Two Herbs

At last we come to the end of November and the commitment to blog every single day. Today, I dip into my archives to find some old pictures of Unky Herb when he was but a slip of a child - about 1986.  I couldn't decide which of the two was cuter, so I took both and combined them with cybermagic.

It was a cloudy day, but nice enough. I played tennis again at Fort Snelling, and although I was a little fatigued from a busy week, I played well enough and managed to stay upright through all of the competition. One of the gang of geezers brought up a uTube video that seemed intriguing. Joe Kapp, an old time Viking football quarterback, and a fan favorite, got into an altercation with another old time football player at a function in Canada, and it actually came to blows. It was a couple of septuagenarians having at it because of a fifty year old grudge. The other guy, Angelo Musca delivered a late blow to Willie Fleming, one of Kapp's team mates in the 1963 Grey Cup game. The boys should have let it go years ago, but the testosterone got the better of them. They are both 73.

 In the interest of entertainment the video.
