Re: How did you come up with your Screen Name?

May 27, 2019 04:13AM
Became a fan of the Los Angeles Rams in 1969 - or was it '68? I may have cheered them in 68 but became a rabid Rams fan in 69.

I grew up in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, and my best friend was Brook Pardee, nephew of Jack Pardee who played LB on the George Allen over the hill Redskins gang. Jack was traded to the Rams after Allen left WA and came to LA. Brook unfortunately passed away as a child, from a brain tumor I think. Anyway he and I loved the horns on the helmet and how they looked just like a Ram when the linemen were set at the snap of the ball.

The 69 Rams started out 11-0 in a 14 game season before losing in the 12th game to the Vikings, and again in the playoffs to the same team. As a 9 year old, I hated the Vikings!! I used to cut out Rams' stories from the NY Times and glue them to my wall. Mom was none too pleased when we finally had to clean it up.

Now I live in Seahawks country, Bellevue WA, across the lake from Seattle, but the good news is that my 12 year old son has joined me in supporting the Rams as our fav sports team.
