This is a bit off the beaten path for Padrographs. One of the first sports personalities that I was ever aware of was George Blanda of the Oilers and Raiders. I remember when my Dad was stationed at Big Sur, California one of the other officers was a friend of Georges' and I remember going over to the Littles' house and watching home movies of George at Oilers training camp. The Raiders used to be the team I rooted for and I first remember watching them in 1967 with George as the quarterback. Heroes from my childhood are starting to pass away.
