I lived a few houses down on Euclid near Comstock. Your post reminded me that near that intersection I almost crashed my $500 Ford Falcon going about 50 with a stuck accelerator peddle.The owner was a former football player. I want to say Gary Bugenhagen, but it's been a long time. The chef's salad had one inch cubes of ham, turkey and swiss that we would carve on a deli meat cutter and then slice by hand. The Reubens were outstanding, grilled on dark bread under an open flame. The french onion soup was really good, too. My first cook's job was in the dining halls at Cornell, but this was my first paid cook's job. After summer was over, I went back to school to finish up my senior year.
Post-graduation, the next summer I worked at Dominick's, then at Kirby's, before moving down to NYC.
Fortunately it was during the day and I had enough on the ball to throw it into neutral. The engine reamed out but didn't blow and I turned the key off and coasted to the curb. I drove for a week with a sock on my R-foot untiil I got it fixed (spring for $5).I’m giving you a “like” cause you’re alive to even tell that story. Yikes!
It was Rob Conrad, who was also the last player to wear 44.The Orange became 44s later on and was co-owned by a former football player that I believe was a running back.
He said in the presser that they are trying to stable two different types of TE... The offensive edge route runner and receiver type... And the battering ram lead blocking type...Maybe they're looking for a TE JUCO or GT while Benson gets time in the oven. Pierce is graduating. Horan is 260 and may be moving inside. Rex is there for depth, and Hackett had some production towards the end of the season, but the numbers are thin if the above is true. tep624 might know, or PhatOrange.
At 260 Horan isn't moving inside anytime soon. He needs 30-40 more pounds. With Hackett, Horan and Benson we're still alittle thin at TE. I think he wants to use the TE more but wants more quality depth. Horan even up to 280 is a solid blocking TE and could benefit from some play action. He stays at TE at least this year for sure.Maybe they're looking for a TE JUCO or GT while Benson gets time in the oven. Pierce is graduating. Horan is 260 and may be moving inside.

Why did Sutters close?I used to cook there in the summer of '80 or '81, and it was my late night dance club on the Hill that summer, when I lived at the corner of Euclid and Comstock. When we would go out, we would go downstairs to Chuck's for a sub and a pitcher and then go upstairs to try to pick up girls at Sutter's.
