Johnny U


I feel remiss for not catching that yesterday was the anniversary of Johnny Unitas' birthday in 1933. Unitas would play for the Semi-Pro Bloomfield Rams.... a team whose moniker would be passed on to this bloggers own Immaculate Conception Rams and who also played on Deans field under the Bloomfield Bridge. I doubt Unitas played on the rock hard astroturf that would be put down after it had seen its better playing days used up at Three Rivers Stadium. How small is Pittsburgh? Unitas' coach on the Rams was "the bear" Rogers who would run the Immaculate Conception Athletic Association for years and passed away just a month ago. All of the team's equipment was stored in the Bear's house just down the street from where I live now. It was always an event to go get your equipment for the season by rummaging through his garage. Rummaging being a euphemism for 50 or so pre-teen boys 'negotiating' for the limited number of new helmets each year.

But still it is amazing there was no local notice at all of Johnny U's birthday. I wonder... is Johnny Unitas the best football player to ever come out of Pittsburgh?

I'm going to delete a comment just put up on the grounds of using a fake persona.. on the off chance I am incorrect you can pop me an email so I do not do so again.

Does the continued presence of that comment mean that is was the real Dick Skrinjar?

sorry.. just busy. and I had to ask how to get rid of a comment. It is gone now I think. Have not had any mail from DS himself so I doubt he started his blogging career here... but you never know in this world. Not that I really think anyone was trying to fool anyone else. It was kind of funny but I figure its fair not to have fake comments hanging out there. You never know what the media will pick up on these days and report verbatim.

Unitas was good, but not as good as Marino or Warhol.
