              Mongo no go...

               

              We're going to let DS watch it for the first time, tonight.  He's almost 12.  There are a lot of comic greats in that film who are no longer with us...Alex, Madeliine, Cleavon, Harvey, Slim, Dom.  When Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder die I expect I will be a wreck.

                and this, also.  I watched this kick as a kid and remember vividly Alex, prior to the play, laughing his ass off that the Saints were attempting a  63 yard field goal.  RIP, #71.
