He Ain't No Bum - Update: I've read 131 out of 142 pages.

He Ain't No Bum - O.A. Phillips, Ray Buck

Bum is asked what kind of football player he had been:

“’I thought I was real good until I looked back and saw a film of me. Most disappointin’ experience I ever had.’”

 

Bum on playing against the Steel Curtain:

“’Playin’ Pittsburgh is like eatin’ an ice cream cone on a hot, summer day. Sometime before you can get it all in your mouth, it gets all over ya.’”
