George Allen (1918-1990) - Find A Grave Memorial

Every time you win, you’re reborn; when you lose, you die a little.”   —   George Allen Sr.

(When I was a kid, and a little unsettled as a serious football fan, I was a fan of the Washington Redskins.  I know they no longer go by that name – 😥 – but that was their name back in the early 1970s.  George Allen was famous for putting together a team of almost all veterans.  They were nicknamed “The Over-the-Hill Gang“!  They made it to Super Bowl VII, with a record of 11-3.  There were only 14 games in a season back then.  They lost to the undefeated Miami Dolphins, but they were fun to watch.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Forget the past – the future will give you plenty to worry about.”   —   George Allen, Sr.

(I don’t think most people worry about the past, per sé.  I think many may regret certain things in their past.  And, they might worry about the past coming back to haunt them, but that is essentially worrying about the future anyway.  I guess George’s message is just to not dwell on the past.  What’s done is done, and you can’t do anything to change it.  Might as well be forward looking.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Every time you win, you’re reborn; when you lose, you die a little.”   —   George Allen, Sr.

(When I was still a kid, searching for my own football identity, I was a big Redskins fan!  I loved George Allen’s Over-the Hill Gang!  Billy Kilmer, Sonny Jurgensen, Chris Hanburger, Charley Taylor, Paul Krause, Myron Pottios, Ron McDole, Richie Petitbon and Co.  George preferred experienced veterans to the youngsters right out of college.  They had winning seasons with that strategy, but fell short of winning the Super Bowl.  Those were the good old days!  If you get a chance, check out Google today.  Their masthead is a tribute to Art Clokey’s – Gumby’s creator – 90th birthday.  When you click on the block “G”, or any of the balls of clay, you get some semi-classic claymation!  Of course the “classic” claymation wasn’t computer generated.  Gumby and Pokey were cartoon standards when I was growing up, as was Davey and Goliath, another favorite.  There was a religious message, but they weren’t heavy-handed about it.  Check it out.  These tributes are usually one day only things.  Peace.)   —   YUR
