Garo RIP

A fellow fan sent me this...the necktie mention was interesting so I dug around. Found this article which is a nice tribute...and it's true. How random and interesting.

Nice article about the passing of Garo dude.

Loved the card too and it prompted me to look out my own!  On the back of one it says he made neckties during the off season. Not sure if these were facts or random jokes at the time.

Thought I'd share anyway. :)

Yes he did make and sell neckties. In the style of the 70's those ties were pretty wide and striped so they would completely clash with plaid jackets and pants. Those styles followed the thin black ties and black suits of the conservative 60's.

After Garo batted the INT to Dick Bass in the SB, many Dolphins threatened to hang him with one of his ties. Luckily for him, it all work out in the end.
