It seems to have worked out for "Fats" because, at the time, I doubt many would have thought that he would have seen his 49th birthday.

There is an episode of that Steelers' themed show with "Woolf and Tunch" where they interview the longtime press guru for the Steelers, Joe Gordon. Gordon is a guy you would love to take to dinner and get drunk just to hear him spill the beans about those guys from the seventies. I'm sure he has got some great stories.

Anyways, Gordon spent some time on the show talking about Ernie Holmes. He spoke about the helicopter incident and other issues such as the time Fats" hung a reporter by the collar on a hook in the locker room. That is on one of the related you tubes'

Your welcome ... enjoy. I learned things from that interview and I have been a fan since the late seventies. For example, I didn't know of "The Chief's" fondness for hockey.
