    I hated him as a Steeler. (And I don't normally throw the hate word around, but I truly mean it when I say I hated Franco Harris.) Could I learn to accept him as a Senator? If he retired Arlen Specter, probably so... but if he were running in my state, he'd have to publicly say the Renfro catch was good before I could vote for him.

    Oh, and in anticipation of the inevitable grumbling about qualifications from our friends on the RNC payroll, let me just add...

    Jim Bunning, Lynn Swann, Jack Kemp, J.C. Watts, Mike Ditka, Tom Osborne, Steve Largent.

    And don't forget the actors... Ronnie, Arnie,and Sonny. Not to mention the failed sportscaster/DJ/college drop-out that currently runs the Republican Party.

    Is Obama delegate Kwame Kilpatrick eligible to run in this race?

    I'm disappointed. I thought this thread was going to be about Francisco Franco.

    According to news reports he is still dead. ;)


    Yeah I couldn't support any of the Stealers from the Luv Ya Blue era.

    Just curious. How many people know what Rimrocker and I are referring to?

    You're talking about the SNL weekend update with Francisco Franco still being dead right?

    Or did you just mean Francisco Franco in general?

    Didn't he die from a land shark attack?

    Yep.

    I was just curious if anyone under 30 even gets that reference.
