Alex Karras

  •  

    Alex Karras passed away yesterday a great football player but more famous for his acting abilities. Alex had one of he greatest golf quotes ever, "My best score is 103 but I have only been playing for 15 years." He also played the husband in the movie "Babe". No Devin the one about Babe Didrikson not the pig. However he will best remembered for playing one of the all time great characters of the western film genre, MONGO!

    Alex was one of the more colorful co-announcers on MNF.  In both College and Pro Football Halls of Fame.  Sad to see him go so early.  Hope his family gets some positive results from the NFL.
