    HOF linebacker Nick Buonticonti passed away today - a member of the last undefeated NFL team. Probably more well known lately for the work he did with paralysis foundations after his son was injured playing football.

    Didn't see this one... I never liked the Raiders, but always thought it was pretty cool the amount of stick 'um that the Raiders WR's and CB's used to use! Lester Hayes and especially Fred Bilintnikoff!

    Former Met pitcher Al Jackson died at age 83. At that time he was about the only thing close to being a star.

    Al Haynes 87 passes away..


    Al Haynes was a United Airlines pilot who made a heroic landing when his DC-10’s engine and hydraulic system failed. Haynes was piloting United Flight 232 on July 19, 1989 when the tail-mounted engine failed, followed by failure of the hydraulic system that allowed the pilots to steer the plane. With 296 people on board the plane, Haynes and his co-pilots — along with Denny Fitch a flight instructor for United Airlines.. who happened to be on board jumped in to help — used throttles and thrust to attempt to guide the massive aircraft to a landing in Sioux City, Iowa. As they approached the runway, landing with no brakes or spoilers, the crew lowered the landing gear to try to counteract some of the shock of impact. But a wing touched the ground, causing the plane to cartwheel. Despite the crash landing, 184 passengers and crew survived. Though Haynes later said he felt guilty about surviving when 112 people died in the crash, he was hailed as a hero for guiding the plane to the ground without further loss of life. He preferred to give credit to the co-pilots and crew for the team effort they put in. After his 1991 retirement, Haynes worked to advance flight safety.

    The reason I posted this my Aunt Jeannie was aboard that flight..........she survived with very minor injuries

    Saw this last night - still see re-runs of these shows occasionally on late night TV on sometimes obscure networks.

    That is an interesting footnote to a passing that probably would have gone unnoticed by the general public.

    Add another RIP to the weekend - Jim Langer - HOF Center from the Dolphins passed away yesterday. Another member of the last undefeated team in the NFL.
