It's been a while since we had any mention of the Left Guard. I ran across this ad and was taken by the reference to the 1000 Yard Room. It reminded me of all those 1000 Yarder banquets in the 1960's that were held in our own little hometown, to honor the leading rushers of the National Football League with little press coverage. Except for, perhaps, newspapermen in attendance and maybe a quick interview on a Green Bay TV sports cast, they were low key affairs. Can you imagine anything like that happening today, when ESPN sees fit to hold its own award show for athletic achievement in a gigantic venue with superstars from all media in attendance? No sir, those days are long gone.
