The Year Of Dicks, Day 3!

Some of you may question my decision to bring out the heavy artillery this early, and perhaps you'll be right when the dust has settled, but the heck with it! I'm going to give you all a really big Dick to start the first weekend of 2014!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present College and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Dick Butkus! There's no way I could really do justice to Dick's football career, but there's also no shortage of information out there on it, so I encourage you to seek it out!

Dick didn't just stop at being one of the greatest defensive players of all time, though. Oh, no. He is also a noted thespian!

I can't actually tell you how many times I've seen "Hamburger...The Motion Picture", but it's a lot. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, it was a late night staple on HBO. I also still have a VHS copy of the film around here somewhere. In "Hamburger", Dick plays Drill Sargeant Drootin, a bigoted, hardass instructor at a fast food franchise management college. If that doesn't sell you on finding and watching this whole film by any means necessary, I don't know what will.

(Problems. I have them.)

Gridiron of stage and screen...we love you, Dick!

Update: more on Dick here!  (Thanks to Ritchie for this.)


  1. 6'3". 245. That's a really big Dick. I can think of only one bigger. But he's more of a Richard than a Dick. In any case, I won't mention him here. Carry on.
