The Show With No Name was LIVE at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center. It went by another name this morning though. The Artist Formerly Known as The Outlaw Tommy Smith, called it a Candy Store. A Razorback Candy Store! The Candy Store......er.....uh....Cultural Center, is the home to The Museum of African American History. Thanks to Muskie Harris, it also houses The Arkansas African American Sports Center. This year brought in the Razorback football teams that I grew up watching, living, and dying with. The 1976 Cotton Bowl team that destroyed the Georgia Bulldogs 31-10 and the 1978 Orange Bowl team that shocked the world (the world I lived in anyway) and embarrassed the Oklahoma Sooners 31-6!
Ike Forte, William Watkins, and Scott Bull. Do those names ring a bell? What? You are a Razorback lover ain't ya?! Lets try again with, Johnnie Meadors, Dennis 'Dirt' Winston, Leotis Harris, and Ron Calcagni. Yea that's what.........Do What?! You have got to be kiddin' me! Last chance or you will have to turn in your Arkansas Razorback man fan card and underwear! Roland Sales? 1978 Orange Bowl MVP. He didn't do much or really anything after that but, who cares. He did all he needed to do to make him a Razorback legend. He rushed for a record 205 yards in that Orange Bowl. I think that was finally broken 10 years or more later but, that doesn't count. It doesn't count because we are Hog fans and besides, it was only surpassed by a couple 2 or 3 yards anyway. Agreed?That's what I thought.
Now I would be remiss if I didn't mention our very own Razorback, Davis Bazzel. Baz was the youngest of our favorite team in the whole world at today's event. And I'm pretty sure the only one to appear in 4 bowl games. As a matter of fact, that is unless my facts are wrong, H. David Bazzel may be the only one of the fellas to beat those egg sucking Texas Longhorns too! BOOOOM!!!
In the photo to the left is, Ike,William, Roland, Johnnie, Muskie, and David. Also, standing back there is Tommy Smith. And kneeling in front, so as not to overshadow the team of Hogs, ME!
It was an awesome experience to meet the first Razorbacks that I grew up idolizing. And like you, I do the same every year with the new batch of players. It's a gift that the other states in this wonderful country of ours doesn't have the pleasure of knowing. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
WOO PIG SOOIE!!!
Have A Great Weekend!
Tommy, David, RJ, and myself thank you for listening and making The Show With No Name your #1 station!
