"Mad Dog" Mike Curtis, former Baltimore Colt, 77. The best ever to play MLB in Baltimore not named Ray Lewis. Was probably most famous for leveling a drunken fan that ran onto the field and stole the football during a game.

Another great from that era is now gone. First Bobby Mitchell about two weeks ago, then Willie Davis last week, and now Mike Curtis. 

 

A sad day for fans of the Baltimore Colts.

Harold Reid of the country group The Statler Brothers died of kidney failure. My mom is a huge fan of theirs and I heard their music all the time growing up. Whether you liked their music or not they were incredible song writers. If you've never heard them go check out Bed of Rose's or Class of '57.

RIP Don Shula.  

 

He was the coach of my Baltimore Colts When I got hooked on Pro Football. 

 

RIP Shoes, truly one of the best coaches the game has seen.

My Mom taught Shula's kids... and Johny Unitas' kids... she said Unitas came to PTA meetings, introduced himself to her ("Hi, I'm John Unitas"... as if everybody didn't know who he was)... she said he had the biggest hands she'd ever seen... (and she's got 2 kids who are 6'8")... she never once saw Shula... but Shula still had a job at the time...

 

I quit caring about Shula when he bailed to the Dolphins... but I never wanted him dead...

Shula almost had an undefeated team here in Baltimore as well. In 1967, Colts were unbeaten through their first 13 games, but still had to face the Rams in the Los Angeles Coliseum in the regular-season finale. The game was, for all intents and purposes, a playoff game, since the winner would be crowned the Coastal Division champion and would then face Green Bay for the Western Conference championship.

 

As was a somewhat recurring theme during Shula's time here in winner-take-all games, the Colts came out flat and were routed by the Rams, 34-10. Ironically, this was the first year that the NFL--which had expanded into four divisions that season--had implemented a tie-breaker system to determine a division champion. The Rams and Colts both finished with 11-1-2 records, but the Rams won the Coastal Division by virtue of having tied and beaten the Colts during their two regular-season matchups. Under the old system, the two teams would have met again in a playoff to determine a winner.

 

In 1967 and 1968 combined, Shula's teams lost only two regular-season games, but came up short when it mattered most. The most shocking, of course, was the Super Bowl III disaster against the Jets in January of 1969. That game marked the beginning of the end of Shula's time in Baltimore.

That entire Rams game was awful... unlike Super Bowl III, it was obvious early on that there would be no comeback... everybody in Baltimore was pumped for it... and then pfffft....

 

After the passing of 50 years, I'd managed to forget all about it... until now... so, thanks a lot...    :wink:
