Heard a Cub fan a few days back call the Score to complain about the cancellation of the game after Darryl Kile's death. To support his argument this bonehead cited the example of baseball in the wake of JFK's assassination in 1963--"They went on with the baseball games then" he said.

Talk about your extended season and playoffs.....they must've played the Series in December that year!

(JFK, as I'm sure every Sox fan knows, was killed on Nov. 22nd, 1963--the NFL played the following Sunday)

Did the guys on the radio correct him? Or at least hang up on him and make fun of him on the air afterward for half an hour.

The NFL took heat over this for a long time especially since the "baby" AFL had cancelled their games.

Nope--they passed right over it. In their defense, they get so many idiots calling up and saying preposterous stuff they probably tend not to waste their breath. Then again, most of the Score hosts are saving their breath to say preposterous stuff themselves.....

If the caller said that to Boers & Bernsie, Lorne Greene would have followed, no doubt. And the caller would have later been nailed on "Who you crappin'?"
