  • Question for the REALLY old timers on this board

    Trivia question for all, but most likely answer will come from someone that has been watching NFL football since the late 1960's/early 1960's. No googling allowed on this one.

    What running back known as "The Human Bowling Ball" does CJ remind you of?

      If you googled, you are disqualified from answering! We will see if anyone else gets it. I am betting on Jorge, i am confident he knows the answer to this one.

          If Jorge does not know the answer, i will reveal! Baltimore colts running back Don Nottingham, aka The Human Bowling Ball. Google him, he ran just like CJ.

            Interesting. And a good question too GC. Thanks for the trivia head scratcher.

            Now that you've given us the clue, I've done a little research; sure enough, Nottingham played in the early 70s: Baltimore Colts from 1970-73; Miami Dolphins, '73-77.

            The RB I was trying to remember (on the tip of my mental tongue), is Charlie Tolar: Houston Oilers from 1960-66.

            Both were indeed known as 'The Human Bowling Ball' in their respective eras.


            Perhaps CJ Anderson will earn the same moniker with the 2018 Rams and knock down many a defensive bowling pin, starting now - well, actually 'two more games' this season.

              I've been calling him Baby Bettis, cuz as a Rams fan who grew up watching in the 80's and 90's, that's who he reminds me of the most. His first start had me saying it. At the game against the Cowgirls, I was yelling it

                Still hard to believe he was cut from two different teams this year. In 3 games with the Rams, he has 422 rushing yards. Holy smokes!

                    by general counsel
                    From the movie arthur, a question worth thinking about (given the boredom of the off season)

                    Do you think that fish get tired of eating seafood?

                    rams trivia question
                    by general counsel
                    Name the only rams general manager who also served as both a general manager of a major league baseball team and as a major league umpire. I wonder if any other person has ever served in all three of those capacities (gm in football, baseball and baseball umpire), i would say it is pretty unlikely.

                    Answer to be posted tonight, but i strongly suspect that given the plethora of knowledge held by the collective clanram, someone will post the answer in the next ten minutes.

                    Question for all, but with a specific focus on those closest to the situation, ie our rambros on the other side of the pond.

                    Was princess diana the victim of a conspiracy or just drunken driving?
