Last week's question, "Who was the only Jet in the 20th century to score four touchdowns in a single game?"  The correct answer was Wesley Walker .  In a wild 51-45 overtime win over the Dolphins in 1986, Walker hauled in six passes for 194 yards and the 4 TDs. His third touchdown of the game forced overtime and his fourth won the game. This was sweet redemption for Walker since he had fumbled late in the fourth quarter to set up Miami's go ahead TD.

When he retired, he had caught 438 passes for 8306 yards and 71 touchdowns.  Walker is now a retired physical education teacher at Park View Elementary School in Kings Park, New York, and an occasional sports radio show commentator. He has two sons and a daughter. His older son, John, was a 3x All-American lacrosse player at The United States Military Academy at West Point. His younger son, Austin, played lacrosse at Johns Hopkins University. He is also the godfather of Alexandra Florant, the daughter of the track and field star Carl Florant.  Like many former NFL players, Walker suffers from a variety of ailments as a direct result from his playing days, which he detailed in a revealing 2016 interview with Long Island Pulse Magazine.

This week's question is, "What NFL team was the firsr to have an insignia on their helmet?"  (Bonus points for year and the artist).

a.  Browns
b.  Rams
c.  Cardinals
d.  Bears
e.  Giants  

All trivia answers should be submitted to E.A. Presley.  This week's winners will receive a copy of  "Kitty's Guide to Smiling at One and Five."


This week's checklist:

1.  Make sure you check your roster prior to Thursday games to make sure you don't lock in or lock out  the wrong player.  Your other players for
     Sunday and Monday will lock in at 12:59 Sunday morning (with the exception of those goofy early European games that the NFL schedules).

2.   Kalish is Pete's ( back up if for some reason you have to get a hold of the league office before game time (or go on record)

3.  Karl's quick tutorial on the "My Fantasy League Software,

4.  League Entry is $120.  Free agents, $5 a pop.  You can pay me in advance or wait.  Just don't leave me hanging at season's end.

      do offer the FlashFox browser now for anDroid.

       (Note there is a MyFantasyLeague available in your app store).  The link above is a nice clean look for my taste.
7.  I like to listen to live updates on my PC with the GameDay Program, download here GAMEDAY APP.  Great App, it is Microsoft based....
     Use League ID 13439 when prompted.
Turn up the volume and enjoy.

Chuck Berry's Last Album

Rock and roll legend (or maybe that should read “rock and roll inventor”) Chuck Berry recently turned 90. Most 90-year-olds are lucky if they can get out of bed, but Berry evidently intends to go out with a bang. A bang called Chuck, which he announced on his birthday will be the name of his upcoming, and final, record. Berry’s last studio album came out in 1979, so Chuck has certainly been a long time coming.
In a statement to the press, he said that the album will be mostly new material, and that in addition to singing and playing the guitar he’ll be producing it as well. It will also be a family affair, with Berry’s kids on guitar and harmonica, and will be dedicated to his wife: “This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy. My darlin’ I’m growing old! I’ve worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!”
Chuck will come out sometime next year. And you can read a little bit more about the project right here. 
Falwell and Clinton 
Jerry Falwell was seated next to President Clinton on a recent flight. After the plane was airborne, the flight attendant came around for drink orders. The President asked for a whiskey & soda, which was brought and placed before him.The attendant then asked the minister if he would also like a drink. The minister replied in disgust, "Ma'am, I'd rather be savagely raped by a brazen whore than let liquor touch these lips!"  The President then handed his drink back to the attendant and said, "I'm sorry, I didn't know there was a choice. I'll have the same thing he's having."
