R.I.P. Jack Klugman (1922-2012)

December 24, 2012
Rest In Peace, precious keeper of Token Eskimos. No more with the neck. May you always and forever win, place, or show. May Blanche toss out the bad alimony checks. May you cross paths with Bummy Davis and Dick Clark. May you win a car and park anywhere you want without being hassled and hustled by John Byner. May your room be not boiled, but bronzed. And may God never accuse you of stealing the $50, even though all the evidence points towards you. May you never have to go to Heaven Court with Tony Randall. May your stomach forever be free of pain, and may there be a never ending river of ketchup, that leads to eternal and infinite lasagna and french fries. I love you. Mr. Klugman. You make me laugh now more than ever before, and you have been a hero of mine since I was 5. Rest well, and have a blast with Tony tonight... and remember, if it's raining don't sit on it on the valor couch! The smell reminds you. Rest In Peace, Oscar. Oscar. Oscar.

Jack Klugman epitomized the old-school sports writer. Oscar Madison, the slovenly half of the Odd Couple, was brought to vivid life by actor Jack Klugman, who died on Christmas Eve. Oscar gambled, drank, smoked. He was messy, crude and grumpy. He was a sportswriter's sportswriter. SPORTSONEARTH.COM|BY DAVE KINDRED
