as a kid I always liked him bc of his funny pass.
RIP Garo Yepremian.
Hey dude thanks for that post. I'm big into music and BB always fascinated me. He fascinated me in the way I knew nothing about him personally and never saw him do interviews. I'm also fascinated by race relations in this country and knowing BB was that age where he must have witnessed a lot I always wondered to myself was he an angry bitter man who didn't care for most folks or was he a jolly friendly guy who had appreciation for other people people and if he was in a happy place in this world.
Sounds like you at least got a good feel for him and that's awesome getting to know a legend like that. Not to turn this into a race debate but a Moron like Al Sharpton could learn a lot from guys like MLK and BB in the way to work with other people peacefully in spreading the message instead of pissing people off and segregating people like only Sharpton knows how.
May he rest in peace.
That's really sad. He always seemed like a true gentleman. May he rest in peace
Sorry if already posted....
The blinding bright lights on the mountaintop of Perfectville have flickered in tribute.
Condolences to his friends and family.. RIP #1
As recently as January, alluding to the New England Patriots’ “Deflategate” controversy, Yepremian posted on Twitter, “Forty-two years later I realize I should have deflated the ball to get a better grip on it.”
HA, epic. rip Garo!
I vaguely remember a part of his book where he pissed off a very cheap Joe Robbie by kicking balls deep into the stands for souvenirs. Robbie was upset because of the cost of the footballs, and came up with a net to prevent it.
As I recall, Garo then kicked balls into Flipper's tank for souvenirs during pre-game and practice.
Pretty sure it's very close accurate but could not find the quotes from Garo.
We always remember perfect Garo, RIP
RIP... I am/was friends with him on Linkedin...
Just saw this on the Herald. RIP Garo...clutch kicker just not a good QB...lots of great memories of game winners from him. You just knew when the game was on the line Garo was going to kick it through.
In your honor Garo I kicked a cat soccer style this morning lol
