  • Perdita vs Butkus

    Say what?


    ""I don't know if the University of Illinois has ever had an athlete as accomplished as she is. I think I could argue
    that pretty easily."

    Pro sports purists jumping into the debate would hand that title to former Chicago Bears great Dick Butkus. This is Big
    10 country, after all, and mammoth Memorial Stadium hovers over campus."

    I have no idea who Dick Butkus is, but I can make a T&F connection to the name. Here's my trivia question:
    The maiden name of which former female world champion is Butkus ?

      In terms of what he accomplished as a pro, Butkus is a quantum leap ahead of Felicien (sorry about that).

          and on the track front with the Illini, I recall a PV'er named Bob Richards.....

            WHAT? How old are you? Or are you non-American? (In which case, it would be perfectly understandable.)

            Butkus was one of the greatest linebackers ever to play American football. He was know for being a particularly vicious hitter, and admitted to having fantasies about hitting someone so hard their head would come flying off. But otherwise, I hear he's a pretty nice guy. :-)

              Amazing as it may be, some people on this board are not American... and yes, I am one of them :-)

                If you're from my generation (born 1974), then you really only know Butkus from appearances on various TV shows in the '80's...

                  I don't think we grew up watching the same TV shows :-D
                  And how the hell did you know I was born in 1974 ? :-O

                    BUTKUS!!!

                    For Pete's sake! The guy only has his OWN collegiate award named after him! The man ranks with Al Oerter in terms of accomplishment, duration, tenacity, and ferocity. A legend.

                      Tell it to someone who cares. And, since this is a T&F board, after all, how about answering my trivia Q ?

                          Not only that, but, unlike everyone else on this board, I still have my own teeth.
