Shirtless Saturday: Alex Karras & Other Football Bears From “Paper Lion”

alex-karras-paper-lion-02

SuperBowl frenzy is about one week away (go Cardinals!*) and I’ve been watching some classic American Football films recently.  One of my favorites is Paper Lion.  It’s probably one of the earliest “reality movie” I’ve seen as most of the athletes were not actors.  It also gave a fascinating look at how football used to be like 40 years ago.

* Yes, I’m a bandwagoneer.  I’m torn because Steelers’ Big Ben is pretty woofy.  He just needs to bulk up a bit in my very shallow opinion.

And for this Shirtless Saturday, here are four of the beefy football bears from Paper Lion.  Of course, my favorite in the bunch is definitely the sexy daddy bear, Alex Karras.

The next set are screenshots of Roger Shoals (who I thought was a younger Brian Dennehy at the time), Alex Karras, and John Gordy…

Well, I will have to abruptly stop here.  I will post more screenshots of Roger Shoals, John Gordy, Roger Brown, and more of Alex Karras tomorrow.

I just want to sit back away from my monitor for a minute to realize that I have finally done my part on the internet and uploaded such screenshots of the wonderfully handsome Alex Karras being shirtless.  You guys can pretty much imagine how I would keep searching high and low for such images…  As far as video clips are concerned, I will eventually upload them to YouTube and update you guys here.

Happy Father’s Day!

Look long and hard enough, you’ll find My Number One Bear wearing nothing but his full Father’s Day suit…  -_^
