineman but it did once cause him to tackle teamate Wayne Walker after Walker intercepted a pass 🙂 I saw his last game in person with a group of family and friends. It was at Michigan Stadium where the Lions played preseason games in those days. Karras had 3 or 4 sacks and the next day the Lions cut him. (He was not popular with the pro football powers that be at the time). Karras had a very eventful life which he lived to the fullest and I would advise any quarterbacks (or horse’s for that matter) that reside in Heaven to give him a wide berth:)
