Long live Bailey.
Have a good night everyone. Have I mentioned I hope you read the Ref Series? Part 1 of 3 is here: http://t.co/x3ta2YhO94
Flyin' was one hell of a special-teamer for those Bengals, and one very, very nice man.
Flyin' 8: "That ... wasn't ... no ... nice ... thing ... you ... wrote." And he walked back onto the practice field.
Flyin' 7: Kbrew walks over to me, menacingly. Looks like he wants to deck me. Comes within 6 inches of my face. Pauses. Says slowly: ....
Flyin' 6: Mike Brown fines Kbrew $500 for violating dietary restrictions by eating the 6 burgers. So, at practice that afternoon ...
Flyin' 5: I was ghostwriting Pillman's Rookie Diary in CinEnquirer as young Bengal beat man. He told me. I wrote it. And the next day ...
Flyin' 4: At first he refused. But then he handed over the burgers. Kinnebrew scarfed. Pillman went to bed hungry. The next day ...
Flyin' 3:He was walking into dorm w/huge sack of burgers. Kinnebrew, famished (salad was all he ate there), ordered Flyin': "Gimme the bag."
Flyin' 2: One night at camp in Wilmington, Ohio, Pillman ran over to McDonalds and bought 6 cheeseburgers. Brought them back to his dorm.
Flyin' 1: Pillman, trying make club as 218-lb LB, was under orders to gain weight. Fatso FB Larry Kinnebrew was under orders to lose weight
I covered Flyin' Brian in 1984, when he was a UDFA LB from Miami (Ohio) trying to make Bengals. Want to hear a great Pillman story?
RT @mchappell51: Blandino: There was not enough evidence to overturn the ruling on the field ... No Duh interpretation of the year.
