Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I'll always think of Les Nesmond broadcasting the sports news on WKRP, and pronouncing his name as "Chye Chye ROD-rih-gweez."
Ah, Les Nessman's great mangle job:(with hard, hard I's here) Chii - Chii Rod-rah-gweez.
Is his foot on backwards?
Great minds, Vanwall, great minds....
Oh no! It's Devo!
Saw this man back in the 60's one summer day when he and Al Balding, Julius Boros and Doug Sanders gave an exhibition at the Burlington (Ontario, Canada) Golf and Country club. Balding was the token Canadian tossed into the mix, Boros was as classy and laid back as always, Sanders played the red-panted faded clown but Chi Chi stole the day with his playful demeanor and quick wit.He also explained how he could hit the ball so far with his quick-drop shoulder technique. Amazing!Will never forget it...
One of the great wits of sport. Once he's dining out with friends when an exhibit from the Sex Education series walks by. Once everyone had rolled their tongues back into their mouths, Chi Chi says, "And just think, somebody somewhere is tired of that."
Thanks for that story, Robert. My remembrance of Chi Chi has been further enriched. What a dry wit!
And you know those little Mexican dogs? Chi-hooa-hooas?
Now a days on the pro links the tired guy's name is Tiger.
Good one Steeb, Devo was the first thing I thought of as well.
