  3. I enjoyed being a friend of Mad Dog. I would sit and talk to him and he would tell me how he got his name and many stories about his upbringing. He told me how tough his dad was as a policeman and how he always encouraged him when he was in school. I brought my two grandsons to visit him and he was so soft and gentle to them and didn’t want to scare them. Most of his fans are grandparents now and the younger people today have no idea who he was. When thing I will always remember was a visit to the hospital to visit him and he insisted on me playing kings in the corner before the nurses could do their thing with him. I am glad I knew him at the highlight of his career and could give him the pleasure of a good card game and friendship during his final years.
