Originally posted by jvnole: Other than Dexter's 47 and the flag on Clark's head, I remember with most delight Kirk Carruthers's spirited play (as an undersized LB--16 tackles, 2 picks, 1 fumble recovery) and P.T.'s 50-yarder to Ronnie Lewis off the goal line. We've seen that play much more often in recent years--but in 89 is seemed far more gutsy to come off the goal line like that.
That fumble on the goal line happened right in front of our seats...it seem to be loose forever before Kirk jomped on it. If that play was in a movie there would have been 15 cuts from the time the ball was fumbled till it was recovered.
About John Brown, its a long story involving a broken arm, mutual doctor and an FSU trainer, but the jist is I was introduced to JB while he was the doorman/bouncer at CJ's during Nickle beer night. From that night on, he always let me and my guests avoid the ridiculous line that happened every Friday night. The guy never forgot me even a year later. So of course, I thought the guy was pretty cool. But I tell you what, he ruled that door and place without question. He wouldn't hesitate to kick anybody out for any infraction. And any pretty-face girl who thought they could use their looks and a bad ID and talk their way in were roundly rejected. I knew a Tri-delt who said her sisters hated CJ's cause they couldn't get the younger ones in. Sometimes just watching JB work the door was entertaining as hell.
