GB - What if she faints when she hears your voice......???? I think we should start a business of finding lost Eastsiders......It could be a chapter in the book! Oh! Repeat after me..." Dr E gets the points and Dr T buys the drinks"...one more time!

Question for the Denby Folk: Was Denby the team that played Dearborn-Divine Child in the final Goodfellows Game?

Chuck: Sadly so! '65, '66 and '67...all the same!! The history follows.

The '58 game stands out in my mind...a buddy of mine played Safety for Denby...Redford was leading late in the game...my buddy cuts in front of a receiver and intercepts a pass in the flat...clear field in front of him for a sure touchdown...he slipped on a wet field and fell down without being touched...Redford wins and goes to the Goodfellows Game. We lost touch over the years but I'll bet he still remembers that one!

Chuck: Yeah, over the years Denby played pretty top level football...during the years I was there...'55-'59...there was a head coach named Ed Rutherford...little guy but tough as nails...he lived on the same street as ES61...he went on to be an assistant coach at MSU...don't know if he ever became a head college coach anywhere...ES's dad was a high school league referee as well as a school administrator so ES probably knows a lot more. Rutherford was a hell of a coach but it didn't hurt that he had a guy like Ed Budde (MSU and Kansas City Chiefs) on his squad...Ed was a classmate of mine.

Goblue....Cool - I remember Ed Rutherford, a familiar name in MSU Athletics; pretty sure that at one time he coached the MSU Soccer Team too.

Chuck: Interesting that Rutherford would have coached Soccer as well. He ended my football career when as a freshman about 5'6" weighing maybe 110 lbs. he assigned me to hold the blocking dummy for Ed Budde who was probably 6' and weighed at least 180...he looked like a freight train coming at me...decided that was bullshit and switched to Denby golf and hockey in the recreation leagues...where I could make up for lack of size with a long stick!.by the time I was a senior I was 6' and weighed 160...pretty normal for hockey players in those days...football was not my game! ES will weigh in one of these days...his game was tennis...you know what those guys were like...he made up for it by chasing every TAR who wore a skirt...he only caught a few though...most notably SH!

Goblue...Roger-that & 10-4.

The only opportunity I had to enter a football game for Mackenzie was in the role of place-kicker...I was a very thin dude.

I did attend one semester at Cass Tech; had the opportunity to watch Denby take our swimming team apart....hats off to the Tars - always a top-notch athletic program. I even got to meet Olympian Shelia Young, in 1976...shouted "Go Denby" during her downtown celebration.

Let's see....who else; another Denby Tar and good friend of mine at Western Michigan University was Larry Claxton - a WMU Bronco track teammate and class-act all the way.

Also.......my sister and husband live on Eastwood - less than a mile from Denby.

PS Right-On...reliable sources tell me that Mr. Ed Budde was one of the best football players in DPSSAL history!

Chuck: Small world!! Your sister lives on Eastwood...I lived on Fordham...a little over a block east of Chalmers...ES61 lived on Eastwood in his diaper days...then his dad moved them to Mapleridge where ES became head of the Mob...interesting too your friend at WMU...I'm WMU '63...GoBlue is from grad school...ES61 is a Greenie but even so he's a decent guy for a shrink...although he's a bit of a cheap ass refusing to give up points for the M-MSU game...I would agree that Ed Budde was one of the best to ever come out of the city in terms of football...he had an arm full of stripes on his letter sweater from gold for Denby to I think red for All American High School...all I can tell you is that the mf looked like a damn freight train running straight at me...once they revived me I threw the damn helmet aside and left the field...I much preferred being on ice and having a stick in my hand...even if we did play in the pre-helmet days.

Chuck/ GB- Denby was the powerhouse that GB has described. Pershing once in a while would surface to challenge the TARS. Eddie R did live on Mapleridge and I did live on Eastwood until 8th grade when we moved. Eddie R had about 25 children and did take advantage of the MSU stint. His brother Doug Rutherford was the football coach at Osborn HS which made for interesting football games when the two school met each other.

My father did referee many of those Goodfellows games that GB listed....It was a big honor to be selected to officiate the game...
GB was a "DAC" (Denby Athletic Club) in HS especially on Friday's when he would wear his letter sweater with all this ninth grader women hanging all over him...there was one named SH who discovered Ballduck park as part of GB's outreach and exploration program.

Since GB was a Parks/Rec Hockey rat and a TAR golfer he certainly knew how to stick handle and have his "balls" washed.

GB did grow up on Fordham but with all of his faults, especially when it comes to point spreads, he is truly an EASTSIDER....and I think that one of the Gold Stripes on his letter sweater had to do with some incident on Parkgrove and Salter....I am sure he will come clean some time about this ......

Chuck: Obviously one can believe very little from a TAR turned San Francisco Californian...not exactly a locale noted for mental stability! ES continues to confused the fact that I took a freshman to the senior prom...while he spent his ENTIRE senior year in the back seat of his father's car with SH...small wonder that he became a Greenie after she tossed his ass overboard...geeez...these multi-striped letter sweater tennis guys...I'm certain that SH spent more than a few Friday's wearing ES's letter sweater...which he very likely exchanged for "favors"!

GB/Chuck- This fact has been triple checked - A former WMU bronco took his blue/gold DHS - Tars letter sweater and unstitched the whole thing in order to take the gold thread and he was able to weave a pair of knee length socks that he wore to football games in the late 60's and various alumni functions.

Chuck: The latest word is that ES61 has purchased a first class ticket to Ann Arbor in his unrelenting search for SH. The truth is that she booted his ass years ago and joined a nunnery. Its not likely that he'll be able to get in the habit!
