    Sam & Nellie's? Doesn't ring a bell. However, my Uncle Wally once ran a place called Salmonella's, where he sold month-old kielbasa. Between the meat and the name, the place didn't last long.

    The three longest shots in three major sports, with Vegas still to weigh in on the Lions. Well, at least we're number one in something.

    You've just made me feel 10 years older than I already am. Sigh.

    Guess I'll have to reconsider all future pop-cultural references to Wagon Train, Don Mossi, or Brewster the Goebel Rooster.....
