Happy Birthday to the Big Fella

It's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's birthday.

Growing up a Boston Celtics fan, Jabbar was always the enemy, but over time, my respect for him as a player and as a man grew and grew. He strikes me as a athlete who was much more than that-as great as he was, he has gone on to be much more than that.


  1. I hope you got that reference?

  2. I'm afraid I did not...Is it "Airplane"? I haven't seen that in a while.

  3. "The Stand" TV miniseries based on Stephen King's novel. I had forgotten about Airplane! Good reminder.

  4. Ah. I read the book...the long, unexpurgated one....but never saw the film. Great story.
