One of Texas Christian University’s first bona fide legends, “Slingin’ Sammy” Baugh, has passed at the age of 94.
Sammy Baugh was the last surviving member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s inaugural class.
After starring at TCU, “Slingin’ Sammy” Baugh played with the Redskins from 1937 to 1952.
While he was noted for his passing, Baugh was one of the best all-around players of his day. One season he led the league in passing, defensive interceptions and punting. In one game, he threw four touchdown passes and intercepted four passes. He threw six touchdowns in a game – twice – and kicked an 85-yard punt.
Sammy Baugh was an outstanding punter, quarterback and defensive back for TCU in the mid-1930s.
“There’s nobody any better than Sam Baugh was in pro football,” Don Maynard, a fellow West Texas Hall of Famer who played for Baugh, said in a 2002 interview. “When I see somebody picking the greatest player around, to me, if they didn’t go both ways, they don’t really deserve to be nominated. I always ask, ‘Well, how’d he do on defense? How was his punting?”‘
Godspeed, Sam. We coulda used a man of your skill & heart against Boise, and beyond. We’ll miss you down here.

Denizens, remember when Shrubya was first inaugurated? The streets of DC were lined with limp-wrists, pussies, chickenshits and other assorted leftist bastards protesting Bush’s victory.
(Side note to leftard fucksticks: It’s been eight years not, and Bush still has never trailed in Florida. Suck it, asswads! )
Remember, too, how the Lame Stream Mediots were all over it like white on rice?
Fast-forward eight years, and now one of the same extra-chromosome leftard rags that shrieked from the rooftops about how dissent was “patriotic” and “American” and all…won’t even allow so much as a critical paid advertisement during the
inauguration coronation of the Ayatollah Obambi.
“Dissent is the highest form of patriotism,” the Left was found of reminding us again and again during the Bush administration, particularly after the commencement of hostilities in Iraq. So now that Barack Obama is assuming office on January 20, surely patriotic liberal newspapers like the Washington Post will publish paid classified advertisements by conservatives that are critical of the soon-to-be-inaugurated President Obama, right?
Eh, not so much, reports FishbowlDC, noting that the fine print for the Washington Post’s inaugural congratulations classifieds holds that “all ads must be congratulatory in nature” and that the Post “reserves the right to reject any notice.”
Meaning that the “notices” that WaPo
op will “reserve the right to reject” will all be the ones critical of Flopears McHopenchange, of course. Can’t have any negativity surrounding the MESSIAH!!!. Wouldn’t be patriotic, y’know.
But I’d love to see their reaction the next time one of their
partisan hacks reporters got hauled up short on something and started caterwauling about “free speech”, y’know?
