I believe this is from the 1984 NFC Championship between the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers, but I don't know for sure. But something tells me that there might be a few Bears out there. So feel free to weigh in if you know that this is either from 1984 NFC Championship, 1985 regular season, or perhaps a different game. The 1984 NFC Championship was a battle of 2 great defenses. But as 49er fans will tell you (and I'm not one of them) the Bears offense forgot to show up. Bears QB Jim...
I don't know this for a fact, but I believe this is also from the Bears 44-0 victory over the Cowboys, at Texas Stadium from 1985. Walter Payton had a good game. Actually, QB Steve Fuller even though he got off to a good start and Cowboys defense played well early in the game, especially the 1st quarter, played well also. He completed some passes down the field, including a TD pass and made some plays on the run. But of course its Buddy Ryan's 46 defense that was the story of this game. All...
I saw the 1985 Bears-Cowboys game from Texas Stadium, on YouTube a couple months ago. I might be in a slim minority on this and I'm not even a Cowboys fan, but I really don't believe, if you look at the two rosters that year, that the Bears were that much better than the Cowboys in 85. I think the Bears were just that great on defense in that game. It took the Cowboys 2 quarters to make any adjustments at all, against the Bears outside, red dog, blitz. Bears LB Otis Wilson (55 in the photo...
Anyone who knows their NBA history, who loves NBA history, knows who the two main characters in this photo are. The Celtics-Pistons rivalry officially started with the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals, but it was already there before that, probably since since 1984, since they had a hard fought, physical playoff series in 85. The Larry Bird Celtics, were the standard, that Bill Laimbeer and he Pistons were trying to accomplish for themselves.
The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, I believe from the 1986 NBA regular season, when the Celtics swept the Lakers and beat them at the Great Western Forum. It's such a shame that Bill Walton didn't have stronger feet, because if he played a normal career in games and years, I think we're talking about the 2 best centers and perhaps 2 best players in NBA history, Walton and Jabbar. Walton was a 6'11, 240 pound Larry Bird. He was that great when it came to eye-hand coordination and...
Anyone who thinks Robert Parish wasn't a great defensive player, is either high, drunk, stupid, crazy, doesn't know enough about basketball, or perhaps all of those things in a big juicy pot. But even the greatest NBA defensive centers (and Parish is one of those players) couldn't stop the GOAT NBA center and player Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

The Doctor of Sky and Dunk Julius Erving and the Philadelphia 76ers, vs Greg Ballard and the Wizards, at the Capital Centre. Don't know the year and date of this photo. This was one of the best rivalries in the NBA, at least in the Eastern Conference, in the 1970s and 80s.

Here's a great off-guard matchup. Sidney Moncrief and the Milwaukee Bucks, vs Jeff Malone and the Wizards (as they're now called) at the Capital Centre. Two of the best two-way guards in the NBA from the 1980s. Both excellent scorers and defenders.

Hollywood Babydoll Gloria Grahame in Odds Against Tomorrow from 1959. Her role in this film is so small (our deep loss) that I wasn't sure there would be any solid GIF's with her in the film. George Tyerbyter: Starring the incredibly talented Harry Belafonte and directed by the great Robert Wise, it’s “Odds Against Tomorrow” (1959)—an especially dark, small-budget noir heist film that packs a big wallop! In the scene above, sexual tensions run high and things get out-of-hand as the next-door..
Hollywood Goddess Linda Darnell and actor Dana Andrews, in Zero Hour, from 1957. Two Hollywood actresses that did the "I'm scared look" or the terrified look perfectly, were Ruth Roman and Linda Darnell. Maybe it's because they both had those big adorable cheeks and eyes, as well as sweet, sexy voices. Wayne Brooker: "Zero Hour 1957, Dana Andrews"
If I had to put together a list of the top 5-10 Columbo movies from the 1970s together, Lovely But Lethal would be on it. Viveca Scott (played by Vera Miles) comes off as so cute and sweet, but she's a real bad girl in the film. Vincent Price Legacy: "When Jenny Hammerton at Silver Screen Suppers was preparing her latest cuinary adventures, Cooking with Columbo: Suppers With the Shambling Sleuth, she invited friends and fellow Columbo fans to te…
