The Dead Collector: Bring out yer dead.
[a man puts a body on the cart]
Large Man with Dead Body: Here's one.
The Dead Collector: That'll be ninepence.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not dead.
The Dead Collector: What?
Large Man with Dead Body: Nothing. There's your ninepence.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not dead.
The Dead Collector: 'Ere, he says he's not dead.
Large Man with Dead Body: Yes he is.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm not.
The Dead Collector: He isn't.
Large Man with Dead Body: Well, he will be soon, he's very ill.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I'm getting better.
Large Man with Dead Body: No you're not, you'll be stone dead in a moment.
The Dead Collector: Well, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I don't want to go on the cart.
Large Man with Dead Body: Oh, don't be such a baby.
The Dead Collector: I can't take him.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I feel fine.
Large Man with Dead Body: Oh, do me a favor.
The Dead Collector: I can't.
Large Man with Dead Body: Well, can you hang around for a couple of minutes? He won't be long.
The Dead Collector: I promised I'd be at the Robinsons'. They've lost nine today.
Large Man with Dead Body: Well, when's your next round?
The Dead Collector: Thursday.
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I think I'll go for a walk.
Large Man with Dead Body: You're not fooling anyone, you know. Isn't there anything you could do?
The Dead Body That Claims It Isn't: I feel happy. I feel happy.
[the Dead Collector glances up and down the street furtively, then silences the Body with his a whack of his club]
Large Man with Dead Body: Ah, thank you very much.
The Dead Collector: Not at all. See you on Thursday.
Large Man with Dead Body: Right.

"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."

God was going to take Coach Wooden into his eternal embrace.

Then Sam Gilbert kicked some money upstairs and God decided to leave the Coach on the mortal coil for a while longer. :hide:

He's now official...

Way too cool, guy got to see it all and then some...

Along with Lombardi, JBrown, Ruth, Chamberlain, etc, I'll take the old timer's opinions that he was THE best...

Had the opportunity to meet him once when he was in Baton Rouge visiting Coach Dale Brown. Fantastic presence about him, yet completely unassuming and grandfatherly. Great man indeed, he was as large a figure for college basketball as there has ever been.

just got done watching a special on Big Ten Network on when he was a player with the boilermakers. Just amazingly well done. I know, I have no clue as again, I'm just a kid, but it really helped me gain even more insight into how truly great he was.

Meh. Abolish dunking and raise the rim?

Man would have ruined basketball if given the chance. Like watching the WNBA.
