Jim Hudson, Intercepted Pass to Help Jets Win Title, Dies at 70.

 Hudson, a rugged 6 feet 2 inches and 210 pounds, made six tackles in the game (Super Bowl III), and the secondary had four interceptions. Namath completed eight passes to George Sauer Jr., Hudson’s former teammate at the University of Texas. 
 Hudson, Namath and Sauer’s paths to the Jets dated to the night of Jan. 1, 1965, when Namath’s national champion Alabama team played Texas in the Orange Bowl. Jets scouts were on hand to see Namath. But Hudson, who played mainly on defense in his three years with Texas, including their 1963 national championship season, came in as a substitute quarterback when the Longhorns’ starter faltered. Hudson threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to Sauer, helping Texas beat Alabama, 21-17.

From SI’s list of the Top Ten DH’s of All Time, #7: Don Baylor.

Don Baylor passed up on becoming the first black football player at Texas to pursue his baseball career, becoming a premier hitter in his 19-year career. Baylor hit 338 career home runs, hitting 20 or more nine times and recording a career .777 OPS. Baylor also had speed, stealing 285 career bases, including a high of 52 in 1976. The 1979 AL MVP also had a knack for getting beaned, leading the league in hit by pitches eight times. His 267 career beans are the fourth most all-time.

There’s two types of people in this world: Those who think Dabney Coleman was best in “Buffalo Bill,” and those who think he was best in “The ‘Slap’ Maxwell Story.”

Love your library.

Believe it or not, this was Marlon Brando’s little black address book — and it was near and dear to him. The legendary actor scrawled on the flyleaf: “On bended knee I beg you to return this. I lost eight others already and if I lose this I’ll just drop dead!”  But it was never returned.
