Here's a great shot of the Fearsome Foursome, featuring Merlin Olsen, who passed away yesterday. Kinda hard to look scary with a uke in your hand. I wasn't an Olsen fan, he was a bit before my time. But in reading up on the man, he seemed a fellow worth knowing.

74 - Olsen; 75 - Deacon Jones; 85 - Lamar Lundy; 76 - Rosey Grier

Wow, 3 ukes and a guitar.

I grew up watching Roman Gabriel and the Los Angeles Rams.

I thought their helmet design was so neat when they went into their 3-point stance.

RIP to a great player and a wonderful person.

He was a pretty good actor, too. I really liked him in Little house on the Prarie...he will be missed.:(
