I was sad, too, Susan. I just loved him in "Blazing Saddles". Just seeing his picture on the news made me laugh. Darned good football player, too!

I just saw his pic on Yahoo. I didn't know that was him.
I sure remember him on Webster! What a shame.

I know what you mean Jasdip. He looked pretty rough. Sad. I liked him. Often quote the Mongo only pawn in game of life. Surprising how many people don't remember the line. I think it's a classic. Great movie, great actor, great guy.
