    And you get a gold star for the day for knowing that! Most people now days have no idea who he was........ 1970 AL MVP.
    That's why my HS friends nicknamed me Boog, cause I can swing a mean stick/maul too :cool:. Ah, maybe the girth around the middle had something to do with it too...........

    That's crazy. I don't remember not knowing how to swing a maul....although I do remember breaking a few handles.

    After my turkey dinner I busted out the FIL's 025 and bucked an oak he had felled in march/april 50 yards from his deck, leaves all brown and fairly dry already, other than the crown and the stump that was left. Then proceeded to split the ~1/8-1/4 cord, with a few beer breaks in-between. It sure beat sitting on the couch, and plus the Pats game didn't start till 8.
