More cowbell, I mean more Hondo. Frank Howard that is.
Here’s a new Hondo story I heard yesterday.
Randy Ready (aka Mad Max) was the player and Frank was coaching and they’re sitting on the bench watching a game.
Looking out on the play, Frank says, “Max, the way I see it, this game is all about the leather and lumber. If you ain’t doing one, you better be doing the other.”
And then after a few seconds he leaned in to Ready’s ear and said in his deep gravely voice, ” but frankly Max, I’m allergic to leather.”
